lip treatments

My most terrible habit is picking and biting my lips. I’ve done this since my teen years and because of that, my lips are scarred and gross. This is the only DIY lip treatment that has ever worked to plump and soften my lips in just one treatment. So I’m sharing it with you guys!

🔮DIY Plumping and Moisturizing Lip Treatment

💗 Brown Sugar
💗 Extra Virgin Olive oil (organic)
💗 Honey (I used local)
💗 Cling Wrap
💗 Peppermint Oil
💗 Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm

🔮 Mix brown sugar, olive oil, honey and a few drops of peppermint. Scrub on your lips 3-5 minutes. Add a little more of the mixture to lips then apply a piece of cling wrap. Leave on for 10 minutes. (I added a napkin and a cloth surgical mask to increase warmth)

🔮 Remove scrub, apply thick layer of Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm then apply another piece of cling wrap leaving it on for 20 minutes. (This part was the hardest because I couldn’t sip on my tea for a whole 20 minutes!) #southerngirlproblems

🔮 After 20 minutes remove the cling wrap and massage the remaining lip balm into your now super soft, plump lips. 💕

Warnings: Biting, mention of blood.

A/N: This is a separate part of a Alpha!Brett imagine, it has nothing to do with the main imagine. And also; do I need to tell you who’s idea this is? Imma do it anyway, @lazyneonmonster

“I have no idea what to wear to this so called pack meeting.” You grunted loudly, sitting on your bed with your legs crossed as you shuffled among a pile of clothes. “I’ve never met any other wolves than you and Lori before and—“ you began and rose from the bed to approach Brett.

“It’s okay Y/N.” Brett cooed. “You don’t need to dress up for them.” He assured and you pouted with your bottom lip as he wrap his arm around your waist. “But I do want to look nice and I have nothing that looks good on me anymore.” You whined.

Brett scoffed as you sighed and buried your face into his chest. He tangled his fingers into your hair and you let out a relieved sound. “Do you know what’d look good on you Y/N?” he wondered and you backed away to look up at him, your eyes sparkling with hope.

Prep for the essential midnight smooch.

Kisses are spontaneous in nature. We love those random pecks during a preview at the movies or at a traffic light. But, there’s one smooch we can expect annually, on the dot—the New Year’s Eve midnight kiss. Thankfully, it’s one we can prepare for in advance. The Sephora Glossy’s tips for a smooth, soft pair of lips will guarantee your first word of the New Year is “muah!” JESSICA VELEZ


Why should only skin and hair be pampered with a treatment mask? Your lips are a vulnerable area, so it’s important to prep accordingly. We suggest using Kaplan MD’s Lip 20 Mask the night before to gently exfoliate, hydrate, and enhance lips. The formula is fluffy like buttercream frosting and smells like peppermint, so it won’t feel like a chore. Apply it with the adorable accompanying spatula and let the natural papaya enzymes do their work on flaky skin for three to five minutes.


Even though you gently exfoliated the night before, your lips may be exposed to devilishly cold winds throughout the day leading up to the evening festivities. In that case, get a heavier duty scrub on deck. GLAMGLOW’s PoutMud Treatment Duo comes with a pot chocked full of cane sugar, Hawaiian sea salt, and hibiscus flower. Follow up with the accompanying Wet Lip Balm for a hydrated base sweetened with Moroccan mint leaf oil.


If there’s any night to make your lips really stand out, it’s New Year’s Eve. Lancer’s Volume Enhancing Lip Serum is a beautiful way to help create a fuller looking pout. The secret ingredient is Sichuan Pepper extract which makes lips react by appearing more plump. Swipe it on for that extra boost, making sure to avoid the area outside your lip line.


Nude? Too demure. Berry? Not festive enough. A luscious cherry gloss will be, well, the cherry on top of this look. Fresh’s Cherry Shine Lip Treatment will draw the eye to your lips, isn’t sticky, and won’t look messy post smooch.


Okay, so you’ll have to actually wait until the stroke of midnight for this one, but it doesn’t hurt to get in a little practice, right?


Marilyn Monroe’s beauty tricks:

Makeup:                                                                                                               - 3 different shades of red lipstick (darker on the edges and lighter in the middle, created the illusion of bigger lips)                                                             - She used short false eyelashes (part of her iconic eye makeup)                       - Marilyn’s beauty mark was real - she had it naturally (but was almost the color of her skin tone) and all she did was enhance it with makeup

Exercise:                                                                                                             - Lifting five-pound weights (repeated it 15 times)                                                - An everyday run at the morning (20 mins)     

Eating:                                                                                                                 - Breakfast: warm milk, two raw eggs, a dash of sherry                                        - Lunch: broiled steak, salad                                                                                - Dinner: lamb chop, raw carrots                                                              - Snack: sandwich              

Skin Care:                                                                                                            - When not wearing makeup she would put olive oil on her face to protect her skin                                                                                                                       - Nivea moisturizing lotions, Erno Laszlo products, Regular Controlling Lotion

WHY DO ANTIS come up with a mediocre argument why xxx ship is bad, but when you bring down that argument with literal facts, they either come up with a 'creative' way to tell me to fuck off or just use their oppression card? Speaking from experience...

Hah, yeah, this happens to me a lot too - after a bit of back & forth, I get blocked or otherwise.

The core issue is that antis have already decided the following:

  • they’re right
  • their feelings* are the most important truth 
  • anyone who disagrees with them is wrong about everything
  • facts that don’t line up with their feelings must be lies

And from these principles extends all their behavior.

They’re right: antis are right because they have to be right. being wrong is impossible for them, because to be an anti is to be right.

this sounds sarcastic, but it’s not. antis operate on black and white principles: if someone is right, they are 100% right: if they are wrong even once, they are 100% wrong for the rest of eternity, and about literally everything. Therefore, to be an anti, one must always be right, or they doom themselves to being forever wrong.

This absolute rightness is maintained by considering their own feelings to be more important than the feelings or thoughts of anyone else.

their feelings are the most important truth: like being a shipper for a particular ship, being an anti-shipper of a particular ship is a personal opinion reached by a combination of feelings, experiences, and the individual’s read on canon. Antis who insist that nobody is allowed to ship something they don’t like have decided that their personal feelings about that ship has the same value as a universal truth. Because they dislike a ship, that ship is objectively bad.  And if you’re looking for reasons for something to be objectively bad you can usually find them, because most things aren’t absolutely flawless.

In general I don’t think this is a conscious process; it looks more like ‘I don’t really like this ship. There must be a reason I don’t like this ship.’ From this feeling of dislike flows all other reasoning.

anyone who disagrees with them is wrong about everything: the way black and white morality works is: if you do one thing wrong once, you are forever tarnished and all your future actions will be tarnished by your error. You must never make a mistake to remain wholesome and good.

Antis consider themselves to be good, so they must never make a mistake. by the same principle, anyone who doesn’t agree with them (in particular on shipping) has done something bad, so their words can never hold value again.

This kind of thinking allows antis to dismiss anything their opponents say as lies, nonsense, or even malicious attempts to hurt them.

Facts that don’t line up with their feelings must be lies: their feelings are always correct because antis don’t make mistakes. So if a fact doesn’t line up with their understanding of the world, it must be false, no matter how well-sourced or solidly backed the fact itself may be.**

All facts presented to them are checked against their personal experiences and feelings, and if the fact is found to not match, it is discarded.

They also consider the source. If the person presenting the information is someone they consider to be ‘bad’ - such as a person who ships things they don’t approve of - then the information itself is worthless.

This is why antis use their own feelings as a trump card in an argument, then flounce: you may present them with good information, and if they don’t like what you’ve said they trump it with ‘well it doesn’t match what I think/you are problematic, so you’re still wrong.’

You thought you were having a debate about reality, but actually you were debating with their feelings. Understandably, they can’t help taking it quite personally.

Everything I’ve described above are things everyone does to some degree. Antishippers just tend to take it to the extreme more than others. 

*You specifically mentioned ‘us[ing] their oppression card’, not their feelings, but the ‘oppression card’ is how tumblr specifically determines how important your feelings are. If you are white, straight, and cis, your feelings don’t matter at all; if you experience oppression on a given axis, your feelings increase in value. (Everywhere except tumblr this scale is exactly reversed. Also tumblr pays lip service to this treatment but it doesn’t mean oppressed people actually get better treatment or increased consideration on tumblr.) 

**sometimes ‘facts’ aren’t as true as we think because the source that processed the raw data to get to the fact was biased. Assuming that all facts are actually biased lies is how you get to ‘the most important thing is how I feel b/c it’s the only thing I can rely on to be trustworthy’ thinking.
