We're finding new uses for our all-time favourite products right now...

When it comes to beauty trends, they're always coming thick and fast. And because it's our nature to be on-the-pulse, we're never behind.

In the beauty world the unexpected, is expected. What's trending right now, are lipstick eyeshadows.

And since not all lipsticks are alike, we're looking at the ones that can double up and do more than just one trick. So, we picked out the 5 best lipsticks that work seamlessly as eyeshadows – especially ones which are super pigmented to give you that hard core colour block. 

So here's how to apply them on your eyelids...

– Just like every make up base, start by applying primer on your lids before applying your lip colour of choice with a doe foot applicator.

– Now, pat the colour on your lid, and with a rounded crease brush blend out the colour just like you normally do with your usual powder eye shadow.

And btw, there is official beauty terminology for this new trend: 'Lip-shadow' or 'Lid-stick'. And, take note: this hack works best when you keep the rest of your face minimal, with soft blusher, a few flicks of mascara and a natural lip colour – especially if you're opting for a strong eye lid colour. 

Now, here are five simple hair hacks we learned from Jen Atkin.
