Eating, kissing, chatting on the phone. There are many behaviors we engage in each day that take away the lipstick we have painstakingly applied. But fear not, long lasting lipstick is still achievable.
The secret to long lasting lipstick is in the application process. Here’s how to properly apply your lipstick when you need it to stay put.
Prep Your Pout For Best Results
First, be sure that your lips are in prime condition to receive lip color. When you shower or wash your face, take a washcloth and gently exfoliate your lips to remove any dead skin cells.
Then, use your favorite lip moisturizing cream to lock in hydration and help your lipstick last longer. A rich formula is L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm. This luxurious stick prevents chapping and flaking.
Line Your Lips To Make It Easy
Next, stain some color onto your lips with a lip liner. The right formulation goes on smoothly so you can apply it with ease.
A great selection is Jane Iredale Lip Pencil in Berry, since this color flatters all skin tones. It coordinates well with almost every shade of lipstick and is easily applied and will last a long time.
Carefully outline your lips, starting at one corner, tracing just inside the top lip, stopping at the other corner, and then finishing across the bottom lip line. If you want to make your lips look bigger, you can even draw just outside your lip lines.
Then use that same color liner to carefully fill your lips in with color, shading the surface completely. Try to apply it as evenly as possible, and if necessary, use a lip brush or your finger to smooth out the liner to a uniform level.
Cover With Color
You then need to apply your lipstick of choice over the colored-in lip liner. Again, it is important to use a lipstick with the right consistency so it can glide over your lips.
bareMinerals BAREPRO Longwear Lipstick is the choice for anyone who wants an incomparable formula in a gorgeous shade of Cranberry. This rich berry hue goes from day to night and gives you an elegant look. Due to its high quality formula, it is an excellent long lasting lipstick.
Carefully apply the lipstick, staying inside of the lines you have drawn. Then gently blot your lips with a tissue, barely touching the tissue to your lips, before applying a second coat.
Finally, for luscious, dramatic lips you’ll love Jane Iredale Lip Fixation Lip Stain in Cherish, a bubblegum pink lip stain with sheer frosted lip gloss. No petroleum is used in this formula, so you’re left with intense color and smooth lips.
This lip stain is dual-ended, so you get to decide if you want to use just the stain, just the gloss or both. Enjoy long lasting coverage as Lip Fixation Lip Stain Cherish doesn’t feather or smear. Avocado oil, jojoba oil and beeswax work together to provide hydration.
