There is nothing worse than the cold wind blasting you, messing up your hair and leaving your lips cracked and dry. Without the hot weather to remind us to drink, dry lips are almost guaranteed in winter.
A good lip balm is always a handbag staple and absolutely essential in the colder months. You really need one in every bag you own so you never have an excuse for chapped lips.
To start off with, give your lips a little exfoliation, get rid of all the dead skin and start off fresh before applying any moisturising products. When you’re moisturising in the morning don’t forget about your lips! Let the balm/moisturiser sink in before applying colour, it also helps the colour last longer.
TOP TIP: Apply lip balm before washing your face – this is a great way to keep the moisture locked in.
With the constant application of lip balm needed in winter, one in a small and convenient package is a win for us. Revo Lip Balm is the perfect choice. It comes in a secure twist top so it won’t leak sticky lip balm all over your bag. The conditioning natural oils, moisturising aloe and antioxidant Vitamin E that will keep your lips looking and feeling soft and smooth all day.
The cherry flavour is our choice at the moment – it’s so yummy you’ll want to lick your lips all day (they taste as good as they look!) If cherry ain’t your flavour, they’re also available in coconut, strawberry and watermelon - Delish!
With matte lips on-trend and looking to stay, you need to be sure you take care of them in between uses, and pop on a balm before bed. Take a break from drying lipsticks and try a moisturising lipstick or balm instead, your lips will thank you.
If you still want a bit of colour (one that isn’t blue from the cold) after applying balm, pop on your favourite lipstick or lip stain (maybe a dark red or plum, perfect shades for winter). Use the Real Techniques Lip Colour + Blur brushes to create the ultimate lip styles. This life-changing duo can be used with lipsticks, lip stains or glosses. The choice is yours.
Start with the Lip Brush to create the perfect precision lines for truly defined and stand out lips, applying colour all over the lips (over line slightly if you want larger than life lips). Then take the Lip Blur brush to create a soft focus look to blur harsh and streaky lines. Lock it in with a little balm over the top to protect the colour and lips.
One last thing – don’t forget to always apply sunscreen to your lips; the winter sun can surprise you, so stay sun safe and moisturised beauties!
