As the genteel wordsmith Tommy Lee once said; “Just because we wear lipstick doesn’t mean we can’t kick your ass”. After months of indoor heating, blistering winds and general pout-negligence, my lips are far from kick-ass though and nothing shows this up like a lashing of lippie. Forking out on perfect puckers is for suckers when DIY lipcare is so damn easy to make. Here’s my pick of the best lipcare tutorials for the great unkissed. Mwah.
Giving my lips a quick rub with your toothbrush after you’ve brushed your teeth is my favourite trick for exfoliating but sugar scrubs are way more fun/delicious. Check out these tutorials for proof.

How many lip balms do you have in your handbag? Way too many? Now imagine if you had a lip balm factory in your kitchen making balms just for you. Yeah, we’re gonna need a bigger bag.
Again, it’s not that I don’t have enough lip glosses, it’s that I can never have enough. Make them myself? Yes please.
