Your lips are about to see a lot of action soon (because V-day), and prepping them to be irresistibly kissable is a must. Read on for sure-fire ways to scoring pucker-worthy lips. And oh, if you’re single, scroll down, too! Pillowy soft lips reinforce the staying power of your lipstick—the color lasts longer and looks better. Plus, with a luscious pout, you look healthier and younger.
Start with good oral hygiene
Never underestimate the power of fresh breath and a dazzling smile. Brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste with optical brighteners that guarantee a sparkling smile after just one use.

Buff your lips
Revive dry, chapped lips by polishing it with a sweet, edible lip scrub. Wipe off the remnants with a clean tissue.
Lush The Kiss Lip Scrub

Seal in moisture
Score soft kissable lips from generous applications of a moisturizing lip balm. Grab a tube that brings out the natural shade of your pout—a.k.a. that much coveted MLBB (my lips but better) tint.

Once your puckers have absorbed the lip balm, add on color. Planning on rocking a cherry red lip on V-day? Better switch gears. Based on a recent FN survey, most guys say they love the natural pink hue of your lip. So, give your favorite bold lippies a break and stick to a pink lip tint. You wouldn’t want to gice your guy clownish lips right after a makeout sesh, right?
