Lipstick is any lady’s best friend. Just apply some on your lips and voila! It makes your face pop, making you look as fresh as ever, even with minimal makeup.

Like a lot of women, you probably have tons of lipsticks but only actually use some. One day, though, you decide to use that one expensive but neglected lipstick, only to discover that it has melted or even worse, broken into half.

Your little one might also mistake those vibrant lipsticks as crayons and have her own fun with them.

Steps:

  • Using a lighter or match, gently melt the top base of the lipstick that is still attached to the tube for a few seconds. Make sure the kids aren't around when you're doing this!
  • With clean hands or a piece of tissue, put the broken piece back on top of the melted base.
  • For a more seamless look, slowly melt the outer edge using a lighter or match.
  • Put the lipstick in the fridge for 20 - 30 minutes for it to cool and harden.
