Here's the secret to applying lipstick without a mirror

It can be done!

( It's tough to be a beauty girl on-the-go. If you're a pro (or just admittedly slightly vain), you probably have a compact mirror with you at all times—but that's not always the case because, well, life happens. Whether you find yourself in a hurry and mirror-less or you simply want to learn the ultimate life skill, that is painting your pout without the aid of a mirror, this beauty hack will instantly turn you into a lipstick-applying virtuoso.



Chelsa Crowey, makeup artist and former face of Bobbi Brown, shares with the secret to perfecting your pout sans mirror. The secret? It's in your fingertips! Well, your pinky finger, at least.


"Since perfecting your top lip can be the most challenging, first apply only to the bottom. Then, press your lips together to add color to the top, careful not to rub both lips across each other in a sweeping motion." Hmm, seems pretty simple. "Here's the important part: Once you have your lipstick on, use your pinky finger to wipe downward only on the cupid's bow to remove excess color that may have gotten outside of the lines. Voila!"  



Now you can whip out your lippie while in commute and apply it on your pucker like you were born to do it. But the real beauty sin here is when you forget to bring your go-to that's a problem.
