7 Everyday Lipstick Hacks You Need To Know!
How many times do you give up on a great outfit just because you don't have the right lipstick? Or you avoid applying lipstick because your lips have a layer of dead skin harder than a concrete road? Well, worry no more; we at TBD are here with some amazing hacks that will help you carry that lipstick like a boss!
For Even Toned Long-Lasting Lips
Don't you all hate it when your lipstick doesn't turn out to look as perfect as it did when you planned your whole look? We hate it too. So, before you put on your favorite lip color, apply foundation or concealer on your lips to even out your lips. Oh, and it helps the lipstick last longer. Now that's a win-win!
For Long Lasting Matte Lips
Now, before we get started, you better grab your tools; or in this case a fluffy makeup brush, translucent powder, and a tissue paper. Yes, that's all you need. Most of the tissue papers are layered; so, make sure to use a single layer and place it on your lips. Get some translucent powder on the brush and gently pat it on your lips with the tissue on. Make sure you're exhaling through your mouth while applying the powder; you wouldn't want that powder in your mouth now, would you?
A Perfect Hack For Beginners
Smudged lipstick? Don't worry; we have a hack for you too. All you need is a flat brush and some concealer. Use the brush to apply concealer on the smudged areas; then, gently blend it with either your fingers or a brush. Make sure to blend it well to avoid patchy skin. Once you're done, you get perfect bow-shaped lips.
Dry Lips? Not Anymore
Before throwing your old toothbrush out, let's put it to use one last time. Apply a generous amount of lip balm on your lips and gently rub the toothbrush in a circular motion on your lips. Continue this process for a minute or two. Once you're done, use a tissue paper to get rid of the dead skin. Voila! Lipstick hack turned to a life hack.
Gradient Lips Made Easy
This hack is going to make your life so much easier. Say you've got your lipstick on; all you need is a lip pencil which is lighter than your lip color. Apply the lip pencil in the centre of your lips, top and bottom. Once you do that, all you have to do it press your lips together to smoothen it out. You will be amazed by the result!
You Need Not Get Rid Of That Little Bit Of Lipstick Left
Tiny bit of lipstick left? Don't throw it away just yet. All you're going to need is a spatula, a teaspoon, a candle and a contact lens case or any other small container you have. First of all, scoop out the remains of the lipstick and place it on the spoon; then place the spoon over the flame on the candle. This will melt your lipstick and will make it easier for you to pour it into the lens case or the container. Let it set for a while and then your lipstick is as good as new.
Mix And Match!
Remember to always keep a lighter shade of lipstick handy. This lighter shade could be a nude brown or a shade of pink. Since dark lipsticks in the day are a no-go, you can always save the day with your lighter shade. Apply the lighter shade on your already colored lips to sober your look down; that is, if you find your lips a little too dark for your look. You can also use two different shades of lipstick to make one amazing color. That way, you won't need 50 shades of lipsticks; just the basic colors will save your day.
