4 Genius Ways To Get The Most Out Of Your Lipsticks

Sometimes lipstick is the only item which we carry in our bag, sometimes it was your favourite obsession and now you are just too bored of it, sometimes it’s so expensive that you wish you could use it in more than just one way and other times it just doesn’t go with your skin anymore.


We all do need some hacks which will help us in using lipstick in many other ways.  We have decoded 4 genius ways for you all how you can use lipstick. Preferably you used matt lipsticks like MAC.

To Conceal dark circles

If you happen to have dark circles you will be aware of the fact that how difficult it is to hide them when wearing makeup but use your favourite orange to red tone matte lipstick (depending on your skin colour) all over it and then with the help of a beauty sponge just pat your concealer all over it. And voila it’s all gone!

As an eyeshadow

Your lipstick, especially the one with little glitter particles in it makes for an amazing all over the lid eyeshadow. Just apply it all over the lid and then blend it using a crease colour for a 2 min cut-crease look.


As a Contour

Well, the red and pinks are pretty useless in this case but your neutral undertones might come in handy when you want to give your face a little structure. Just apply that warm brown shade in a ‘3’ shape on either side of your face and blend it using your fingers or a sponge.

As a Blush

Well, the pinks and peach are very often used to add a little blush to your cheeks. Just apply that on your cheeks on either side of your face and blend it using your fingers or a sponge.

With these there hacks you can easily do your makeup on quick go with your lipstick.
