Hi readers! Before we get into the details of today’s post, I want to mention some exciting news (if you haven’t heard it already). Last week, CoverGirl signed James Charles to be their first male ambassador. He is an incredible makeup artist with a huge following on Instagram and YouTube (seriously, go check him out), and while he isn’t the first to do so, he’s breaking gender norms like nobody’s business. This is an amazing and high-profile opportunity to encourage anyone who wants to wear makeup to go for it. I want to mention that while this series is titled Broke Girl Beauty, it doesn’t mean the guys can’t get in on it too. Makeup isn’t just for women; it’s an art form that anyone and everyone with an interest should partake in.
This past winter was really tough on my skin. Between freezing winds coming off the lake and the dry air, I was left with cracked, painful lips and flaky skin. I finally got my skincare routine down, but my lips were a little bit tougher to deal with. And on top of that, I thought the dead of winter would be a fine time to do a 30 Day Lipstick Challenge (post coming soon!) which beat my poor lips up even more.
So to make it up to my skin, I rounded up some of my favorite products and tricks to heal dry lips. Below are my favorites.
