We are now in the back end of summer, a summer full of beach trips and sunshine, pool parties and outdoor fun, so now after months of hot sunny days,how are your lips doing?
Are they feeling at all dried out or less than luscious?
I've just been on CharlotteTilbury.com ordering some of her new Hot Lips lipsticks, and got all excited about her lip treatment products. Which in turn got me thinking about the Charlotte Tilbury perfect lip.

Have you blown up pictures of her red carpet clients and looked at their amazingly gorgeous pouts? (I routinely blow up and analyse everything Charlotte does. As a makeup artist I think of it as research...)
Anyway, Charlotte has a method to create that perfect lip.
How To Create Charlotte Tilbury's Perfect LipStep One: before you start your makeup you need to pre-treat your lip so that lipstick will sit and hold properly. The first step is to exfoliate the lip and get rid of any dry, flaky bits.

Charlotte starts by using her Lip Love, a super gentle and ultra nourishing lip exfoliant.
Step Two is to apply a super healing, hydrating, nourishing lip balm and let it soak into your lips while you do the rest of your makeup.
Charlotte Tilbury has an amazing lip balm called Lip Magic that is made with propolis, a natural elixir that comes from honeybees and is known to boost the immune system.

Charlotte's Lip Magic also works with your lipstick to give an even application and sustained color. It's the bomb!

Step Three: Line your lips. Lip liner not only keeps your lipstick from traveling into the little lines around your mouth, but also allows your to reshape your lips. You can even them out where they aren't balanced, accent your cupid's bow - you can make your lips perfect with a really good lip liner.

I reshape lips with a nude liner, one of my all time favorites is Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude lip liner.
Step Four: The lipstick. Charlotte's lipsticks are amazing.

I've written about her Matte Revolution Red Carpet Red many times. It's one of my favorite reds, and I would go as far as saying it's an iconic red lipstick.
In the new Hot Lips collection there is a shade called Kim K.W. which is a pinky tribute to Kim Kardashian West's signature nude lip.

Even though the collection was just recently released the shade is already a best seller.
I also love Charlotte's K.I.S.S.I.N.G collection of super hydrating lipsticks. One of the greatest colors is a soft pinky nude called Bitch Perfect. It really is the perfect shade for everyone.
