1) Exfoliate dry lips for a smooth lipstick application with a clean mascara wand.

2) Keep lipstick off teeth by sticking your pointer finger in your mouth, wrapping your lips around it, and pulling it out.

3) Use your favorite pink lipstick as a cheek color then blend it in with your finger.

4) If your favorite shadow crumbles store the broken pieces in a container and mix what's left with some balm on a spoon, and then apply.

5) Use a concealer brush to achieve an opaque application.

6) Use a fluffy shadow brush to apply your lipstick if you want more of a diffused look.

7) Swipe on your lip color, hold a tissue over your mouth, then dust translucent powder over it to turn lipstick into a long-wearing version.

8) If your lips have a lot of pink or red tones in them, pat concealer over before you apply lipstick to nude them out.

9) Reshape your lips by first covering them with concealer, and then tracing outside your natural lip line with a liner pencil. Continue to fill in lips with the pencil for a matte look with a gloss.

10) Blot between applications to make your lip color last longer.
