Welcome to the all-new!

I diligently remove my makeup before bed no matter how tired I am. So when I woke up the next morning, I was surprised to see lipstick stains on my pillow. Since I was out the whole day, I just assumed that it was all gone by the time I got home since I didn’t see any color on my lips anymore.

But my eyes must’ve tricked me! Even though it looked like my pout was makeup-free, it really wasn’t! There was probably a light layer of pigment left and a little bit of product trapped in between the tiny lines on my mouth. The beauty lesson: Don’t forget to swipe your lips with a cottonball soaked in a little water-based makeup remover. This will help prevent the skin on your lips from darkening, getting dry, or chapped.
