Forest Essentials Lip Scrub, 695 I love a red lip, but after a few hours, the inside colour disappears, and I’m left with a ring around my mouth...
Start by scrubbing your lips (try the Forest Essentials Lip Scrub,
695). Then use a red lip liner around and on your lips. Now apply your fave red lipstick and pat some loose powder over it. Blot lips with a tissue, and apply another layer of lipstick. Your colour will last all day!
My armpits look like burnt toast. What the heck can I do about the discolouration?
Dermatologist Ariel Ostad recommends products with alpha hydroxy acids or azelaic acid to lighten the darkness. Wash underarms with an exfoliating body wash like Iraya Balancing Sugar Body Polish, 695. Also use a deodorant that includes skinrenewing calendula.
How can I make my eyes stand out without all the drama of a smokey eye?
If you’re not feeling dark shadows, go for pretty metallics. Golds, coppers and bronzes bring out the warm undertones of eyes, making them look more open. A swipe of walnut brown liner on the top lid adds dimension without making it looking heavy.
