Lipstick Beauty Tricks

By Jenna

Admit it, you’ve always wanted to wear that new color of deep red lipstick but you’re afraid of it. You also may shy away from lip liner, because you think it’s not flattering. You have more than a few lipstick shades but don’t use them as often as you’d like to because you’ve grown tired of them. Or you just haven’t found a long lasting lipstick that you love. Perk up, because lucky for you, I’m going to give you the best beauty tips and beauty tricks for changing it up with lipstick.

There have been countless times where I find a really fabulous lipstick shade, take it home, put it on and then 5-10 minutes later it’s gone. MIA from my lips and it’s a total waste, and I have a hunch that I’m not the only one this has happened to. Instead of cursing at the sky about it, get out some blotting paper; you’re going to great your own lip stain. This works with just about any lipstick, and it’ll transform it from a dud into long lasting lipstick color that you’re free to enjoy down to the last application. Apply your lipstick like normal, take the blotting paper and blot away. Re-apply again, and then blot again to remove any excess oils. Use the lint-free blotting paper for a more natural look and feel free to apply for even a third time. Now enjoy how long it lasts. You’ll be wearing gorgeous color for a much longer amount of time that you’re hard earned lipstick promised to do.

It’s been a while since you’ve been out and your lipstick might be a little dull now. Or you’ve been out too many times wearing the same color and you want to change it up without spending a fortune on that new YSL lipstick shade. This trick will take any lip color and make it into a brand new shade guaranteed. Apply your lipstick color as usual. Remember your last Beautyfix kit? Take a sheer golden glossy shade like Colorescience’s Lip Candy Glaze in Butter Toffee to instantly turn that lipstick color into a gorgeous warm shade.

There’s always the scenario that you don’t want to or don’t know how to apply lip liner. It just so happens that this is the trick to make your lipstick last. Outline your lips in a neutral-pink color.  This is the perfect shade for ANYONE of any color to use. Instead of going to your lipstick, start filling in your lips, to create a base underneath. Apply your favorite lipstick shade and enjoy all day. This will prevent feathering, which is never in style. If you’re not sure about what perfect shade of pink lipstick you should refer to, all you need to do is open wide and smile. The best pink lipstick to match your skin tone and face is the same color as your gums.

All it takes is a little know-how and a few of the best beauty tricks from your favorite Beautyfix. Now go ahead you lipstick connoisseur, make her jealous and make him beg.
