5 Lip And Cheek Tint Hacks You Should Try Out ASAP

We know you can’t live without yours.



For a natural, long-wearing flush on the cheeks and lips, there’s only one product to use: A lip and cheek tint. Here are have five hacks that will help you get the most out of your kikay kit staple.


Apply it after moisturizer or foundation
This trick will make sure that the tint won’t emphasize your pores or make your cheeks feel dry. The best way to do this is to let your moisturizer or foundation sit for a minute or two and then going in with your tint—you’ll get the prettiest flush on your cheeks!


Use lip balm as a primer
Because lip tints are long-lasting, they are quite drying. Don’t forget to prep your pout with a clear or tinted lip balm—the richer, the better—to make sure your lips stay hydrated the whole day.


Add oil to change the formula
While most lip and cheek tints are watery, there are those with a mousse-like formula, which can make it more difficult to put on. So if you’re ever faced with that kind of texture, just add a tiny drop of face oil to thin it out. P.S. Be careful not to add too much oil or the product might not stay in place.


Dab, instead of swipe, to layer
Since this type of product dries quickly, if you want to make the color more opaque, dab the color onto your lips to seamlessly blend it together with the first layer. Another tip? Be quick when applying it!


Create a gradient effect by applying on the center of your lips
When the K-beauty bug hits you, just apply the tint on the center of your pout and blend it out for a gradient effect. For a long-lasting finish, put a powder lipstick on top to make sure it doesn’t move.
