Different Ways to Mix and Match Lipsticks
As a Blush for Soft and Dewy Look
You want to add that flush of color on your cheekbones but all you have is lipstick. Using a High Pigmented Lipstick as a blush is one of the oldest and most common make-up tricks. Glide your favorite lip color on the cheekbones and blend with a sponge to soften the color for precise application. You can use soft matte, velvety or creamy lipstick as they blend seamlessly without weighing down the skin. Dab a few dots of Lipstick on the apple of cheeks and mix evenly either with fingers or a make-up brush.
Turn Creamy Lipstick in Matte
A matte lipstick gives a bold statement to the lips with a velvety texture and long-lasting results. And if you want to transform your creamy lipstick into matte, simply dust some loose powder on the lips and you are good to go. Next, blot a tissue paper between the lips and press them firmly. This hack works brilliantly as the tissue soaks all the excess moisture from the lips and increases the longevity of the Lipcolor.
Blend Two Light Shades and Create a Bold One
Ended up buying a lighter shade of lipstick that does not go well with your skin tone? Well, you can still wear the shade by mixing it with another shade. Take two shades similar belonging to the same color family and apply one layer at a time. Swipe one shade first followed by the other one and mix it well. To add definition to your lips and avoid bleeding, apply a Lip Liner on the outer corners before lipstick.
As colored Eyeliner
Using Colored Eyeliner Pen is quite a trend in the beauty world that adds a dash of color to every type of outfit. You can use your Lipstick for another interesting beauty experiment which is coloring your eyelids with Lipstick as eyeliner. Simply take a Q-tip and draw a line on the upper eyelids. You can use the same to draw cat eyes or wings for a more defined look. Using Mattish Liquid Lipstick works better as they instantly get dried and don’t end up smudging or wiping because they are transfer-proof.
And that’s how you can use your favorite Lipstick to create different make-up looks and look great beyond imagination!
