After applying lipstick, suck your finger for a quick second to get the excess off your inner lips that always ends up on your teeth. There is nothing worse than cheesing hard, then finding out later that your teeth have had lipstick streaks for who knows how long! Matte finishes have helped in this area, but I tend to find some cute lipsticks that don’t come in a matte finish.

You can also apply translucent powder, but it’s a task that needs to be practiced.

I hope these few tips help you get started. I went from taking 30 minutes to apply makeup to 5 minutes and I'm out the door. Play with it a little bit to find what suits you best and stay in your lane. On those rare occasions that you need to be a complete beauty queen, let the professionals handle it. In the meantime, keep it cute ladies!
