Make Sure Your Lipstick Lasts All Day

One thing that frustrates the heck out of me is when my lipstick fades quicker than I expect or hope. I end up having to reapply over and over. I’m someone who likes to set it and forget it, so lipstick is a constant frustration. If you struggle with this too, then here are a few hints and tips that you could try to Make Sure Your Lipstick Lasts All Day

Remove Dead Skin

Make sure that your lips are free from any dead skin cells. You can exfoliate your lips by gently brushing them or just using a tissue that dipped in warm water. This way, all the dead skin can be removed and your lips will look suppler. This provides a much better foundation for your lipstick.


Use Lip Liner

Next thing that you can do is to use a lip liner that has a neutral shade. This can be considered as your lip’s first layer that would help in making the color last for a long period of time. It will serve as the base of your lipstick that will help it to stay on for a longer period of time.


Build Coverage

After you have fully applied your lipstick, blot it by using a tissue to remove excess color. You should then apply a second layer of lipstick and once again, blot it with a tissue to remove any excess. It may seem strange to add lipstick and then wipe if off with a tissue but this method ensures a balanced build up of color, which will last a lot longer than applying one thick heavy layer in one go.


Powder your Lips, Not Just Your Face

The last step to make your lipstick last longer is to pat your lips with loose powder. Do this by using a good quality make up brush. The excess powder can be removed with the use of a tissue, in the same way as you removed the excess lipstick previously. If you are using a glossy lipstick, then you will want to leave this step out. Othewise the powder will leave a cakey or cracked look on your lips, which will not only look unattractive, but will also feel unpleasant.

By taking the time to use these beauty hints and tips, you can help Make Sure Your Lipstick Lasts All Day so that you do not have to worry about reapplying time and time again.
