10 Life-Changing Lipstick Hacks Every Makeup Beginner Must Know!
If there is any, one product to be asked that every girl loves from her makeup kit, it has to be hands down LIPSTICK! Girls are always guilty of getting over-indulged in either buying too many of them or using only a few pieces from the ones they buy. It is obviously important to figure out your undertones and which shade would look the best on you. But it is equally necessary to know all the ways you can put these unused lipsticks to use!
These 10 hacks will not let not let you waste your money on another one and help you achieve the perfect look with every single lipstick you own!
Use your lipstick as a cream blush
This works best if you need to look fresh in no time! Dot some lipstick on the apple of your cheeks and blend it with your fingers for a natural glowy finish.
Convert your cream lipstick to a matte finish
Convert any creamy lipstick to a matte finish by dusting some loose powder or compact powder over it. Place a thin tissue paper over your lips and dust the powder over your tissue. The powder will settle on the top of your lipstick making it matte.
Cotton buds to clean it up
If you have ended up applying some colour outside the lines then don't worry! Use a cotton bud with a concealer or makeup remover to clean mistakes you have made while application. You can also wrap a baby wipe around the cotton bud to clean it up.
Mix it up to fix it
Have you ended up buying a lipper that is a few shades lighter? Well, we all have done that mistake. Don't throw it away, simply apply that lipstick as a base and apply another favourite lip colour over it. With this, you can also create a custom shade for your skin tone!
Pretty brightened lips
If you have uneven pigmentation or dark lips then dot some foundation or concealer on your lips and blend it out. You can also use a white eyeliner pencil to get the same effect!
Keep lipstick away from your teeth
Does your lipstick always stain your teeth? There is an easy way to deal with this! Apply your lipstick and pout, then put your finger inside your mouth and pull it out. Voila! You will have all the extra lipstick on your finger now.
Convert any regular lipstick to a metallic finish
Love the metallic lip trend? Do not rush to buy a new lipstick, instead simply apply some highlighter or eyeshadow on top of your lipstick to give it a stunning metallic finish. After you apply your base lipstick, dab the shimmer on your lips, especially at the centre!
Make your lips appear bigger
The two easiest ways to make it appear fuller is to use a little bit gloss on the centre of your lips or always use a lip liner to overline your lips before applying any lipstick.
Fix broken lipstick
Broke your fav lipstick? Use a lighter to melt the broken park of your lipstick and then reattach it to the bullet. Easy isn't it? You can also take out all the lipstick from the bullet in a lip balm container. Then place it in the microwave for 10 seconds until it melts. You can now use your lipstick with a brush while applying it when you get ready.
Make your lipstick darker
Want your lipstick to have a darker colour pay off then simply mix it with a little black eyeliner before application. It is the easiest way to avoid spending money on a new dark lipstick.
