7 3-Minute Party Looks Just Using Lipstick

The transformative power of lipstick knows no bounds. Find your perfect shade and it can become a real confidence-booster. But your trusty lipstick doesn't have to be confined to your lips. Beauty is about breaking rules and having fun, so let loose with your lippie and try using it on other parts of your face. Blend it onto your cheeks for a pretty flush or around your eyes for a hazy wash. Since lipstick is formulated to be worn on your lips, and essentially ingested, it's pretty safe to use on other parts of your face. And thanks to the inherently creamy formula of lipstick, it makes it an easy and quick way to transform your look.

Now, we're not suggesting you do this every day, but if you're going from desk to dance floor this party season and you only have a capsule makeup bag at your disposal, it's useful to know how your trusted lipstick really can be your beauty BFF. We're not saying, by some miracle, you can do a whole face with a lipstick, you'll still need your foundation or concealer and mascara, but the rest can be achieved from that one bullet. Scroll through for seven super-quick makeup looks you can create using only lipstick.
