The new formula long-lasting lipsticks that really stain lips are best avoided. They are hard to apply perfectly, will emphasize the shape and size of your lips and show every lip line that has formed around the mouth. Best to stick to neutral gloss and nude tints, which will make the most of what you have.
Never leave the house with a tiny split or tear in your nails, as it is bound to develop into a ripped or broken nail with time. Use an over-the-counter nail-mender kit and apply a tiny strip of fibrous paper over the split before painting nail-mending liquid onto it and covering with polish.
