Here are three products in your makeup kit that can be replaced by your lipstick.

Colour Corrector

I bet you never thought to wear your lipstick under your eyes, but red lipstick is surprisingly effective as a colour corrector under your concealer. Since red cancels out the colours blue and black, simply dab lipstick under your eyes before applying your concealer and say bye-bye to dark under eye circles.


Lipstick can also be worn as a stunning cream eyeshadow. Apply it straight onto your eyelids and use your fingers to blend it until you get your desired look. A brown or mauve lipstick is a great place to start, but a bold red or pink lipstick looks amazing for a high-fashion look.


There’s no need to carry both blush and lipstick in your handbag when your lipstick actually doubles as a cream blush. Apply a red, pink or peach coloured lipstick to your cheeks and blend it out with your fingers for a soft flush.
