Before we move on to our list, allow us to enumerate some lipstick hacks we’ve learned from the experts. Truth be told, there are different opinions on this one. Beauty gurus all have their own techniques, but we found some tips that may work for most of us.

  1. Real Simple says it’s best to put lip balm before applying the lipstick. This helps you achieve an even application.

  2. Meanwhile, Byrdie shares that for the right shade, go for one or two shades darker than your lip color.

  3. Insider also suggests you fill in your lips using a brush so you can control the amount that goes to your lips. For us, however, if you feel comfortable using your finger or applying it straight from the tube, go ahead and do so. Just don’t forget to blot afterward.

  4. Finally–and this is something we all agree with–go for the color you love. You may follow the trends, but at the end of the day, wear what makes you feel glamorous and confident.
