Red nose

Think back to art class colour theory and apply the green shade from the MUA Pro Base Prime & Conceal Palette on to red patches and the yellow on dark circles.

Chapped lips

A blocked nose forces you to breathe through your mouth, which dries out your lips. Give them some much-needed moisture with the super-soothing Superdrug Lip Balm Menthol.
