DIY + Splurge/Steal Lip Stains

I love the look of a lip stain. There are soo many different lines that offer great ones. But if you rather not spend too much money on one, here are two quick & inexpensive tricks to try out.

1. Apply a dark red/berry lipstick that is very rich in color right before you do your makeup. After you finish your makeup, remove w/ a tissue. Voila- instant lip stain. Add clear gloss if you like, or keep it matte.

2. Use red (cheery or strawberry) Jell-O or Kool-Aid. Use a Q-tip or lip brush to keep from staining your fingertip. Mix a little bit of the powder w/ a drop or two of water & apply! Once again, Voila- instant lip stain!

You can mix the powders with Vaseline, Vitamin E, or Smith’s Rosebud Salve for a great stain/gloss combo. Keeping the stain mainly on the inner part of your lip will recreate the look of wine stained lips which was huge during NY Fashion Week.

Tons of lines ranging from $8-30 can be found on or pick up E.L.F. Studio Stain for a steal of a deal for only $3!
Until next time dolls! <3- Jules
