Hi there darlings!
Isn’t it a beautiful day to feel beautiful?! Lately I have been experimenting with lipstick tricks and I’m finally starting to get the hang of it. I might not be a professional make-up artist, but I sure do love to experiment!
1. Make any Lipstick Long-Lasting
After applying a coat of lipstick, blot it with a tissue. Then use a large eye shadow brush to dust the lips with some translucent powder and apply another layer of lipstick. Repeat twice for the best results. For extra impact: replace the translucent powder for a shimmering powder (such as eyeshadow) to sparkle all day!
2. Same Lipstick, New Color
An unexpected lip gloss can give your favorite lipstick a completely new look each season. Experiment with color combinations and you might be surprised by the results! I love to use my baby pink YSL lipstick in combination with a bight fuchsia for Spring/Summer, while I combine it with a dark purple lip gloss for Autmn/Winter.
3. No more Lipstick Stains!
4. DIY Lipstick with Eyeshadow
Do you have an eyeshadow color which you think would just be amazing as a lipstick? Go DIY-Style and mix-up the eyeshadow with some Vaseline, and voila! You got yourself a new lip gloss. Even better: buy a lipstick sample box and create your own color-palette!
5. Subtle Lipstick
Do you love your bright lipstick colors but do you think they are somewhat too intense to wear with a casual look? Make them more natural by only applying the lipstick at the center of your lips and blending it out with your fingertips.
6. Bye bye smudged lipstick!
Having your lipstick smudging over your natural lip line is the worst, isn’t it? Try these two steps: apply a clear lip liner at your natural lip lines as a prevention. After applying your lipstick use a thin brush with concealer to fix any mistake (trying to wipe it off with a tissue will only make it worse!)
7. First apply lipstick, then lip liner
Usually people first start with applying their lip liner before filling in their lips with lipstick. However, I’ve noticed that my lips look much more natural when I first apply the lipstick and then the lip liner. The lines become softer and blend in better with the color… give it a try!
