No one likes to apply their lipstick only to have it wear off in a couple of hours. We spend so much time applying our makeup the last thing we want to do is reapply lipstick every few hours..
Below are some quick tips and tricks to make your lipstick last longer !
- Exfoliate – This is the most important thing you can do for your lips as this removes all the dead skin from your lips leaving new skin cells to grow in their place. This will help keep your lips soft and subtle.
- Lip Balm – Before beginning to apply your makeup put on a thin coat of lip balm of your choice. This will keep your lips moisturized and will stop them from looking dry and cracked. When you are ready to apply your lip products make sure to gently wipe off any excess lip balm.
- Lipliner – Begin by using your favorite lipliner. Once the lips are lined you are going to use the same liner pencil to fill them in. This is extremely important as this will lay the foundation for the lipstick you apply on top.
- Lipstick – Now it’s time to apply your lipstick. One of the things that will help your lipstick look it’s best is to use a lip brush to put on the lipstick instead of applying it directly from the tube. As we age we get small crevasses in our lips, when you use the lipstick from the tube the color lays on the top surface of the lips only. Using a brush allows the color to really get into the lip and helps it stay longer
