One tube of lipstick can be worn more ways than you think (here's 10 if you want proof). But if all you want on your pout is just a hint of color, you can turn any bullet into a creamy lip tint by blotting it off with a tissue after application. It's a classic trick that won't let you down. Keep scrolling for celebrity-inspired looks you can try!
Miss Intercontinental-Philippines 2018 Karen Gallman made her teracotta lip color extra wearable using the blotting technique. See how it tied her neutral-toned look together with ease:
Cop Chie Filomeno's tinted lip using a rose-colored lipstick with an ultra-matte finish. If you want more color, just dab on some more! Don't forget to exfoliate beforehand, though, so the pigment won't get caught in any dry spots.
Blot off your favorite coral lipstick to get a juicy pout like Anne Curtis. For extra plumpness and hydration, top it off with some gloss!
Lastly, for an easy breezy take on a red pout, recreate Kathryn Bernardo's look and apply your creamiest rouge to the center of your lip before letting the tissue ply do its thing. It's one of the quickest ways to do a sheer gradient lip!
