The Key To Lush Lipcolor

Lipstick looks terrible on lips cracked by cold and wind. So before bed, smooth them by mixing sugar with olive oil and rubbing it on your mouth. Wash that off and then apply a petrolatum-based balm like Aquaphor. In the morning, use just a tinted lip balm. For more color, layer a creamy lipstick on top. Avoid formulas with shimmer, which accentuate crepiness, and liquid stains, which aggravate dryness.
