Twilight's Ashley Greene is a gorgeous, young actress. So, when she recently gave InStyle magazine a simple and cheap beauty tip, we took note.
And this little beauty item will not cost you more than $2, depending on where you live. And many of you, might already have one or several more of 'these' in your purse, nightstand, car, pocket, and so on.
We're talking about chapstick. The authentic brand, the name. And singer Katy Perry knows what we're talking about (wink-wink).
Yes, it's cherry chapstick. And you can find one at your favorite drugstore just about anywhere your travels take you. We just found them at Walgreens for $1.79, each. On sale, 2 for $3.
Ashley Greene says she has learned this clever beauty tip from the makeup pros:
"Line your lips with a pencil that’s the same shade as your natural lip color, then use Cherry Chapstick in the middle. You wind up with a natural reddish lip but it looks like you’re not wearing anything."
We like that cherry chapstick has an SPF of 4. We all need to protect our lips daily, and not just in the summer. Lips don't have enough melanin to protect us from the searing heat. Melanin is the natural skin pigment that filters out the strong and damaging UV rays. Lips are also thinner in skin structure, very sensitive, and lack protective oil glands, so protection is needed all year round.
Cherry chapstick not only provides a nourishing base, but also gives off a very natural, sheer rosy tint to lips, and that's the key to Ashley Greene's cheap cherry chapstick beauty tip.
A great tip! Thanks, Ashley.
