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.
