Former United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright once said: 

"There is a special place in hell for women who do not help other women." 

Taylor Swift said it that one time, too.

Anyway, the point we're making is if you're a woman who doesn't help other women, well—forget you. And, more specifically, if you're a woman who doesn't tell another woman that she's rockin' lipstick teeth, well, you know how it goes—there's definitely a special place picked out for you, too. 

Not sure what we're talking about? Well, ladies, I give you lipstick teeth.

We've all been there. After a long, awful commute we head to the office bathroom to freshen up before our 8AM work day, and lo and behold, there's our fave shade smeared across our pearly whites. Suddenly, we realize that all morning we've been walking around looking like we've just Vampire-Diaried someone in the train station's bathroom stall. And immediately we think: How long have I looked like this?!?

That's why we've searched far and wide for a trick that's sure to keep those wild shades at bay. Follow this 3-step guide and you'll never have to worry about Vampire mouth again, or all those rude b*tches who don't give you a heads up!

1. Layer On The Liner

Before applying any lipstick, trace your lips with liner. A shade close to your natural skin tone is best. The liner will act like a glue, almost, keeping your lipstick from having a mind of its own.

2. Pack On The Lipstick

Multiple beauty bloggers suggest applying lipstick with a brush, no matter the formula. Brushes give you control to layer on makeup, providing a darker pigment in the process, according to Cosmopolitan.

3. Test Your Lipstick

This last tip is the most important. Test your chances of getting Vamp-teeth by putting your Index finger in your mouth (don't make this weird). After creating an "O" with your mouth, pull your finger directly outward. All the extra lipstick that could've smeared on teeth, should be on your finger.

Voilà! You're welcome.
