Before applying any color to your lips, it’s important to make sure you’re prepping the perfect base. Lip care often goes overlooked, but it can have a huge impact on how your products look once applied!
We recommend starting with a lip scrub, like this DIY brown sugar scrub that only takes a few minutes to make!
Why use a lip scrub?
After some gentle exfoliation, it’s good practice to give your lips some moisture.
Some products, like the Subtl Beauty Lip and Cheek Tint, have moisturizing ingredients in them already!
Here are some more ways you can ensure properly hydrated lips:

As you probably already know, there are tons of different types of lip products out there! From glosses to stains, it can get confusing to know what is what and how to use it. That’s why we created this lip care and wear guide to give you a short introduction to some of the most popular lip products.
Our jojoba-infused, semi-matte Lip and Cheek Tints are powerhouse products, offering multiple uses with one single product.
Before You Apply
When you first open your Lip and Cheek you may notice that it's hard to pick up pigment at first. This is because our Lip and Cheek tints are formulated to withstand extreme conditions without melting and leaking like other Lip products.
If you're using your Lip and Cheek for the first time, we recommend using the warmth of your finger to warm up the formula by swirling in the pan for 20-30 seconds. After that, the application should become easier.
There are a few ways you can apply your Subtl Beauty lip tint, each with different effects.
Did you know Ashline achieved both of these lip looks with the same Plum Lip and Cheek tint? Here's how.
This is probably the easiest way of applying lip tint, and gives the most subtl(e) look!
If you’re looking for vibrant, bold color, this is the way to go! Dabbing on color allows you to build up pigment without moving it around too much.
Using a lip brush to apply product helps define the edges of your lips, giving a more structured look.
Subtl Tip: try putting on lip balm or primer first to help your look last all day!

Feel free to experiment with intensity, color, or even get creative and use it as eyeliner. Try pairing plum with a natural eyeshadow look, or pair a natural shade like mauve with a bold graphic liner!
Subtl Tip: to add a little extra to your look, try layering a clear or shimmery gloss over top of your lip tint!
Another great thing about lip tints is how easy they are to touch up throughout the day. Because they don’t dry down like liquid or traditional lipsticks, layering is no problem at all!
