Lip stains are a makeup lover’s best friend in the summer months. Lightweight and long-lasting, most lip stains do precisely what the name suggests: they stain your lips to a perfectly pouty hue that lasts way longer than lipgloss or lipstick.

While make-up is more of an art than a science, there are a few things we know for sure:

  1. Sephora Rouge is a thing... and if you're not in yet, you need to be
  2. Eyeliner will always be an uneven nemesis
  3. Highlight and contour are total game changers
  4. Lip color comes in so. many. different varieties
