Beauty Quickie: There is no way to hide chapped lips once they have reared their ugly head. The flaking can be seen regardless of how much lipstick or lip gloss you layer on top. Prevention is the best way to resolve this very common beauty issue. Cold weather pulls the moisture out of your lips; therefore, you need a barrier between your skin and the outside elements in order to prevent dryness. Applying a good lip balm will help lips stay hydrated thus eliminating any chapping.
Makeup Bonus: Some lipstick formulas can be quite drying and when coupled with dry winter climates can take the luster right out of your pout. Always apply lip balm or Vaseline to your lips before lip liner or lipstick to keep lips soft and kissable.
