Use Chapstick As a Budget Lip Primer

I have a small beauty tip. With the new red lipstick trend that has become all-the-rage on and off the red carpet, chapstick is a great, inexpensive way to keep the color from flaking and fading. The chapstick acts as a primer for your lips and keeps them looking luscious. Just apply a little chap stick 5-10 minutes before your lipstick and you’re set, literally! You can get cherry chapstick for about 99 cents at any drugstore or even the supermarket. So you never have to worry that your new, bold statement is letting you down.
