Lipstick Transformation!

Believe it or not, but this is actually the same lipstick in the pictures below. It's a super easy trick to transform one colour into another. 



I'm wearing Blush from Make Up Store, a pretty neutral matte pink. The original colour is to the left and the one to the right is a bonus one!

How did I do it?

Start with painting the entire lips with your favorite white eye pencil. I used Elate from Illamasqua.


 Then add the lipstick and make sure to draw it on thoroughly, you don't want the white to be spotted too much. But sometimes keeping a thin line of white left on the contour adds a cool touch.




Just another picture of the original colour. Just remember to wipe off the lipstick before you're going to use it again. This technique could easily be done with any colour on the bottom, like a blue start topped with a red lipstick. Or a black base with bright pink on top. See where I'm going with this?! It's just the imagination that holds us back!!!

Enjoy!

Wow this is a very cool idea indeed! You have the best imagination with makeup! I usually like to have a separate product for each function and forget to just experiment lol.
