We’re back with another hack that won’t just simplify your beauty routine, but will probably change your life. I spend a decent amount of time scrolling through my social media feed and that’s how I stumbled upon this makeup hack that involves a lip stain making makeup application easier. Ever thought of using your favourite lip stain as an eyeshadow, or contour and then what it’s meant for….as a lip stain? 2023 is the year of versatile beauty, and this hack just proves it.

You begin by applying the lip stain over your eyelids followed by applying it below your lash line tooโ€”blend these with an eyeshadow brush to add a pop of colour to your lids whilst giving it a smokey effect with the lower lash line. Follow it up by using the lip stain to draw a small line under your cheekbones to sculpt them and add some definition to them. Finally, use it for its OGย  use, as a lip stain. The result is an easy monochromatic makeup look that is perfect for when you’re doing your makeup on the go or when you’re just in a hurry.

Looking for the perfect lip stain to ace this hack? Here’s a list of all of our favourites.
