8 LIP CARE ROUTINES YOU NEED TO TRY



"In what order should I use the products?"
"What time of the day is best to use the mask?"
"Is there only one lip routine I should do or are there more options?"
"How do I use the Lip Serum correctly?"


The answers to those questions (and more!) can be found in this blog post.

I’ve compiled a list of the 8 most popular and effective Henné lip care routines. If you’re a creature of habit, you'll find one routine that you love the most and stick with, or if you like to change things up, try out a couple of new routines each week. Personally, my lip care routine varies from week to week, depending on my schedule and my mood.

Whatever your lip care preference is, I believe you'll find a routine below that will fit perfectly with your schedule/lifestyle and that you'll seriously love doing.

2-Step (Smoothen + Soften/Hydrate)
Products needed: Lip Serum, Lip Mask
How often: Daily
Time required: 15-30 minutes
Ideal for: The focus is anti-aging (as this is the ultimate time-defying lip duo)
1. Apply a couple layers of the Lip Serum. Wait a few minutes for it to fully absorb.
2. Put on a thick layer of the Lip Mask to lock in all the Lip Serum goodness. For daytime, leave it on for 15-30 minutes and then gently wipe it off with a tissue. For evening, leave it on overnight.
Result: Smooth, youthful, hydrated lips.



2-Step (Smoothen + Color)
Products needed: Lip Serum, Luxury Lip Tint
How often: Daily
Time required: 5 minutes or less
Ideal for: When you want to prime the lips before applying color
1. Apply a couple layers of the Lip Serum. Wait a few minutes for it to fully absorb.
2. Apply a Luxury Lip Tint. Use one layer for a sheer hint of color or multiple layers for a more stronger look.
Result: By using the Lip Serum as a primer, it helps the lip tint color go on smoother and more evenly.


2-Step (Exfoliate + Color)
Products needed: Lip Exfoliator, Luxury Lip Tint
How often: 3-4 times per week
Time required: 2 minutes
Ideal for: Making sure lips are flake-free before adding lip color
1. Scoop out a pea sized amount of the exfoliator and apply to damp lips. Gently massage in a circular motion for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Rinse with warm water.
2. Apply one layer (or a few layers) of a Luxury Lip Tint.
Result: Getting rid of all the dead skin on the lips ensures that there are no visible flakes once you apply lip color.



3-Step (Plump/Prep, Moisturize, Color)
Products needed: Lip Serum, Luxury Lip Balm V2, Luxury Lip Tint
How often: Daily
Time required: 5 minutes or less
Ideal for: The colder months, or for those who have extra dry lips
1. Apply a couple layers of the Lip Serum. Wait a few minutes for it to fully absorb.
2. Apply a thin layer of the Luxury Lip Balm V2 onto the lips.
3. Apply one layer (or a few layers) of a Luxury Lip Tint.
Result: By adding a layer of the V2 lip balm, your lips will get that extra boost of moisturization.


3-Step (Exfoliate, Prep, Color)
Products needed: Lip Exfoliator, Lip Serum, Luxury Lip Tint
How often: Daily
Time required: 5 minutes or less
Ideal for: When you have a few more minutes on-hand and want to make sure your lips are 100% perfect before wearing lip color
1. Scoop out a pea sized amount of the exfoliator and apply to damp lips. Gently massage in a circular motion for about 30 seconds. Rinse with warm water.
2. Apply a couple layers of the Lip Serum. Wait a few minutes for it to fully absorb.
3. Apply one layer (or a few layers) of a Luxury Lip Tint.
Resut: Flake-free lips from the exfoliator and color that applies smoothly and evening onto lips due to the serum.


3-Step (Exfoliate, Smoothen, Soften)
Products needed: Lip Exfoliator, Lip Serum, Lip Mask
How often: 3-4 times per week (ideal for evening/bedtime)
Time required: 7 minutes or less
Ideal for: Evening/bedtime
1. Scoop out a pea sized amount of the exfoliator and apply to damp lips. Gently massage in a circular motion for about 30 seconds. Rinse with warm water.
2. Apply a couple layers of the Lip Serum. Wait a few minutes for it to fully absorb.
3. Put on a thick layer of the lip mask. Leave it on overnight.
Result: Flake-free lips ensure that the Lip Serum and Lip Mask are hard at work on smoothening and hydrating new skin on the lips.




3-Step (Hydrate/Soften, Anti-Aging, Moisturize)
Products needed: Lip Mask, Lip Serum, Luxury Lip Balm
How often: Daily (ideal for evening/bedtime)
Time required: 15-30 minutes
Ideal for: Those with delicate pillowcases (the Lip Mask can stain if you roll around too much when you sleep)
1. Put on a thick layer of the Lip Mask. Leave on for 15-30 minutes. Gently wipe off the lips with a tissue.
2. Apply a couple layers of the Lip Serum. Wait a few minutes for it to fully absorb.
3. Apply a thick layer of the Luxury Lip Balm to lock in the benefits of the Lip Serum. Leave it on overnight.
Results: The mask softens and hydrates the lips, the serum provides a layer of anti-aging oils, and the balm seals in everything so your lips can work their magic overnight.
