You Can Do What with Lipstick?!

You Can Do What with Lipstick?!

A lipstick can be your greatest weapon. A bold red lip or a statement nude pout can make your confidence skyrocket, but that’s not all it’s good for. What if we told you that your impressive lipstick collection can do more than just add colour to your lips? Because it can! There’s tonnes of different ways to use your lippy, find out our favourite hacks below…

Different Ways to Use Lipstick

Full-Face Makeup Look

Did you know you can create a full-face makeup look with a brown lipstick, a few brushes and a beauty blender? Great for when you’re travelling and you need to pack light, you don’t need to tone down your makeup. Using the right brushes, you can use it as eyeshadow or eyeliner, to fill in your brows and contour. If you have brown hair and unmatched roots, dabbing a small amount on with a cotton bud can also be a temporary root fix!

Use as Blusher

You can colour co-ordinate your lips to your cheeks by using your pink lipstick as a cream blusher. One such as the Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick in shade Bright Natural is a good choice, and when it’s blended well it can look more natural than a powder blush! Whilst applying, remember that a little goes a long way.

Transform It into Gloss

Especially useful when running out of your favourite lipstick, you can transform it into a gloss to make it go further. Scrape the remainders out of the container and mix it into a clean pot with a clear gloss. You can even combine several shades to create your own custom colour with ease.

Eyeshadow Base

Bold eyeshadow looks can really make your makeup pop, yet sometimes it can be difficult to get the colours to stand out and stay put all day. Intensify pigment and give your shadows something to stick to by using a lipstick in the same colour as a cream eyeshadow base.

Top tip: try to get a shade as close to your shadow as possible for a seamless look.

Tattoo Cover Up

As great as tattoos can be, sometimes for whatever reason, you may need to hide them. Rather than hoping concealer will do the trick alone, start with a few thin coats of red lipstick. Neutralising the colour, you can then build on it with concealer, powder and setting spray for a flawless canvas once again. This can also work for extremely dark circles and other imperfections.
