Dry and cracked lips when neglected can spoil your look and hurt as well. Like the skin, the lips needs regular moistening and gentle care. There are few must dos to prevent your lips from chapping and to have luscious lips with colour that stays intact the whole day.
Moisturise your lips well. Drink plenty of water to keep the lips moistened, soft and supple.
Apply quality lip balm rich in vitamin E before going to bed every night or frequently through the day. Coco butter or almond oil mixed with butter can treat dry and chapped lips.
Blot the lips with a tissue paper to suck extra oil of the balm.
Remove dead skin from your lips with extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of sugar in it. Rub the oil on your lips tenderly. It is an effective lip cleanser and scrubber to rid of dry and dead skin from the lip surface.
Put a light concealer on to generate a seamless base for your lip colour to stay long with its real hue.
Outline the lips with a sharpened lip liner with shade that blends with your lipstick in reverse direction.
Fill your lip space with it before applying lipstick.
Always use the finest quality lipstick with a fine brush.
Open your lips slightly and fuse a thick layer of the same lipstick onto the lips and in the inner corners.
Place a thin tissue paper over your lips and matt down your lip colour by pressing powder to go through to the lips and set your lip colour in place.
Spread on the last coat on your lips to give the final glossy veneer.
These steps will help prevent your lips from chapping and give you the desired soft and gorgeous looking lips.
