Lipstick staying power.


No one wants to apply lipstick only to have it wear off in a couple of hours. We spend so much time on makeup the last thing we need to do is reapply lipstick every few hours.  Getting the most wear from your favorite lipstick is a must.

Here are some alternative ways of extending your lipstick lasting time.

Exfoliate – This removes all the dead skin from your lips leaving new skin cells to grow in their place. This helps keep your lips soft . You can easily do this by combining equal parts of sugar and honey and using a toothbrush to gently scrub your lips. Do this once or twice a week to keep your lips soft and kissable.

Lip Balm – Before applying makeup put on a thin coat of lip balm of your choice. This will get your lips moisturized and keep 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 – Using your favorite lipliner,  begin at the Cupid’s Bow of the upper lip and trace the outer part of your lips. Once the lips are lined you use the same liner pencil to fill them in. This will lay the foundation for the lipstick you apply on top.

Lipstick – Use a lip brush to put on the lipstick instead of applying it directly from the tube. Using a brush allows the color to really get into the lip and helps it stay longer. Dip the lipbrush into the lipstick, and pack the color onto the lips to get a sort of stained effect. Take a tissue and blot your lips a couple of times to really press the color into your lips, when done blotting apply a second coat of color.

Concealer – To help clean up around the lips and give them a clean edge, use a concealer like MAC Studio Concealer to clean up the edges.

Having amazing lips with color that will last is easy, these simple steps will make sure your lips stay looking their best all night.
