Summer time is around the corner, and for every lady who likes fashion its time to put your swag on! If you’re fashion conscious, it’s time to swap out those vampy hues in exchange for colours that compliment the beautiful and melanin-rich skin.Just because you were born with brown lips doesn’t mean you can never have pink lips.

#1.  Fixing a broken lipstick

We’ve all had the unfortunate experience of having our lipstick snap into two right?!

No worries ladies. You can fix this by holding the two broken halves together over a candle flame. Once it fuses, put in the fridge for some hours and you’ve got a whole lipstick again.
