Cosmo answers your burning beauty questions—in 20 words or less!
Lipstick makes my lips dry, but applying lip balm first makes the colour fade quickly. What should I do?
Try a dual-action lipstick, like Revlon’s. It gives lips a pop of colour, while hydrating them as a balm would.
How can I prevent concealer from settling into the fine lines around my eyes?
Use primer (in place of lotion) first. It fills creases so make-up stays propped on the skin’s surface.
Salon gel manis have ruined my nails. Are the new drugstore ‘gel polishes’ any gentler?
It’s not the formula that’s damaging but how it’s removed. Most DIY gels dissolved with acetone—ideal for chronic peelers.
