Lipstick + lip balm Galadjian says mixing a creamy lip balm with multiple lipsticks makes it easier to blend lipstick shades together. On the back of your hand, apply one or two lipstick shades (close to each other, but not touching), then blend together with a clear lip balm or gloss. Use a small lip brush to paint your custom color onto your lips. "The balm will prevent your lips from drying out," says Galadjian. "It'll also keep the shade from being too matte or heavy-looking, but it won't tone down the rich color." Plus, unlike layering colors onto your lips, the multiple shades will be better blended and your top layer won't be too glossy.
