For a natural, long-wearing flush on the cheeks and lips, there's only one product to use: a lip and cheek tint. Below, we have five hacks that you need to master:
1. Apply it after moisturizer or foundation.
This trick will make sure that the tint won't emphasize your pores or make your cheeks feel dry.

2. Use lip balm as a primer.
Because lip tints are long-lasting, they are quite drying. Don't forget to prep your pout with a clear or tinted lip balm—the richer, the better—to make sure your lips feel comfortable the whole day.

3. Add oil to change the formula.
While most lip and cheek tints are watery, there are those with a mousse-like formula, which can make it more difficult to put on. So if you're ever faced with that kind of texture, just add a tiny drop of face oil to thin it out. P.S. Be careful not to add too much oil or the product might not stay in place.

4. Dab, instead of swipe, to layer.
Since this type of product dries quickly, if you want to make the color more opaque, dab the color onto your lips to seamlessly blend it together with the first layer. Another tip? Be quick when applying it!

5. Create a gradient effect by applying on the center of your lips
Has the K-beauty bug hit you yet? Just apply the tint on the center of your pout and blend it out for a gradient effect. For a long-lasting finish, put a powder lipstick on top to make sure it doesn't move.
