This Trick Will Keep Lipstick Off Your Teeth

There are few things more embarrassing than realizing you’ve had lipstick on your teeth all day. (Dear everyone: Please be a pal and let somebody know!) Fortunately, these easy steps will ensure your grin will stay color-free.

Step 1: Line your lips.
Apply lip liner along the edges of your lips. I prefer a color similar to my natural lip shade, but you can also match your lip liner and lipstick. The technique is the same.

Step 2: Fill them in with lip liner.
Use the lip liner from step 1 to fill in your lips. This acts as an anchor for color, preventing the lipstick you’re about to apply from budging.

Step 3: Apply lipstick.
You can do this straight from the tube or with a lip brush.

Step 4: Put your finger in your mouth.
This is the key trick to ensuring your lipstick doesn’t transfer to your smile: Form an “O” with your lips, put your index finger through the “O,” and slowly pull it out. Voilà — all that pesky lip color that was waiting to get on your teeth is now on your finger.

Bonus tip: Don’t forget to wash your hands after this step; the only thing worse than getting lipstick on your teeth is staining it all over your shirt.

Step 5: Check your teeth.
Give your teeth a quick once-over so you know for sure that they’re smear-free.
