In case you haven’t heard what the rave is all about right now, it’s about your good old favorite cosmetic: lipsticks. Lip products offer the most convenient ways to swipe the look from office professional to a night out with the girls. But why have we limited the lipstick to just our lips? Here are all the ways you could be using your lipstick collection that has nothing to do with smothering the product onto your lips.
Long-Lasting Cream Blush
Starting with one that’s been tried and tested multiple times yet has always yielded positive results: double your lipstick as a cream blush for your cheeks. For all the different shades of lipstick you have lying around in your drawer, try slathering on a generous amount over your cheeks and blend using a stiffer brush for precise application.
Under Eye Concealer
Using red or orange lipstick as a concealer is the easiest way to hide the green and the blue that are resting under your eyes. Apply a small amount directly onto your dark circles and blend out the product. Give it a good minute before going in with your foundation, concealer, and setting powder. The results are almost instant!
Oh yes, this section is reserved for your favorite dark brown lipstick. This can easily double as your contour stick for making your face appear far slimmer. For application, you want to make the figure ‘3’ on either side of the face; start at the center of your forehead, then move down and slide straight beneath the cheekbone, and cover the sides where the face meets the chin. You want to blend all that with a stiff brush to bet that your jawline is naturally this sharp.
As A Highlight Stick
For those shimmery lipsticks lying around in your makeup drawer, swipe them in places you’d normally highlight, such as the cheekbones, cupid’s bow, eyebrow arch, tipoff the chin, and bridge of the nose. You’d be glowing for the gods!
