Do you live boldly? I’ve done a few bold things in my life like move to Australia by myself, I’ve gone sky diving, I’ve gone bungy jumping, and I’ve walked down a few sketchy streets, but I wouldn’t say that I’ve lived boldly on a daily basis until more recently. I’ve never been much a lipstick wearer, let alone red lipstick, but in the past couple of years, I’ve been rocking a bold lip! Red? Yes! Bright pink? Yes! Orange? Yup! Purple? Sure, why not? But those bold lip colors are super drying! And chapstick just doesn’t cut it, so I’ve been DIYing my own little Watermelon Kiwi Lip Sugar Scrub to prep my lips prior to applying my lipstick. The recipe is below, but first, you’ll need a few ingredients. Don’t worry, you don’t actually need a watermelon unless you want to snack on it while you make the sugar scrub like I did! Instead, just use a few drop of watermelon flavoring which you can find online.
- 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp kiwi juice and seeds
- 3 drops watermelon flavoring
- beet juice - optional for color
- In a bowl, mix together your sugar, coconut oil, kiwi juice, and watermelon flavoring.
- If your watermelon flavoring isn't colored, you can add a few drops of beet juice to color the mixture pink.
- And be sure to include the kiwi seeds! They make it look like tiny watermelon seeds!
- Either store in tiny pots or store in a jar and keep refrigerated.
Lip sugar scrub, then chapstick, then lip liner, then a bright, bold lipstick! Ready to go? Well, almost! You can’t rock a bold lip and have bad breath! People will remember you as the girl with bright lipstick and bad breath. Can’t have that. So I use LISTERINE® Antiseptic before heading out the door in the morning. LISTERINE® is the #1 dentist recommended mouthwash brand. Brushing misses 75% of your mouth. LISTERINE® cleans virtually 100% and kills 99.9% of bad breath germs.
Ok, so let’s try this again. LISTERINE® Antiseptic, lip sugar scrub, chapstick, lip liner, then bright, bold lipstick! And can’t forget the fun, silly sunglasses! Now, I’m ready to go! I picked up my LISTERINE® Antiseptic at CVS Pharmacy along with a few new, bright pink lipsticks for summer. And if you’re looking for more inspiration on how to live boldly, check out this website here. Or follow LISTERINE® on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
