Treat your lips
Could your pout do with a little bit of tender loving care?

Then hot foot it to your closest posh beauty outlet and splurge on a super-luxe lip balm.

That’s the advice of top makeup artist Adam Burrell, who says soft and supple lips are key to achieving a flawless face.

“As a makeup artist I use lip balm as part of every single makeup application and it’s the luxury brands that get the most love and attention without the person even knowing the brand or price,” Adam told Cover Media.

“The best lip balms contain the best ingredients so they always feel great with long-lasting effects.

“Some cheaper lip balms are actually quite drying which is why you might find yourself having to keep reapplying.”

Here are Adam’s top tips for luxe lips.
