Lipstick Tips and Tricks

*Lipstick done? You might notice there's still a bit of lipstick down in the tube. Scrape out the last bits with a cotton swap or orange stick & mix it with Vaseline or lip gloss. Use a lip brush to apply. 

*Use liner on your lips as a base. Lipstick will last longer if you fill in your lips with the liner first. If you're using light lipstick, try a nude liner. Then slick your lipstick on top.

*Keep lipstick off your teeth with this trick. After applying lipstick, take your index finger and pop it in your mouth, then pull it out. The excess lipstick will come off on your finger rather than your teeth.

*Lipstick can act as a blush. But never use blush as a lipstick. 

*The older you are, the 'creamier' your lips should look. Women over 50 should avoid matte or a gloss and stick with a creamy lipstick. (I’m not sure about this one—I like wearing lip gloss sometimes!)

*Don't throw out a bad color lipstick. Beauty editors know you can create a great lip color by blending lipsticks you don't like. You can also color in lips with a darker liner before applying a lipstick that's too bright. 

*For 'plump' lips, apply liner just outside your natural lip line.  Dab a bit of gloss in the middle of your bottom lip. 

*Heal -- don't throw out -- a broken lipstick. If your lipstick breaks off, simply take off the broken portion with a tissue, then slowly wave a lit match under the broken piece of lipstick. When it's melted a bit, put it back on the base, swivel it down and put it in the fridge -- uncovered -- for 30 minutes. 

*Avoid orange or brown shades, including corals. They tend to make teeth appear yellow. 

*Keep lipstick off glass. Discreetly lick the lip of the glass before touching your lips to it. It works!
