KEEP LIPSTICK OFF YOUR TEETH WITH YOUR FINGER.
After you’ve put on one of our Canvas Cosmetics lipsticks, put your index finger in the middle of your mouth (wash your hands before you do this!) and pull it out. Any excess lipstick will come out on your finger and this is an easy way to make sure you don’t have lipstick on your teeth!
RE-PURPOSE BROKEN EYE SHADOW AS LIP COLOR.
We all have those sad moments when your eye shadow palette drops and cracks in to a million pieces. This doesn’t have to end in the disposal of your expensive palette. Simply put some of the broken pieces in a tiny container and mix it with a little bit of a balm (I personally like using Vaseline because it’s super easy to deal with) and you have yourself a new lippy!
EXFOLIATE YOUR LIPS BEFORE APPLYING YOUR LIPPY.
This is the key to achieving a beautiful, non cakey, even coat on your lips! Simply hop over to our previous blog post about different lip scrub recipes, pick your favorite one and you’re all set. From there, grab your favorite Canvas Cosmetics lippie and go conquer the day!
APPLY A THIN LAYER OF FOUNDATION OR CONCEALER AROUND YOUR LIPS AFTER APPLYING YOUR LIPPIE.
Not all of us are makeup pro’s and more often than not, we apply our lipstick outside the lines and when you’re wearing a bold color like Rumba by Canvas Cosmetics this is very noticeable. No need to fret! Just grab your concealer or foundation on a flat angled brush and go around your lips to give a more seamless look.
TAP A LITTLE BIT OF A METALLIC HIGHLIGHT ON YOUR BOTTOM LIP FOR A FULLER EFFECT.
Mixing non-metallic and metallic lippies is an easy way to jazz up your look. A great example of this is applying Dawn by Canvas Cosmetics (a lovely subtle pink color) and placing Sahara on top of it. It gives a subtle glow, makes your lips look fuller and more interesting.
