Beauty Snaps: All About Lips

Who doesn’t love beautiful lips? We know we do! The SM Store Beauty Section and Preview.PH rounded up these tips to make your lips stand out and for you to get the most out of your precious beauty products.

Making your own DIY lip balm

Lip Hacks 1

Before applying lip color, it’s important that you have soft lips with no cracks. The good news is, you can make your own lip scrub with things you can find in your kitchen. Mix sugar into a thick base such as honey or olive oil. Clean an old mascara wand, dip it into the mixture, then gently rub this on your lips.

Plumping up those lips


For full, luscious lips, outline them with a lip liner. Warm the tip of your lining by rubbing it between your fingers so it glides on smoothly.

Lip Hack 3

Lip Art 1: Ombre Lips

To get this look, all you need are two shades of lipstick that you can blend into each other for a gradient effect.

Lip Hack 4

Add a shimmery eye shadow on top for a frosted finish.


Lip Art 2: Two-Tone Lips

If you want a more playful look, two-tone lips are the way to go. Apply a lighter lip color on your upper lip, and a darker shade on your lower lip.


Should your lipstick break while doing this, don’t panic. Get a lighter, and gently melt the broken half. Attach it to the rest of the lipstick, and keep it in the freezer for a couple of hours. The lipstick should be good as new.

Creating your own lipstick shade

Lip Hack 7

We’re pretty sure you have those big eye shadow palettes with shades you don’t get to use. Give them a new lease on life by mixing them with a creamy base to create your own lip color.

Using your lipstick as blush


Mix some matte lipstick with a few drops of sunscreen for a creamy blush that also delivers extra skin protection.
