Have you ever thought about hacking your lipstick? M Crowd Influencer Julia teaches you four innovative ways to hack your favorite red lipstick using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in True Red, ahead:
Hack 1: Color Correcting
Did you know you can use red lipstick to color correct dark circles? The red cancels out the darkness so your concealer can really do the work of brightening up your under eye area. To try this hack, dab the lipstick under your eye and then blend it out like a concealer. Next, apply concealer as normal and watch your dark circles disappear.
Hack 2: Wing It Out!
You can also hack your lipstick to create a bold, bright wing. Here’s how: Use a slanted liner brush coated in red lipstick and create a fierce cat eye. Layering it over black liner adds dimension and interest to an otherwise basic look.
Hack 3: Better Than Blush
Need cheek color in a pinch? Simply apply lipstick to your cheeks like a cream blush. Using a beauty blender will give you an airbrushed effect.
Hack 4: Fake Fuller Looking Lips
To create fuller lips, start by drawing an X where you would like your cupid’s bow to be. It’s best to closely follow the natural line of your lips to create a seamless effect. Next, apply the lipstick — using the X as your guide. Bonus: Adding extra product to the center of your lips helps the color last longer.
