If You’re In Need Of Nourishment
This bestselling balm is our go-to when the cold, windy weather has taken its toll on our lips and they’re feeling dry, chapped and sore. With omega-3 fatty acids, shea butter and vitamin E, lips feel softer and smoother within days, even with prolonged mask wear.
IT CosmeticsPillow Lips Lipstick, £12.60
If You Want Lip Plumping Colour
There are few lipsticks we’d bother applying these days if we know we’ll be wearing a mask, but this is one of them. The trio of jojoba, peppermint and sesame seed oils gives lips a burst of moisture and subtly plump, disguising any fine lines, while the highly pigmented formula offers impressive pay-off. Opt for the matte finish for longer-lasting wear, and if you want extra insurance mist Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray on top.
By TerryBaume de Rose Lip Care, £32.00
For Multiple Benefits
An iconic beauty product; it’s as renowned for its delicate rose scent as it is its nourishing benefits. A swipe of the vitamin E enriched balm across your lips will leave them feeling softer and smoother almost immediately. We also use it across our cheek and brow bones to impart a subtle iridescent sheen when we don’t have a highlighter to hand.
Laura MercierLongwear Lip Liner, £13.50
If You Want Long Wearing Colour
Outlining and filling in your lips with a liner before you apply your lipstick can seriously extend its longevity. We couldn’t be without Laura Mercier’s formula as it lives up to its name without drying out our lips. Our top tip is to opt for a shade that’s closest to your natural lip colour.
