It's 2017 and you're never fully dressed without your lipstick on. It's every girl's weapon of choice as she takes on the world—who knew a simple swipe could do so much? And with July being the month of National Lipstick Day, it only gives us more reasons to pay homage to the one thing that allows us to effortlessly slay all day long.
1. Be a lippie guru.
Step up from the basics and learn as many lippie hacks and trends as you can. Watch YouTube videos and learn from the pros, or practice your techniques on a willing friend. When it comes to lipstick, there are no rules. Break 'em and make 'em as you go along!
2. Explore bolder colors.
Dare yourself to wear a shade you've never tried before—black, electric blue, green, orange, or white, perhaps? If you're still a bit shy, a metallic or gradient effect is the way to go. Snap a #LOTD while you're at it!
3. Make DIY lip care products and save a pretty penny.
Look up recipes online for lip scrubs, balms, and masks to maintain supple and well-moisturized puckers!
4. Declutter your collection.
Your lippies deserve more than just being lined up on the bathroom counter or stuffing them all in a makeup bag. Invest in (or DIY) creative lipstick storage solutions for your vanity corner. Half the fun is realizing how many fabulous colors you have!
5. Hoard, hoard, HOARD!
