As I have mentioned a couple of times before, great make up starts with good skin. The harshness of the winter weather may make your skin dull and dry, so here are some moisture-rich DIY masks that you can try at home that will surely make your skin ready for the new year!
DIY WINTER BEAUTY MASKS

Sweet Brown Sugar Lip Scrub
Winter can leave your lips dry and chapped so one of the best ways to keep your lips looking lovely is to regularly use a lip scrub.

Mix these two together until the sugar becomes moist. The hydrating properties of olive oil as well s the exfoliating nature of brown sugar will help remove the dead skin cells as well as providing hydration. After scrubbing your lips, apply liberal amounts of lip balm to keep your pucker smooth, soft and kissable. Use this mixture at least twice a week.
