Between its intense pigmentation and ability to stay on through a greasy pizza dinner, liquid lipstick is one of the most reliable makeup products out there. And just when we thought we couldn’t love it any more, we stumbled upon a video from YouTube influencer Peachy that showcases different ways to use liquid lipstick. From using it as a blush to eyebrow makeup, check out four hacks that prove liquid lipstick is a multipurpose product.

As a Liquid Blush

Using your liquid lipstick as a blush is a great way to add a pop of color to your cheeks when you’re in a pinch or when you want to do a monochromatic look. We recommend using the Lancôme Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick because the spongy applicator makes it easy to blend out for a subtle and natural look. 

To Contour 

Similarly, you can also use your liquid lipstick to contour your face. It’s great for those who prefer working with liquid makeup products. For the most natural-looking results, apply the formula on the back of your hand and blend it with a beauty sponge before applying it on your face to ensure you’re only using a small amount of product. 

As a Lip Liner

Whether you want to create that ombré lip effect with two shades or simply don’t have a matching lip pencil, try using your liquid lipstick as lip liner. Just make sure to use a thin lip brush for a more precise application.

On Your Eyebrows

One of the best things about liquid lipsticks are their long-lasting and often waterproof formulas, which is why they’re great for creating a bold eyebrow look. And with so many shades available, finding a hue that matches your brows shouldn’t be too difficult. We recommend something like Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Protector and using an eyebrow brush for application.
