If you haven’t thought about this before, you are welcome. Contouring with lipstick is the greatest hack. Use a brown lipstick that's a couple of shades darker than your skin tone. Follow the Kim Kardashian regime; apply it to the sides of your nose, right under your cheekbones, along your hairline, under your bottom lip, on your jawline and blend with a damp sponge.

Conceal under eye bags

Always refer back to the colour wheel to figure out which tone works well for concealing. “Dark circles under the eyes are typically blue or green in colour tone, so try using a red or orange lipstick to combat that,” to achieve a flawless look.
