Use Lipstick for Matching Blush

In a pinch, you can use lipstick as blush. Just rub a little on your finger tip and apply where you would apply blush.

I recently read a good tip on Thrifty Fun regarding using up the last bit of lipstick in a tube by mixing it with Vaseline to make a good lip gloss. It works really well too incidentally.

Here's another similar tip although you don't wait until your tube of lipstick is nearly gone. You can use your lipstick from the start to make a matching Blush by adding just a little foundation to your cheeks and then rub your clean finger across the side of the lipstick and then into the cheeks where the foundation is.

Perfectly matching Blush every time. Blend it in well just where you want it. It'll last all day too. A tiny touch of it along the jawline adds great definition and just a hint of it on the forehead takes the eye of the beholder up. A nice balance.
