Ten Commandments For Making Lipstick Last All Day

how to make lipstick last all day
  1. Scrubbed lips are where you should start.And the best part is that you can include it in your morning brushing routine.Right after you brush your teeth take  a teeny tiny amount of toothpaste on your brush and scrub your lips with it to get rid of flakes and dead skin.Do this for a week and you’ll notice how soft your lips have become and you won’t be shedding dead lip flakes either.Once in a while you can also use a lip scrub.Simply mix sugar, honey and olive oil and scrub your lips with it.I also like adding a drop of vanilla essence to make it taste better.
  2. Make lip balm your lip best friend(if you haven't already that is).It will help you keep you lips moisturised and help make lipstick stick better than on your dry lips.If you intend to wear a darker shade of lipstick use tinted lip balms to add intensity to the colour.Otherwise you can stick to neutral shades.Apply the balm on wet lips.Wait for a few minutes and then wipe off any excess.
  3. Use a lip liner especially if you are using a darker lipstick.It will help you define your lips and prevent lipstick from feathering.
  4. Apply lip gloss before you put on lipstick.Glosses have a sticky formula which makes lipstick stay on longer.You need not use a gloss in the same shade as your lipstick.Instead clear gloss works better.Just dab on the center of your lips and spread using the wand.
  5. Finally comes the lipstick.You can apply directly from the tube or use a brush.Next use your fingers to spread the lipstick thinly all over your lips.Making sure you get the inner part of the lips as well.
  6. Dab on a little bit of face powder and apply a second coat.Blot out excess lipstick using a paper napkin.
  7. If you are using a gloss don’t apply it all over your lips instead use it on the center of your lips to give a 3d effect.
  8. Try and avoid shimmery lipsticks if you want your lipstick to last longer.Use matte shades.
  9. If you want the lipstick colour to pop apply foundation to your lips while you’re applying it on your face.This will not only bring out the colour but also make your lipstick last longer.
  10. Touch up as and when required.First blot out using a paper napkin.Keep tweezers  handy to pluck any stray flakes.Top off with lipstick.
