Lipstick is like the gift that keeps on giving – it can make your teeth look whiter, take a basic outfit to the next level, bring your hair colour to life and make your lips look twice the size with some clever application.

Case in point? Look no further than Kylie Jenner – the girl knows how to wield her way around a tube of lipstick.

So we decided to follow suit and try our hand at colouring outside the lines (without looking like you’ve completely lost the plot).

… And we were pretty damn proud of our efforts. Check the before and after – we think it’s safe to say that after reading this, you’ll never apply lipstick any other way.
