How to use lipstick as an eyeshadow :

Step 01: Pick a liquid formula; we know you have a huge lipstick collection so finding a liquid lipstick won’t be a problem. But make sure its creamy in texture like the Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Mousse Lip And Cheek Color. A lipstick that gives matte finish will dry up quickly and will be difficult to work with

Step 02: Start by applying a primer over your eyelids. This will prevent the oils from your lids from messing up your eye makeup. It is important to choose a primer that gives a matte finish such as the Lakmé Absolute Undercover Gel Primer

Step 03: After completing your base makeup, wash your hands thoroughly and take a tiny amount of the lipstick on your fingertip. Apply on the eyelid and blend using an eyeshadow brush

Step 04: If you want to go for a bolder eye look, apply a little more product. Wear the same lipstick on your lips and you’ve got yourself a super trendy monochrome look.
