Karen's beauty stats: Busy beauty brand owner; constantly on the go; curly hair, highlighted; fair skin
"I always envied those supermodels on the runways with their lush, pillowy lips. After creating my own lip gloss, I learned how to get the perfect, juicy pout that is irresistible. The key is to keep lips moisturized, to use a fabulous, nonsticky lip plumper, and always apply the secret ingredient highlighter."
Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Cream
"This cream is meant for woman who are breast-feeding, but I use it as a lip balm (no kids for me yet!). It's more moisturizing and silkier than anything else out there. I apply it every morning and night, so my lips are always smooth."
PurpleLab's Huge Lips Skinny Hips Lip Gloss
"I love this plumping lip gloss (and not just because I created it). You can layer it on depending on how much color your want. When I'm running errands during the day, I apply one coat. When I have a business meeting, I add another one. And for evening, I kick it up to three. The more you put on, the juicier your lips look."
Chantecaille Aquablush in Radiance
"Highlighter can accent your best features. I use my pointer finger to dab this sheer gold one on the bow of the lip, which gives a beautiful, super-juicy look. (P.S. I'm coming out with my own highlighter in January; secret ingredients to be revealed in the new year.)"
