THE ULTIMATE
LIP SAVIOUR

With clients including Nicole Kidman and Anne Hathaway, A-list make-up artist Kay Montano reveals how she keeps the stars’ pouts in peak condition

Too much sun – or cold – can really dry out the lips, which is why I’m never without Rêve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm from cult French pharmacy brand Nuxe. I first discovered this balm on a Ralph Lauren job, when the model (who suffered from sore lips) insisted I use this first – and I’ve gone on to use it on pretty much every client since. Packed with shea butter and honey, it has a unique consistency and real staying power, making it a great overnight treatment as well as a holiday-season saviour. The other bonus is the formula’s matt finish, which works well in photos and looks less dated than gloss. Without a doubt, the perfect lip balm.
