About the Expert
Hi. My name is Taylor Babaian. I'm a celebrity makeup artist. Today I'm going to show you an effective way to prevent your lips from wrinkling as you get older. So, what a lot of people don't know is that our lips just like our skin age as we get older. So, it's real important to use a product that has anti-aging properties. So, to get the look, I'm going to use L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm in blush pump. So, for Bianca's lips I'm choosing something that's warm that go great with her complexion that has a little bit of pink to insure that she has that youthful tone. Since which 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. But you're welcome to use it straight out of the tube. So, this product actually has shay butter. So it instantly conditions the lips. So, if you have any dryness, you'll see instant plumping. It's just 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 then 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 lips 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 you're 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 times my clients will be kind of set in their ways and want to use kind of 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 bit of 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 rosy lip look. And if you do incorporate sunscreen as well a moisturizing property, it will prevent lips from wrinkling as you age. So, there you have it. That's how you prevent lips from wrinkling as you get older. I'm Taylor Babaian. Thanks for watching.
