First of all i start with my favorite lip scrub which is the infamous lush bubble gum lip scrub to get rid of all the dry skin on your lips
after i clean it off with a towel or a napkin (and usually lick half of it), i use nuxe's reve de miel lip balm to moisturize my lips. by the way i highly recommend trying this,its one of the best lip balms i have ever tried AND it smells and tastes like mangos which is a big plus for me.
then i just let my lips absorb it then i put my lipstick on which is usually macs brick-ola.
*TIP: always carry around a stick lip blam, i love burts bees peppermint one because its not tinted and its minty and its small so it doesn't take much space in your carry on.
