How to fix dry lips

makeuptips-:

I’m someone who has suffered dry lips for as long as I can remember and boy have they gotten bad. Some days I would wake up with dry, cracked, peeling and sometimes even bleeding lips, and no matter how many diet changes I made, how much water I drank nothing really helped, but after my years of beauty blogging I’ve come across a few amazing products and tips to help  get rid of dry lips and keep them in tip top condition…

I just want to take a break but life never stops moving. I try to see the light, my will, all of my goals to keep going but even at that sometimes I just need a day off. When those days come I have to use it to catch up because if I don’t, I end up falling behind even more.

ZOOM IN: BUMBLE AND BUMBLE PRÊT-À-POWDER

The second day of 2014 may catch you with second-day hair. Bumble to the rescue!

Picture it, year 2000: you got your first cell phone. You love boy bands. And your hair is painstakingly blown-out and flat-ironed to submission. Bumble and bumble was there to help prolong that look with their original Hair Powder, an oil-absorbing volumizer. “Dry shampoo had been around for quite a long time. When we launched our original Hair Powders, hair stylist Laurent Philippon was inspired by the traditional French hair powders. Back then, dry shampoos were a bottom-shelf item at drugstores and were nothing like what our stylists were looking for,” explains Tim Rush, Bumble and bumble’s Vice President of Global Communications and Fashion Relations. Here, how the haircare brand that started as a salon got to their latest and greatest hair powder launch, Prêt-à-Powder—available today. HOLLY SIEGEL

2000: Original Hair Powder
Available in four shades—white, red, brown, and black—this formula came in a plastic bottle that let you tap it directly onto roots (hence the shades) or in a poof of powder for dry-cleansing, grit, grip, and volume. “Exactly what you need if you want to create an updo or even a braid or ponytail,” adds Rush.

2006: Original Hair Powder in A Bit of Blondish
The brand heard the cries of the highlighted masses and created a fifth shade of original Hair Powder, A Bit of Blondish.

2006: Aerosol Hair Powders
“Turning our Hair Powder into an aerosol spray allowed for easier—and cleaner—use. And we’ve just launched our latest formulas, which include a little less pigment for more buildable, even, effortless application.”

2014: Prêt-à-Powder
“Prêt-à-Powder is equal parts dry shampoo, style extender, and volume in a pinch. It’s translucent, so provides an alternative for people who don’t want added color. We found that loose powders perform best for oil absorption, so we chose that format to create a perfect balance of all three benefits. It also uses our latest technology to create an incredibly finely milled formula that is nearly invisible in the hair. It’s great when you want to skip a shampoo to sleep in an extra few minutes.” He said it, not us.

SHOP BUMBLE & BUMBLE 

This product is also sold at Avalon Yaay! And it works really good, it’s like a dry shampoo but in a powder, perfect for late days that don’t give us girls enough time to wash our hair. Try it out!!

Holiday Look #10: Soft Swallow-Tail Cut Crease (MAC Steamy)
—
There were requests for a cut-crease look, so I decided to do one, but keep the “cut” very soft-focus and dreamy instead of too hard and severe.
It IS a more complicated look to do and took more products than usual, so click the pictorial image above to expand it and read instructions clearly. Not a look for you if you don’t have the time and patience for drama!
The key things that were critical to the velvety black intensity at the lash and socket line were a super intense and creamy black liner and a lip brush that I dabbed into dark navy blue powder shadow and used to smooth and even out the liner. 
—
Tools: I used 3 Loveybelle brushes in this look because of their specific shapes. Just look for similar shapes if you’re not able to get these!
Flat PUPA eyeshadow brush: Flat shadow brush for packing on eyeshadow over lids (available in Jan 2014)
PUPA blending eyeshadow brush: Pointed pencil-shaped buffing brush for applying color in tight areas
Lip Liner brush: a thinner and firmer synthetic brush that works well with creams and provides a lot of precision even while it blends

Products:
Concealer: MAC Studiofinish Concealer NW20
Setting powder: Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java
Brows: Shu Uemura Hard Formula 9 Pencil in Grey
Grey/beige highlight: MAC Vex (pale taupe-grey with pink shift)
Teal shadow: MAC Steamy (the best teal metallic, hands down; I prefer the consistency of this to alternatives like Urban Decay Shattered)
Satin/Matte dark navy shadow: “Roar” from Tarte’s Call of the Wild palette. (I used this because I have it. Don’t buy an entire palette just to get one shade! MAC Contrast is quite similar though more metallic.)
Black liner: Maybelline Master Drama in Midnight Drama (you really need something very, very intense and creamy; choose only a pencil like this or a gel liner in a pot) 
Red Cherry lashes #16


New Years look?!?! It’s an option.
