How to Use a Lip Stain

Beauty Refresher: How to Use a Lip Stain

A variety of products exist in the world of lip care: lipstick, lip gloss, lip balm, lip conditioner, and more. But if you're looking for a low-maintenance look that lasts and lasts, a lip stain is the way to go. Find out the benefits of a stain when you read more.

Why use it? You might choose a stain if you are looking for a long-lasting, smudge-proof option with a matte finish. For additional moisture, though, you can always swipe a lip balm on top.

How does it work? A lip stain is made with gel, water, or a bit of oil, whereas the average lipstick contains mostly wax. Traditional stains give a sheer color using a dye and alcohol (for all-day wear).

How do you apply it? Although stains can be used alone, they also work well as a base to enrich the color of your other products. When using it on the lips, top it off with a lipstick to create a more vivid color. And when used on the cheeks, top it off with a powder blush for a long-lasting, budge-proof flush.
