red lip ready

I love wearing lipstick. I am normally a red color kind of girl but during the summer I will play with coral and in the fall I love a great mauve or burgundy. Lately, though, I have noticed that after I put on my lipstick, it doesn't look as nice. This nippy weather has been chapping my lips.

Although one way to prevent this is to keep your lips hydrated, you also need to exfoliate to get rid of any dead skin cells. Even better? You don't even have to leave your kitchen.


1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. honey
2 tsp. white granulated sugar
a squirt of lemon juice

Mix the ingredients together to create a paste. Use your finger to rub all over lips in a circular motion. Be sure to get the outer edges of your lips as well as the corners.

And now you are red lip ready!
