Best Kind of Lip Blam

Another kind of balm that works better than 90% of all lip balm brands out there are the ones containing Aloe vera. Aloe vera is a natural treatment that heals the skin and helps against cracked lips, blisters and wounds.

Almond and e-vitamin are the things you should look for in great lip balms. They have a long-term, healing effect.

Chapped lips – If your lips are chapped you should exfoliate them, apply petroleum jelly or a face scrub to a soft toothbrush and gently rub on lips. Always apply lip balm.

Always apply a treatment balm before you apply the lipstick: it will make your lips look finer, softer. In order to give more volume to your lips, apply over the lipstick, in the middle of the upper lip, transparent or a little naked lip gloss.

To sop up oil and refresh makeup, lightly mist your face with toner, then pat with a tissue. Finish with a dusting of loose powder.

60 Seconds for Nails

60-second strategy: Remove all polish, clean under your nails (with lemon juice, if you have it), and massage the thickest lotion you can find (lip balm will suffice in a pinch) into your cuticles.

Bold Eyebrows?

Overzealous tweezing can lead to emaciated brows and bald patches, where hair only grows back irregularly. Use a protein-spiked brow gel to stimulate healthy growth and brow fillers to shade in problem areas.

Don’t be caught in the cold!

Sure, it’s chilly in your bathroom in the morning, but don’t be tempted to crank up the heat in the shower. Hot water followed by cool, dry air leads to rough skin. To lock in moisture post-shower, pat — don’t rub — yourself dry, and coat skin in a thick alpha-hydroxy lotion.

Not Enough Sleep?

Trying to look well rested when you aren’t? Avoid piling on the foundation. Use a tinted moisturizer instead, followed by a beige eye pencil — it counteracts any redness around your eyes.

Liquid Liner

Keep your eyes open when applying liquid liner — otherwise your line will look uneven. Apply by drawing three dashes, one on the corner, one in the middle, and one on the inside corner of your eye. Then go back and connect the dashes for a smooth line.
