How to Use Lipstick as Blush
You are out of blush; now what? No problem, you can use your lipstick as a blush. Follow these simple steps, and you’ll get pretty, rosy cheeks.
Find the Perfect Shade
The first step is to find the perfect shade of lipstick. You want something close to your natural skin tone or a shade that will compliment your blush color. If a shade is too dark, it will give you a clown-like appearance. If it is too light, it will make you look washed out. Likewise, if the shade is too orange, red, or pink, it can look unnatural.
Test It Out
Once you have found the perfect shade, it is time to test it. Take a small amount of lipstick and apply it to your cheek. Then, using a makeup brush or your fingers, blend it outwards and upwards. If the color is too light, add a little bit more. If it is too dark, blend it out more.
Now that you have the perfect shade, it is time to apply it. Start by lining your lips with lipstick. Then, using a makeup brush or your fingers, apply the lipstick to the apples of your cheeks and blend it outwards and upwards. Be sure to blend it well, so there are no lines or streaks.
Finish It Off
Once you have applied the lipstick, finish it off with a touch of powder. It helps set the color and gives your cheeks a natural, rosy finish.
And that’s it! Now you know how to use lipstick as a blush. So next time you’re in a pinch, don’t worry; you can always turn to your lipstick for a bit of color.
