Are you desperately looking for tips to make your lipstick last longer?
It is very annoying when your beautiful lip colour disappears before you have barely stepped out of your house.
So what can you do to maintain a sharp look?
Tips to make your lipstick last longer
If you are tired of having to reapply your lipstick over and over again, try these helpful tips to make your lipstick last longer.
Make sure there are no flakes of dead skin renting out space on your pout. Use a lip scrub to exfoliate those away. It will make you lipstick stain.
Follow this by applying a hydrating, non-oily lip balm. Anything with a waxy consistency is preferred over a slimy texture that will cause the colour to slide right off.
Next, pat a little foundation or concealer over your lips. Don't entirely erase your mouth, but take out your lip's natural pink so that your lip colour's exact hue will show.
This will give it a little something extra to adhere to. If you have a dark skin tone, this also helps enhance the lipstick's actual colour.
Now, outline your lips with a lip liner, as well as fill them in. The lip pencil is drier than lipstick and serves as a layer of colour for the lipstick to grab onto.
Start by applying your lip colour selectively, instead of just swiping across the whole lip. This makes for even, controlled application.
Now fill in the rest of your lips.
Take a tissue and separate it into two halves. Place one sheet on your lips and dust a translucent powder over your lips, through the tissue.
This trick is used by makeup artists backstage at fashion shows. This sets the colour, without depositing a layer of powder.
Lightly apply a bit more lipstick on top.
Now you do not have to worry about your lipstick rubbing off.
