An Easy Way to Keep Your Lipstick Off Your Glass

I'm relatively new to lipstick, but I love the way it pulls a look together. And especially during the holidays, what says "I'm making an effort to look nice" more than a swipe of red lipstick? The only problem is that while I'm sipping a drink, it seems that my lip color immediately transfers to the glass. After a few sips, my big beauty effort is effectively erased.

But, it seems like there's a simple beauty hack for keeping your lipstick on your lips and not on your glass. All you need to do is simply lick the glass before you take your first sip, according to FWx. You're probably thinking "who does that?" but don't worry, I was skeptical at first, too. At a crowded party, how are you supposed to hide the fact that you're licking your drink?

I gave it a try at an engagement party this weekend, and much to my surprise, licking was a bit easier than expected. After I got my cocktail, I slyly licked the glass as I was turning from the bar to the crowd. Though the bartender may have caught a glimpse of my trick, no one else seemed to, and my lipstick stayed in place for most of the night. Try it out for yourself!
