Who doesn’t want their lipstick to last forever, but as distant a dream this may be, you can certainly make it last longer than usual. Kiss-proof (or smudge proof) lips come handy not only on a date night(ahem) but also on any given day whether you are at office, hanging out with friends for brunch or letting your hair down at a party. Here are some tips to ensure that your fav lippy survives a meal and a few drinks and still go on to make you look fabulous.
Exfoliate and moisturiseApplying lipstick on dry, flaky lips can spell disaster. If not moisturised, the crack may become prominent and show through the layer of lipstick making it look quite ugly. Start by scrubbing your lips clean of loose skin and then moisturising with a lip balm at least 10 minutes prior to lipstick application. This ensures that your lips stay supple and lipstick doesn’t peel off.
PrimePrimers are used to create a smooth canvas on the skin for makeup application. Using a on the lips will keep them hydrated and provide polished surface for the lip colour to adhere to. Just dab some primer on your moisturised lips and smooth with a finger.
ConcealA concealer’s job is to even out the skin tone and if you have pigmented or uneven toned lips, a concealer can be of great help. Applying a thin layer of concealer on the lips will bring out the true colour of the lipstick and also help it stay on for longer.
Lip linerLining the lips along the edges ensures that the lipstick doesn’t bleed or feather. Also, it makes it easier to apply the lipstick within boundary. You may also fill in the lips with the lip liner before layering on the lipstick for a better base. Fret not if you do not have same coloured lip liner as your lipstick, you can go for a nude one instead.
Blot away excessLayer your lip colour for better colour pay off and for durability. After applying the shade, and blot away extra colour by gently pressing down a thin tissue paper on the lips. Apply another layer of lipstick and do it again it needed. Another trick is to gently dust the tissue with translucent powder before applying lipstick again.See More: Glow to Glamour Fixing Powder
