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.
