Heading for a party tonight?
Worried about your blood red lipstick betraying you and vanishing before the party is over?
Looking for tips to make it last longer?
You’ve landed at the right place! Here are the best hacks to make your lipstick last longer than ever!
Leave everything aside and start with a lip exfoliation session. In order for your lipstick to stay longer, it needs a nice, smooth and plain surface to stick to. Now, if you have dead skin cells on your lips, your lips would look rough and dry.
Get rid of the dead skin cells by scrubbing them off with a mild scrub made with sugar. Scrub in round circular motions so as to get the best results.
Once you are done scrubbing, it’s very important to save your lips from getting dehydrated. If you fail to do so, you’re probably making room for the cracking and feathering of your lip color beyond the lip line.
You can avoid this by using a lip primer. A good primer will not just hydrate your lips, it will further provide a smooth, polished surface for your lip color to adhere to.
Reverse line your lips:
You must be wondering what that means, right?
Well, to reverse line your lips means, to apply two types of lip liners. Before you apply a liner that matches your lip color, apply a nude lip liner so as to outline and define your lips in the best possible manner. The trick not only helps you to line your lips, it further helps prevent feathering and smudging of your lip color.
Stain your lips:
Well, yes! You heard that right.
As a matter of fact, lip stains last longer than your traditional lip colors. So, it’s advisable to pick a lip and cheek stain, similar to the shade of your lip color and apply a light layer on both the lips. A lip stain will help your lip color stay in place for longer, that too without any regular touchups!
Apply the lip color:
Once you’ve applied lip stain, Use a lip brush to dab on your lip color. Start from the center of your upper lip and move to the edges. Repeat the procedure for the lower lip as well. Make sure that you fill your lips properly.
Blot and reapply:
That’s how you finish!
After you’ve applied the lip color, place a tissue over your lips and dab some translucent powder using a makeup brush. Once done, reapply your lip color and repeat the blotting process once again!
Voila! You are all set to rock the party tonight sweets!
