About the Expert
Hi, my name is Taylor Babaian. I'm a celebrity makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you a few anti-aging tips for your lips. So when you're trying to duplicate a youthful lip, first choose a color that has a little bit of pink to duplicate youth. Second, choose product that actually has some sunscreen so you prevent future aging. Third, choose something that has matte. It has a little bit of moisturizing properties to really plump out those lines. So to get the look I'm going to use L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm in plus plum. So for Bianca's lips I'm choosing something that's warm that goes great with her complexion but has a little bit of pink to ensure that she has that youthful tone. Since we're just choosing a color that's not nude I'm just going to use an applicator brush just because I want to apply it fairly perfectly. Of course you're welcome to use it straight out of the tube. So this product actually has shea butter so it instantly conditions the lips. So if you have any dryness you'll see instant plumping. It's just really going to hydrate those lips and make them look nice and plump. So what I love about this lipstick is that it actually does a lot of things with just one application. One it conditions your lips so you get that lip balm effect. It's nice and hydrating. It has sunscreen in it. It has SPF 15 so it gives you that protection from the sun and most people actually won't put a sunscreen on before they apply their lipstick because you know you're generally busy in the daytime. And of course it has that beautiful rich color that you can't really get out of a lip balm only. So what a lot of people don't know is that your lips actually don't have pores or oil glands. So it's really important to condition it and protect it using sunscreen which a lot of people don't actually know, which is why as they get older your lips actually do shrink if you don't protect them. So this is a color that I use on my clients all the time actually. A lot of times my clients will be kind of set in their ways and want to use like a matte red which actually just lets people know you know what, I'm from the 80s and I'm not going to change my ways. That pink with a little bit of shimmer and definitely mauve with a little brown undertone really kind of gives you that youthful look but at the same time it's very natural and wearable for day or evening. So we've completed Bianca's beautiful youthful lip. So to get the look at home, remember three things, choose a color that has a little bit of pink undertone, something that has moisturizing properties and a little sunscreen to prevent future aging. So that's a few anti-aging tips for your lips. I'm Taylor Babaian. Thanks for watching.
