Like your facial skin your lips need some TLC. While exfoliating, we must take care of our lips. All you need is to exfoliate your lips every night with a bit of sugar and your toothbrush. Dampen your toothbrush and with the help of it rub sugar on your lips. Apply your favorite lip balm and leave it over night. You will find them soft and pink in the morning. Scrubbing your lips with sugar helps in removing dead skin and applying your lip balm hydrates them.

Before we apply makeup to face, we need to prepare a base for the makeup to last long; similarly we need to apply concealer as foundation before applying lipstick. It helps the color to stick and maintain that color. For a lasting effect and an even color, use a waterproof concealer.
