Natural Rosy Glow

Motives Stippling Brush

Are you looking for a natural rosy glow? This Motives Stippling Brush is the perfect brush to achieve it! It’s actually very airy on the tips, so because of that you will be placing a fine amount of blush which will be easy to blend. Dip the stippling brush in your blush and swirl in circles layering the color until you have just the right amount.

The Perfect Glow

Motives Fan Brush

Are you looking for the perfect glow? A fan brush is my go to brush for highlighters, but also shimmer blushes. Apply by sweeping up on the high point of your cheekbones. It will deposit just enough product, without over doing it.

A Classic Look

Motives Blush Brush

This brush most likely is the most popular to use for applying blush. Make sure that you hold your blush brush at the very tip. Lightly swirl your chosen blush on the apples of your cheeks and sweep up towards your hairline.

Pop of Color

The Motives Contour Brush has denser bristles therefore will deposit more color onto your skin. It’s perfect for a pop of color and more bold looks. Apply by sweeping up from your apples of your cheeks angled towards your ear.

Lip Mask

Now that you exfoliated, it’s time for a lip mask! I think we’re all familiar with  face masks—whether you’re into exfoliating masks, hydrating masks, or maybe a combination of the two, masking is a vital step in any woman’s skin care routine. But there’s another crucial step that you might be missing: lip masks.

If you’re like most women, you’re probably wondering what is a lip mask? That’s completely understandable because lip masks are a newcomer to the beauty scene, but I assure you that they are something you don’t want to miss out on!

ARE LIP MASKS ACTUALLY A THING?

Yes, they sure are. And, WOW, I am grateful! Lip masks are a simple way to keep your lips soft and smooth-and doesn’t everyone want soft, Lucious lips?  Once you try them, you’ll know exactly what I mean!

Motives® MUAH Vanilla Lip Mask

I am in LOVE with the Motives® MUAH Vanilla Lip Mask, it’s a leave on lip treatment that seals in moisture and smooths for the perfect pout. This silky lip mask is infused with shea butter for effortless nourishment while emollients smooth for ultimate suppleness, and the sweetly subtle taste of vanilla is the cherry on top. This versatile treatment can be applied under your favorite Motives lip color or as an overnight lip mask.

How do I use Motives MUAH Vanilla Lip Mask?
Motives MUAH Vanilla Lip Mask can be used as an overnight mask or as a daily treatment.
  • Overnight Mask: Apply the mask generously to cleansed, exfoliated lips before bed. We recommend exfoliating with Motives MUAH Vanilla Lip Scrub.
  • Daily Treatment: Apply to lips and gently massage until fully absorbed.

Yes! Motives MUAH Vanilla Lip Mask can be used as an everyday lip treatment that is worn underneath your favorite lip color. Additional touch-ups to your lip color may be needed throughout the day, as the creamy base leaves your lips so smooth and moisturized!
How often should I apply Motives MUAH Vanilla Lip Mask?
