I don't know it if its just me, but there is nothing more infuriating then putting on a lipstick when your lips are peeling. For Christmas my cousins gave me a Lorac makeup set and it contained the super pigmented Girl Next Door (1495). The color is super pretty but not the most forgiving so I went onto pinterest to find a DIY scrub and a variation of this. I thought I would share it.
♡ Sugar (granulated or brown)
♡ Oil (olive or coconut)
♡ Food Coloring
Start of with an even number or sugar to oil ratio then add 2 drops of vanilla and desired food coloring (*I used dusty rose which is a 3:1 ratio of red and blue). The mixture might be a little liquify at this point so continue to add sugar until you get desired consistency and VIOLA there is your lip scrub. NOTE: this does create a very slight tint because of the food coloring so be warned.
I then just put it generously on my lips washed it off. Also this might be common knowledge but applying chapstick before you put on lipstick makes it look much smoother (I just figured this out..... I don't wear much lipstick).
