Quick Tricks for Lipstick


Have an old greasy lipstick you don't want to toss out? Use as cream blush instead. Or, change the consistency of it. Scoop out your lipstick and apply to a small plastic pill box, or a small tin container. Pop in the microwave for a few minutes, or light a candle to it. The trick is to add heat so the lipstick starts to melt a little. Then, leave out to cool, or throw in the refrig for about 5-10 minutes. What this does is harden the lipstick to a new consistency. The heat 'melts' some of the wax,and then the cold hardens the lipstick so it will go on not nearly so greasy!

Have a too blue based lipstick? Mix a dot of yellow concealer into your lipstick, or apply a yellow based loose powder on clean lips,and apply lipstick on top. There will be just enough warmth in the product to take the edge off a too cool/blue shade.

Want to update your lipsticks to the new cool blue based tones? Apply a navy blue eye pencil, or eye shadow on lips and apply your lipstick on top ....just a little will do and you'll have a new shade.

A soft brown eye shadow applied on lips first will darken any too light shade.

Make your own fall color by mixing blue eye shadow and red blush on your lips. Apply a lip balm on top and you're set. The most fun part is that every time you try this, you can experiment and get a different version every time.

Use your shimmer highlighter sticks from spring/summer to highlight lipsticks. Apply on a clean mouth first, and then your dull lipstick on top. An instant frosted fall shade.

The color for fall is the 'bitten' lip look. Just take your rosy blush and apply dry on lips. Apply your Vitamin E stick on top for a lip blush. Gel cheek colors work great for this too.

Finding the right lipstick is really thru trial and error. And don't forget looking at the smaller lines as well. A very expensive lipstick usually means that more money was spent on packaging, advertising, and fragrance in the product. It doesn't necessarily mean that you'll like it better. Some of my favorite ones are the inexpensive "Wet & Wild" and "Jane" lipsticks for just a few bucks..
