7 Genius lipstick tricks

Find Your Perfect Pink

Unsure of which pink is best for you? Just smile; your perfect shade is about the same color as your gums - no lighter. 

Make Lipstick Last

To keep your color in place, fill the entire lip with neutral pencil before applying lipstick. If necessary, roll the tip in the palm of your hand to warm it up and prevent hard lines. 

Create a Custom Shade

Turn any lip color into a shimmery new shade. Swipe sheer golden gloss over lipstick - it instantly warms up every color. 

Shape Lips Sans Liner

Give the illusion of two perfect peaks without lining lips: Just dab concealer in the groove at the center of your upper lip and blend well. 

Use Powder for the Perfect Nude Lip

Start with a pale pink shade, then dust translucent powder on top for a matte effect. “I call it a powdered lip look,” says makeup artist Robin Fredriksz, who has used the technique on Drew Barrymore. 

Prime Lips for Spot-On Color

If you really like the way a lipstick color looks in the tube, prime lips with a touch of foundation before applying; that way, you start with a blank canvas. The result will be similar to what you see in the package. 

Make Your Own Stain

Turn any lipstick into a durable stain by blotting, reapplying, then blotting again to remove excess oils. Blot with lint-free blotting paper rather than tissue for a more natural, long-lasting look.
