Here’s how to keep your lips looking great all day, so you don't have to re-apply your lipstick throughout the day.
These are the quick and easy tips for lipstick to last longer than ever, it might need an extra effort but your lil effort is really worth it.. Try it once and see!! J
To begin with, these are the products i use to create a longer lasting lipstick. You can use lipstick, liner, balm, brush and powder of your choice:
1. Moisturize your lips before going to bed:
Before going to bed it’s very important to apply balm to your lips because when we sleep we don’t intake any fluids and that might lead to dryness of lips and because of that when you wake up your lips feel rough and dry. So if the base is not clear its obvious what ever you apply on it wont stay for long and it looks so untidy.. So in vest on a good balm, I would recommend you guys to use the Body shop balm its on reasonable price and the products works really well. If you are looking for cheaper ones or if you don’t find any good balm the best option available is Vaseline it contains Petroleum Jelly which will keep your lips fresh, plump, juicy and even protect your lips from drying.
2. Clear the base:
|Lips exfoliating scrub!! Moisturizer and damp tooth brush!!|
So you wake up with a fresh plump lips because you moisturized it the other night, So what next?? While washing your face see if your lips is still rough or not, if so gently use a lip exfoliating scrub or if you don’t have one gently massage with a good moisturizer and lightly scrub away the top surface of your lips with a damp toothbrush to get rid of dull and dry skin cells.
3.Balm to the rescue:
Once your lips is dry apply your favorite lip balm very lightly just so to make a perfect clear base, go for a wax like texture so that your lipstick stays longer if you don’t have one simply use your lip balm lightly and press a thin tissue in between your lips or over your lips so it takes away the excess oil from your lips. If you have lip primer you can use that instead of using balm in this step, but I prefer balm.
|Define your lips with liner|
|create a base color with liner.|
This step is really important. It’s always good to start with a liner to define the line of your lips and fill in lightly so as it will let your lipstick color stays for longer period and also it will make you look whole day as there is less chances of dissolving your lipstick. But there are many girls who don’t prefer using liner if you are one of them it’s ok you can skip it. But yah doing so will give a better result.
5. Main girl:
So with the same or similar shade of lipstick start applying it around the lips till the border you drew earlier. If you know lipsticks won’t stick your lips for long try applying more of Matte texture rather than gloss because the glossy ones are easy to smudge and are more likely to fade on your lips. Even if you are using the gloss lipstick you can blot the juicy like texture with a tissue.
6. Tissue and Powder:
Take a thinnest tissue and place it on your lips and with the use of blush brush dust a translucent powder like Make Up For Ever HD Powder over the lips, through the tissue. If you don’t have one you can even try with a simple powder preferably Johnsons baby powder. This sets the color, without depositing a layer of powder.
7. Reapply the lipstick:
Reapply the lipstick gently; Adding a second layer of lipstick after blotting increases the pigment concentration relative to the creamy ingredients that are the enemies of lipstick longevity.
