Worse than having lipstick on a cup is staining your teeth. Here are a few quick tips to keep your teeth white and lips your red/pink, etc.
- Blot excess lipstick
Fold a facial tissue or a paper handkerchief and press it lightly over your lips.
- Do not bite your lips
Girl, you smudge lipstick on your teeth when you bite your lips. It is time to stop this habit.
- Get matte lipstick if you cannot help but stain your lips
Matte finish lipstick is non-glossy and it lasts longer.
- After applying lipstick, smile and look at your teeth
It will save you the embarrassment of smiling with lipstick on your teeth.
- The finger test
Slip a clean index finger into your mouth, pucker your lips and slowly draw the finger out, along with the excess lipstick on the inner side of your lips.
- Use the correct lipstick application process
Exfoliate, use a lip liner, blot after every layer, etc. You will not have lipstick on your teeth, and the lipstick will hold and stay on lips your longer.
- Buy quality lipstick
Avoid cakey lipstick because the particles are bound to rest somewhere, probably on your teeth. Before buying lipstick, read reviews to know what other women have to say about a particular brand. Shop in a store with a variety of brands. Online shopping gives you a wide range of brands, and you can read reviews there too.
- Good dental hygiene
Brush your teeth well, regularly. Lipstick clings to plaque and other oral buildup.
If these tips don’t work, let’s get back to the drawing board to find a solution to keep lipstick off our teeth, and coffee mugs.
