Lipstick washing you out? Here’s how to make it work for you

The words, "No, honey, that color won't work on you," are something no one wants to hear when they've just purchased a new lipstick. But what if it's true? I'm here to tell you a few ways to make ANY lipstick work for you!

Use a lip liner

This is probably the oldest trick in the book and hands down the most effective. It's used by almost every makeup artist too! A darker shade of lip liner can change the game for you! If you have a lipstick that’s washing you out, a lip liner can help solve that problem in a jiffy! Make sure to use a liner that is a shade darker and in the same color family as your lipstick! For instance, if you have a light nude shade, a brown lip liner will pair well with it.


Use a contour shade

Our stack is equipped with everything you need, and we weren’t kidding! Use the contour shade to line your lips in case you don’t have a lip liner or just want a soft contoured look!


Use a lipstick/blush

You can mix the shade that’s not working for you with any other lipstick from your collection! You may be surprised to find a few lip combos that work well for you! Our Play Paint lipstick and the blush from the stack can also be used for this! Cheers to finding new lip combos!


Use an eyebrow pencil/eyeshadow

If you don’t have many lipsticks to mix your shade with, then try using an eyebrow pencil. Make sure you use a light hand and mix it well to provide the shadow effect! You can also use eyeshadows to elevate your lipstick shade, just like using another lipstick to mix it with!
