8 Awesome Ways To Utilize Your Lipstick

A lipstick is something you would find in every woman’s makeup purse, this is even the case for women who claim they do not love makeup. This essential makeup product can be a chore sometimes when the application, durability or storage goes wrong.

To rectify that, we have created a list of 8 awesome ways to achieve the effect you want with your makeup product to ensure that you use it to the max.

8 Awesome Ways To Utilize Your Lipstick;

Apply a clear makeup primer around the perimeter of your mouth 

Do this before you put on your lipstick to keep it from feathering.

Perfect your Cupid’s bow by drawing an “X”  on the center of your upper lip 

This is highly recommended, after the X, fully line and fill in the rest of your lips. Another bonus, if it starts to wear off, it will do so evenly, and you won’t have that tell-tale ring of lip liner around your mouth.

Make your lips pop by lining the outside of your lips with cover-up and a concealer brush

I have tried this and I have witnessed this. When done properly this would be your holy grail to lipstick application.

Blot the right way

Blot between applications to make your lip color last longer. It removes excess oil on your lips from the first application and gives the second application a better grip on your lips.

Set lipstick for lasting power.
To make your lipstick last all day, apply the shade, blot with a tissue, and dust a thin layer of powder over lips. Next, reapply and this will form a base for longer wearing lip coverage. This is a quick matte fix.

Do the finger trick.

After applying your lip color, put your finger in your mouth and close your lips around your finger. With lips still closed, pull your finger out. Any lip product that would have ended up on your teeth would transfer to your finger.

Store your lipstick in the fridge

This would save your lipstick from melting when it is warm.
