Beauty nightmare: Christina’s lipstick slip-up

Oh we feel for you, Christina... She's forgotten to check in the mirror before a night out and walked out with a huge smudge of red lipstick across her face! Now we know it could happen to any girl but, with just a few lipstick rules, you could avoid a Christina-style slip-up. Gwen Stefani, Taylor Momsen, Dita Von Teese and all those converted to lipstick in the last month listen up:

1. Apply lipstick to a base like a foundation or concealer ensuring it's around the edges to stop smudges.
2. Apply the lippy.
3. Layer one single sheet of tissue paper (you may need to separate it if you have multi-ply) over the lips and sweep translucent powder over the tissue. This absorbs the excess and sets the lipstick just like you would set foundation. Result: no smudges
4. Alternatively, you could cheat and try Revlon's new Ultimate Liquid Lipstick that stays put for 12 hours and acts a bit like a stain!

Happy kissing!
