Life is expensive to say the least and makeup can become costly. Even the brokest of ladies (raises own hand) want to look good no matter what our beauty budget maybe.
Lipstick is usually the gateway beauty weapon of choice for most women, but are you using your lipstick to it’s fullest potential? Just because you can efficiently read a label doesn’t mean we can’t bend the rules just a little.
Lipstick, is definitely one of the most underestimated beauty tools in our makeup bag. Whether you are broke as heck, or just over the same old beauty routine, here are four alternative ways to get the most out of your lipstick.
1. Eyes– Looking for a little drama? Take a dark shade of lipstick across the eyes for a dark sultry look. Lipstick on the lids also makes for a great primer for eyeshadow.
2. Cheeks– Keep on blushing girl! Take your favorite pink, red, or green lipstick, and rub a little on your cheeks. This would be similar to using a cream blush. Just add a light setting powder and voilà. (To each his own on the green)
3. Brows– Fleek those brows! Colored eyebrows are becoming increasingly popular, but not too many people know the secret to achieving this look. Lipstick! With the help of an angled brush you can achieve those wild colored brows in any color your heart desires, maybe even that green from earlier.
4. Highlighter– In a rush? Keep a light colored satin finish lipstick in your make up bag. The satin finish works the same way a contour highlighter does in brightenings selected areas of the face. This is a great technique in emergency situations. You just never know when you’ll need a good highlight.
Don’t be fooled by the label girlfriend, work that makeup bag to the best of your ability!
