. If the lips are too dry or cracked, which is very common during winter, you need to repair the surface first, and then protected. The regular lip balm won’t be enough, so you have to use natural ingredients, strong nourishing. Apply many times a day honey, fat butter, olive oil or almond oil. Cracked lips may be the result of body dehydration, so include in your diet many fruit and drink a lot of water.
Now your lips are velvety, because you’ve used natural treatments, but it’s not enough. The protecting stage is about using moisturizing balms that you apply several times during the day. The evenings, wipe the lips with a slice of cucumber or a lemon slice, and then apply a product especially for night action.
Because they don’t contain moisturizing agents, the matte lipsticks must be avoided during the winter. You can use a creamy, moisturizing lipstick, even one with vitamins. But don’t forget to use a protective balm before. Apply the lipstick with a special brush, begin with the centre and finish as exactly as you can the corners.
If your lips are thin, use light natural colors for your lipstick, and complete it with a clear gloss that you apply only in the middle of the lips. Dark nuances only make the lips look thinner. Also, there are lip glosses that increase visually the volume of the lips.
If your lips are asymmetrical, choose pink nuances or nude colors, while avoiding lip outliner crayons that draw attention to the outline of the lips.
If your lips are thick, choose a color according to your eye color and hair color that will expose your lip beauty. Natural colors and lip gloss reduce visually the width, unlike strong colors.
To eliminate excessive lipstick and avoid teeth tainting, easily touch a napkin with your lips. If you want the color to be intense all day, apply some clear gloss or pale pink in the middle of your lips.
