“I create the perfect pucker by applying a layer of lipstick, blotting my lips on a tissue, and then reapplying another layer. For some reason, this method seems to help the color last longer. Then I apply a layer of clear lip gloss, for shine.”
– Viv Sicherman, NY
“The perfect pucker begins with nude lip-liner and a neutral, matte pink shade of lipstick. I keep my lips in good shape by keeping them hydrated with either plain Vaseline, ChapStick or tinted lip balm. I prefer a natural, healthy look.”
– Anne Sicherman, NY
“I use foundation on my lips then I lip line them. Use 4 different lipsticks and then add lip venom.”
– Rosanne Morrison, IL
“My tip… put Vaseline on your lips at bedtime… wake up with soft smooth lips.”
– Susan Simon, PA
“Wash your face every night and use a retina A component to take away the wrinkles!”
– Lorie Ann Corron, MD
“Keep your lips moist to prevent cracking and dryness and choose your lip-gloss or lipstick that suits your individual skin type. Try samples before you buy if possible to see how they look and feel before buying the full sized product.”
– Angela Jacobs, CA
“I create the perfect pucker by exfoliating my lips, applying a little bit of Shea butter, then applying some lip stick or lip gloss. Also, I think that confidence is what makes a sexy kiss!”
– Jennifer Jiggetts, MD
“My tip for creating a perfect pucker is to first start by exfoliating your lips with a soft bristle toothbrush. Wet it and lightly rub your lips with it to take off dead skin. Next put on a ChapStick like Burt’s Bees to help them stay healthy and unchapped and it has a great peppermint taste. And finally, put on a lip gloss of your fave shade. I also suggest one with a great taste that you and your guy both love..and last but not least. Enjoy ;)”
– Kristen Grey, VA
“To create a smooth, perfectly formed pucker, I put my base liquid makeup on my lips. Then, I carefully outline my lips with a lip liner… and then lipstick… blot… and a light layer of lip gloss! Makes for a perfect, pouty mouth every time!
“But having perfectly made-up lips is only step one… the ultimate goal is the perfect kiss! Slow and sensual, quick and passionate — both can be fantastic, but only if you are kissing the right mate! After waiting 38 years for the ideal mate, I can safely say I have kissed many frogs until I found my prince!”
– Dru Mooney, NC (Engaged to be married October 2009)
“I have fair skin. What I do to create the perfect pout is use a neutral liner and usually use a medium to light color on the lips because I love to play up the eyes and don’t want to appear overly made up. When I go lighter on the eyes, I will reach for my red or dark coral lipstick.”
– Michelle Henriquez, CA
“Use a lip liner that is close to your natural lip color. Choose a fun, flirty shade of lipstick in pink, red or berry. Finish with a soft, shiny lip gloss. I like kissing to be slow, taking time to explore. Eye contact and whispered sweet nothings are turn-ons.”
– Veronica Garrett, GA
