Beauty Tip: Use Your Lipstick as Blush

Posted January 31, 2014 by in Beauty

I absolutely HATE blush! Why? Because it’s usually the only makeup I have that breaks/crumbles. I got so tired of it that I had to find an alternative. I now use lipstick!

Not only does this technique prevent my makeup bag from over flowing with excess products, but it saves me money in the long run.

Here’s how:

What You Need

  • Foundation
  • Powder
  • Pink Lipstick

I used Sally Girl Lipstick in T.K.O. ($1), L’Oreal Souffle in Buff Beige ($12), and e.l.f. Powder in Light Beige ($1).


1. Apply your foundation as usual

2. On each cheek “draw” a line with a pink lipstick of your choice

3. Blend in the lipstick

4. Apply your powder with a brush all over

Finished Product!
