Fast Fixes For Your Worst Beauty Mistakes
Messed up your fresh mani? Got lipstick all over your teeth? Need a super fast fix for a beauty accident?
Got lipstick on your teeth?
After you run to the bathroom to remove the smudge, here’s what you need to do to make sure it doesn’t happen again: separate a facial tissue into a single-ply and use it to softly blot away excess color from your lips.
“The creamier your lipstick, the more likely it is to smear,” says Poppy King, makeup artist and designer for Boots No7 Lipsticks. Then, wash your hands and place your index finger into your mouth, pucker your lips, and pull out your finger. This removes any color that’s inside the base of the lip, preventing it from migrating onto your teeth.
Smudged your freshly-polished nails?
If you have nail polish remover handy, use your fingertip to apply a tiny bit over the smeared polish—it acts like paint thinner to even out the color (nail polish remover wipes work, too).
