They say good things come in pairs, and we can't deny how true that it is—at least, in terms of creating the perfect lip color. Our pout is our canvas, after all, and mixing lipsticks we already own together is the best way to whip up a brand new favorite shade for the price of nothing. If you're looking for new combos to try, here are 10 awesome lipstick mixes from 10 makeup-loving Preview girls:
1. Anthea Bueno
"Most of the time I would mix lippies for clients. It's Velvet Fawn from Lisa Eldridge and Teviant Lip Spell in Elizabeth. [The former] leans a bit cooler while Elizabeth is warm and orange. When I mix it it turns into this beautiful warm nude that's matte."

"For a red look, I love the Retro Matte in All Fired Up from MAC mixed with Loréal's Rose Nuance 242. It gives a soft red with velvet texture. Quite nice. And for nude look I like to do Vacay from Sunnies Face topped with J. Cat Liptitude in the shade Fappening, and finish with Glowboss in Mamacita from Sunnies."
