Lipstick tips and tricks
by Kathy Gámez
Hey Girls do you wanna know some quick tricks and tips for your lipsticks and for you?
here there are:
Store lipstick in the fridge. It will last weeks longer.
NEVER use a tester on your lips. It’s just plain unhygienic. Instead, test lipstick on your fingertips. It’s a closer fit to your lips than the back of your hand.
Use liner on your lips as a base. Lipstick will last longer if you fill in your lips with the liner first. If you’re using light lipstick, try a nude liner. Then slick your lipstick on top.
Don’t skip the liner. Without the prerequisite liner, your lips will look “smudgier” according to Berg, softer & less defined.
Lipstick can act as a blush. But never use blush as a lipstick.
Don’t throw out a bad color lipstick. Beauty editors know you can create a great lipcolor by combining lipsticks you don’t like. You can also color in lips with a darker liner before applying a lipstick that’s too bright.
For ‘plump’ lips, apply liner just outside your natural lipline.
Keep lip gloss on longer with liner. Lip gloss is infamous for wearing off fast, but if you fill in lips first with the liner, the gloss has something to stick to.
Don’t throw out a broken lipstick. If your lipstick breaks off, simply take off the broken portion with a tissue, then slowly wave a lit match under the broken piece of lipstick. When it’s melted a bit, put it back on the base, and put it in the fridge for 5 minutes.
Avoid orange or brown shades. They tend to make teeth appear yellow.
Save the last bits. Down to the last bit of you favorite lipstick? There’s plenty more at the bottom of your tube. Scrape out the last bits with a cotton swap or orange stick & mix it with Vaseline or lip gloss in a lipstick palette.
I hope you like it and apply it, let me know if you do.
