We’re not saying blue lipstick is the new It color, because honestly, those of us who aren’t Rihanna should probably avoid her blueberry shade. However, blue lipstick does deserve a place in your makeup bag, because there’s a great trick makeup artists use with the shade: For all of those lipsticks that don’t flatter your skin tone perfectly, apply just a dab of the blue on top. Mixing blue with a warm lipstick turns the shade cool. Our favorite is Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in RX ($18, occmakeup.com) because its gloss texture is perfect for mixing with other products.
Have you tried adjusting your lip color with another shade?
