Many of my clients complain about liquid lipsticks. I love the longevity of liquid lipsticks, but the cracking, dryness and peeling are real. What to do? I always start with a thick application of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream to the lips before I start a makeup - I let it really soak in. For extra dry lips, I use a toothbrush and gently rub the lips to exfoliate dead skin and flakes. I apply the liquid lipstick to clean dry lips and let it dry. If my client's lips start to peel or crack, I tell her to use a small amount of non greasy lip balm like Drunk Elephant Lippie Balm to smooth the lip color out. My favorite brands of liquid lips are Kat Von D and Dior.
