Lipstick hacks every girl must know

Now we come to the most interesting section!

Who doesn’t wish to know a few tricks that’ll make things a little easier, faster and better? So, here I bring to you, some of the quick DIY lipstick hacks, that’ll change the make- up game for you. Let’s begin!

  • Any satin finish lipstick can be turned into a matte one, by just keeping a tissue paper over your lips (after putting on the lipstick, of course!) and dusting some baby powder over it.
  • Most of us have pigmented lips, so always pat some concealer over them, especially before a nude lipstick. This evens out the pigmentation and makes your lip shade pop!
  • Whenever confused about choosing a nude lip color, go for a shade that is 1 to 2 tones darker than your skin color. Also, fair toned girls should preferably go with pinkish nudes, medium skinned beauties with peachy nudes and dusky tones angels with brownish nudes! Sorted?
  • Broke your lipstick bullet? There’s no need to freak out babe! Just melt both the ends with the help of a lighter and then keep them together until completely dry. Simple!
  • If you wish to make your lips appear larger or luscious, try applying a concealer or highlighter in the centre of your lips, just over the lipstick you’ve applied. You can also go for a lip shade that is 3-4 shades lighter than the one you’ve applied.
  • If you own a lipstick that tends to feather or bleed after application, all you’re got to do to fix this, is apply a primer at the periphery of your lips.
  • Any bold and bright lipstick shade can be muted down for a more casual look, by just applying a clear gloss over it.

So, finally we come to an end of this “MAC-licious” article. Hope you enjoyed it thoroughly, and found it pretty informative as well. We’ll come up with another super-engaging topic, really soon. Until then, keep loving and pampering yourself!
