Armed with the right lipstick, a girl can take on the world! Whether you favour berries, reds or pouty pinks, you know that a lipstick can up your confidence like no other. Since 90% of our daily conversation revolves around these magical tubes, we decided to compose a list of tricks that every lip addict must know.

1.     Blank It Out

Disappointed that your bright pink lipstick looks different on your lips? Don’t worry, we’ve got a solution! Apply a thin layer of foundation on to your lips and blend it over your lip line. This easy trick will create a blank canvas and allow your lipsticks to really pop!

2.     Go Matte

Matte lipstick cravings are a real thing. If all you’ve got in your bag are shiny lippies, don’t head to buy a matte one. Simply dust a tiny bit of translucent powder over any creamy lipstick to give it a matte finish.

3.     Powder Up

Speaking of powders, sweep a translucent one on to your lips prior to application. This quick step will make sure that the pigment binds to the powder, to make it last all night long – even through multiple sips of wine!

4.     Reach For Your Liner

Yes, we know that you know all about lining your lips. But, did you know you can create a sheer lipstick with a lip liner? All you have to do is line your lips and fill them in. Top it off with a thick, clear balm for sheer, glossy lips.

5.     Pout Like A Pro

Ever noticed how celebrities never get lipstick on their teeth? All you have to do is pop your index finger in your mouth and close your lips around it. Pull out your finger, while your lips are still closed, and voila! Any lipstick that could have migrated to your teeth, is now on your finger.
