When you see pictures of celebrities wearing this type of lip look, the result is usually natural, glossy and very sultry. However, since we all have pigment in our lips, the look cannot be achieved with lip gloss alone. The key is to find the right lipstick that works for you, and depending on your skin tone, the color may vary anywhere from a cream or light pink color all the way to a medium coffee tone.

If your lips are flaky or chapped, slough off the dead skin cells with a soft toothbrush or a lip exfoliator. Then, apply a lip conditioning balm or stick to hydrate and soften lips. You can also try a lip plumper such as Lip Fusion ($36 at sephora.com) for more fullness.
