One of my favorite things about winter is sugar lips.
I love seeing the boys with a fresh coating of snow outlining their mouths.
It looks like they’ve just taken a bite out of a sugar donut.
Or stuck their head in a bowl of powdered sugar, sneezed and came out with a magnificent work of art covering their entire face and chest.
In case you’re wondering how you too can make sweet sugar lips, it’s quite easy but here’s a step by step guide that you can follow:
Supplies that you’ll need:
- Backyard covered in snow
- Semi-wet mush.
- Walk outside into your backyard that is covered in fresh fallen snow.
- Give your lips a good lick
- Lightly dunk your head into a snow pile
- Lift your head up and look deep into your owner’s eyes
For a more dramatic effect, take a drink of fresh water before you got outside, be messy about it and let it drip down your chest. Find a deep pile of fresh fallen snow to lay down in, submerge your head and part of your chest in the fresh snow for 2.5 seconds, slowly lift your head and smile.
That’s it! It’s that easy to make sugar lips right in the comfort of your own backyard!
**Please note that effects may vary depending on your snow. Freshly fallen fluffy snow usually yields the best results but if you have stale snow that’s been around for a few days that will work too. Just try to remove the top layer with your paw and get to the fluffy stuff. As always please stay away from using yellow snow to make sugar lips. This results in more of a lemon donut look and that’s not the look we’re trying to achieve here. It will also result in less kisses from your owners.
