For a natural, long-wearing flush on the cheeks and lips, there's only one product to use, a.k.a. our beauty bag staple for the hot summer months, too: a lip and cheek tint. Here, we've listed down six easy hacks that will make them look extra ~*flawless*~ on your skin!
Tints can get streaky or splotchy, especially if you've got visible redness, enlarged pores, or dryness on your cheeks. So ace your base first with a liquid or cream foundation—not powder, which can cake under your tint—as this gives you a smoother canvas for seamless blending.
Because lip tints are ultra long-lasting, they can be drying, especially the thin formulas. Don't forget to prep your pout with a clear or tinted lip balm—the richer, the better—to make sure your lips feel comfortable the whole day.
Since this type of product dries quickly, dab the color onto your lips to seamlessly blend it together with the first layer to make it more opaque. Another tip? Be quick when applying it!
While most lip and cheek tints are watery, there are those with a mousse-like formula, which can make it more difficult to put on. So if you're ever faced with that kind of texture, just add a tiny drop of face oil to thin it out. P.S. Be careful not to add too much oil or the product might not stay in place.
When the K-beauty bug hits you, just apply the tint on the center of your pout and blend it out for a gradient effect. For a long-lasting finish, put a powder lipstick on top to make sure it doesn't move.
We got this trick from London-based makeup artist Nikki Wolf, and it lets you score a gorgeous, natural-looking flush with no streaks! Just apply a bit of tint on your blush brush, and quickly blend over the apples of your cheeks in circular motions. Her tip: You've got to work fast because once the tint is on, it lasts.
