What's one thing all models have in common when it comes to New York Fashion Week? Chapped lips.

It's the one inevitable downside when it comes to being exposed to below-freezing weather. Wondering how and why their lips can look so smooth while strutting their stuff on the runway? MAC Lip Conditioner. According to Fatima Thomas, Senior Artist at MAC, and Kalena Lorrain Chavez, Regional Trainer and Educator at MAC, this small squeezable bottle is a godsend.

"Everybody's lips are peeling and flaky right now. I have it in my car, in my bag and in my kit," said Kalena. "I put it on and just let it soak in." Depending on the makeup look you need to achieve, "I dab some off for a more touchable lip, leave it on for a juicier lip or take it all off if it's a matte lip."

Pro tip: If your lips need something a little extra to help shake off the cold, all you need is sugar. "I'll just grab a little pack of sugar off the catering table and mix a little into the conditioner. Wipe it off with a wipe and…baby lips," noted Fatima.
