An unexpected meeting came up but you just about managed to haul yourself out of bed and to work, forget being prepared for it! Keep calm cause I’ve got you covered! A tinted lip balm for a nourishing soft pink stain, a swipe of mascara and a cream blush for a hint of color on the cheeks are my staples for these unanticipated situations! Sport this trendy flushed no-makeup makeup look and sail through your meeting with ease! Sun damage and pollution can leave your lips feeling extremely dry and flaky by the end of the day and on top of that applying a liquid lipstick is just going to make it worse! A DIY scrub made with coconut oil, honey and sugar, a recipe handed down to me by my grandmother is the absolute healer!
