The world has been made a better place by lipstick. Just ask any female.
Just because you were born with brown lips doesn’t mean you can never have pink lips. Simply buy a pink coloured lipstick and put it on. Viola! Pink lips galore.
The same can be said for other lip colours. These days, you can wear shades that people aren’t naturally born with like green, purple, black, even white.
In today’s fashion world, if you can think it, you can probably wear it.
There are always slight problems associated with everything. Lipstick and its application are no exceptions. From breaking to melting, lipstick can suffer a bunch of issues.
Here are some lipstick hacks you shouldn’t live without:
1. Fixing a broken lipstick
We’ve all had the unfortunate experience of having our lipstick snap into two right?!
No worries ladies. You can fix this by holding the two broken halves together over a candle flame. Once it fuses, put in the fridge for some hours and you’ve got a whole lipstick again.
2. Getting a proper cupid’s bow
The lip contouring industry is booming. And for those of us who don’t know what a cupid’s bow is.
A cupid’s bow is the indented portion of your upper lip.
Just draw an “X” where your cupid’s bow is and fill in with lipstick.
3. Making any lipstick matte
Like we said before, just apply a finishing powder to any lipstick and it’s matte.
4. Enhancing your lipstick colour
Do you want your red lipstick to put Snow White to shame?
If yes, simply use a concealer or your foundation with a concealer on your lips before you apply lipstick. Instant luscious lips.
5. Fixing a melted lipstick
Don’t you just hate forgetting your lipstick in the car on a sunny day only to come back and it’s turned gooey? Yeah, lipstick can melt. Fix this by popping it into the fridge for a few hours.
