Lipstick is just like a beauty goddess for every woman! And I’m sure it’s been used by most of us. We all have tonnes of shades already, and yet we keep on buying more and more lipsticks.

a) Apply the nude matte lipstick first.
b) Now apply the lipstick of your choice.
c) Now apply your matte nude shade lipstick again. Make sure your lip colour looks even from everywhere.
d) Apply more dark lipstick or a nude lipstick, according to your desired colour.
3. The Concealer Trick
If you’re applying a dark red lipstick/maroon lipstick, use a concealer near your lip area and blend it really well. I’m sure you don’t want to look like a blood sucking vampire! After blending, if you feel it’s looking too white, you can always use a bronzer or a dark compact to cover the area. Now use a lip liner and then throw in your dark lipstick, this way your lipstick will pop out real loud and trust me, it looks beautiful!

4. For The Undying Love of Mattes
As matte lipsticks are hitting the trend, there are still many favourite lipstick shades that you always wished were matte? This trick will make any lipstick turn into a perfect matte lipstick! Steps:-
a) Apply 2-3 coats of your lipstick as it will become a tone lighter eventually.
b) Now dab a thin tissue paper on your lips, let it stick to your lips.
c) Use the baby powder with a brush and use it on your lips without removing the tissue.
d) Now remove the tissue paper and your lips will look matte!
5. Don’t Stain Your Teeth
After applying your lipstick, just put a finger in your mouth and make an ‘O’ through your lips. Make sure your lips are touching your finger from the inside of the mouth, as you don’t want to mess with the lipstick from the outside. This way excess lipstick which is inside the lips will come on your finger and your teeth will be stain-free (don’t forget to wash your finger).
Hope these small lipstick hacks brings in a major change in your life.
