Want a mess-free lipstick application? This viral Q-tip hack will help

Lipstick is one makeup product we can apply with our eyes shut, but it would be a lie to say that things *never* get messy. Blame it on shaky hands, getting distracted or applying it in a rush, there are a lot of times when we end up making a complete mess. Apart from the fact that it looks disastrous, it also means that you have to redo the whole thing again. Frustrating, right?

Luckily for you, we’ve got the perfect solution to this problem. The latest viral makeup hack doing the rounds on social media uses just a modest Q-tip to make your lipstick application a lot more precise! Isn’t that awesome? Read on to find out how…

Q-tip lipstick hack

Step 01: Place a Q-tip horizontally between your lips. 

Step 02: Pick any shade you like from the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color range and start lining your lips with it. Start from the centre of the lower lip and extend to the outer corners. Fill it in with the same lipstick. 

Step 03: Start with creating an ‘X’ on your cupid’s bow. Proceed to line your lips and fill it in as usual. 

Step 04: Gently remove the Q-tip and check for smudges, if any. Blot off the excess pigment by placing a clean tissue in between your lips and gently dabbing it. 

And you’re done! Super simple, wasn’t it?
