Rule 1: Start with a cleanup

Clean your lips with a good lip scrub.

 One of these 3 basic formulas is sure to suit you, try Bollyglow’s Mini Lip Trio Kits that come in Thriller (red), Romantic Comedy (pink) & Raw footage (nude), each contain 3 formulas-cream, matte & gloss.
Rule 3: To intensify a lip colour, use a lip pencil.
Make sure to always line your lips with a lip pencil before applying your lipstick for it to last longer.
Rule 4: A brush will help lipstick last longer
To get the most moolah out of your lisptick, apply it with a brush #BGStars! Plus, it wastes less product.  P.S Apply lipstick with an angled brush for a sharp, dramatic look
Rule 5: 
To avoid getting lipstick on your teeth, use a clean ear bud and place it in between your lips & save yourself from the awkwardness.
Rule 6: Blot the right way
After your lipstick application, don’t forget to blot-this just makes sure that the lipstick is evenly distributed. Plus, blotting with tissue will help lipstick from smudging
Rule 7: A dab of highlighter will enhance your cupid bow 
Dab some highlighter to the center of your lower lip and and your cupid’s bow to make your lips looks fuller. Use Bollyglow’s Bollystrobe Liquid Highlighter in Pearl for a luminous effect.

7 Different Ways To Use Your Lipstick

Hey beauties, with the entire Covid-19 crises and the use of a mask made compulsory, you may/may not want to bid your lipsticks goodbye. Tough choice! Well if you do plan on getting rid of them, we suggest you don’t! Throwing it away would be wasteful really without knowing what else that bullet of colour could be used for other than your lips.

What if we tell you lipsticks can be used as other types of cosmetics and as a pen too (write a love note on mirrors or tissues in lipstick), moreover your lipsticks have always been the best friend you’ve had in your makeup kit all this while. You just have never appreciated them enough! #BGStars gear up to get all DIY with your lipsticks.  Here are different ways to use your lipsticks that have nothing to do with your lips.

Take A Look…

CREAM BLUSH

Don’t have a blush bar at hand, no problem. Get a hold of your lipstick instead—this is a #throwbackhack to swipe your finger over the lipstick and blend it on your cheeks in a circular motion. Bet your grandma used to do it to get that rosy cheek.

COLOURED EYESHADOW

Using your lipstick as an eyeshadow is the best and most effective trick ever. Why? Lipstick eyeshadow tends to last longer than the real deal and looks fabulous too!

UNDER-EYE CONCEALER

Red matte lipstick as a corrector is approved, so give it a go. Just when you are running out on your corrector, reach for your red lipstick and apply under and around your dark eye circles with a concealer brush. If need be, you can apply it on other dark spots and blemishes. Just remember to not apply too much of the lipstick because it might be difficult to cover up with concealer in the next step.

CONTOUR LIKE A PRO

#BGStars, contouring can be tricky with a contouring stick so if you are not too confident then go easy on this trick. Try it at home first, start from the center of your forehead, down the side of your face, through to just beneath the cheekbones but not past the edge of the eye, and then down the side of the bottom half of the face to the chin with a brown lipstick (or nude lipstick) that’s a couple shades darker than your skin tone. The key to nailing it is blending away well or this could turn into a disaster, not something any of us want. No harm in giving it a try.

MIX WITH OTHER LIPSTICKS

Yes, you read that right. This trick is amazing especially when you don’t want to spend too much money. Get the shade you’ve been dying to wear by simply mixing up a few lipstick shades in different textures if you wish. Try it out, now is the perfect time to experiment ladies. We suggest use a matte formula first with the help of a lip brush when you decide to combine different textures of lipsticks.

CREATE A LIP GLOSS

Looking to keep it subtle & add sheen on your lips and on a budget? Don’t buy another gloss. Make your lipstick shine with a dab of Vaseline or coconut oil.

A NOTE IN LIPSTICK? SURE! USE IT AS A PEN.

Lastly, your highly saturated red lipstick works great as a pen! Leave a note for your hubby/boyfriend on the mirror or tissue this #lockdown with the help of a lipstick! We think it’s pretty glamorous, yet romantic. Plus you anyway have enough lipsticks to waste to use it as a pen, don’t you? Was that a nod?
