Remember my Kool-Aid Lip Stain Tutorial from last Summer? Well, there’s also something quite pretty that happens when a popsicle stains your lips! But this time I wanted to see what would happen if we were to recreate it with lipstick instead of popsicles, and…  it was so pretty that both my model Neelo and I wore it all day! You can play with color combinations and make it really subtle or a little more noticeable like we did above. Just don’t go too dramatic that it loses its effect. Here’s how: 



  1. Apply the light pink lipstick all over.
  2. Open your mouth and place a folded tissue inside like above.
  3. Close your lips onto the tissue to blot any excess.
  4. Press and “stamp” the eye shadow over the edges of the top and bottom lip, leaving the center untouched.
  5. Close your mouth and trace the coral-orange lip pencil along the inside center so it marks on the top and bottom lip as demonstrated above.
  6. Lightly tap your finger to blend the intersection of the coral and the pink.
