LIPSTICK TOCK TICK TOCK
Lipstick application about 50 times a day to make it last is something nobody enjoys!
So here are 6 simple tips that will definitely make your lipstick last longer and keep your lips looking pretty, all day long!
Exfoliation is the key to soft lips. Use a gentle lip exfoliator to get rid of the dead cells and flaky patches. You can try using the ENN Kandy Floss Lip Scrub. Always remember to follow it up with a lip balm. This will give you an even base, ready for you to apply the lip colour you want. You can also exfoliate your lips with the help of a soft bristle toothbrush and some vaseline.
PREP ‘EM WITH PRIMER
Primers help you achieve a flawless base. They not only increase the longevity of your lipstick, but also prevent transferring the stain to your collars, glasses and food. The most recommended primers you can check out will be Line And Define Lip Primer By Bite Beauty or MAC lip prep+ primer.
LINER BEFORE LIPSTICK
Wearing a lip liner before applying lipstick not only accentuates the shape of your lip, but it also creates depth. The dry texture of the liner, goes great for binding with any texture of lip sticks. The effect of this combination gives your lips a luscious look that doesn’t wear off.
BLOT IT OUT FOR THE PERFECT POUT
Apply a thin layer of lipstick and use a thin tissue paper to blot it. Remember to be gentle. Too much pressure leads to the entire product coming off. After this, reapply the lipstick to set the formula in, completely. It’s one of the simplest and most effective tricks to have your lips look fresh all day long.
After applying your lipstick, dust off your favourite Compaq or translucent powder with a broad brush on your lips to set your product right in. Reapply your lipstick and that’s it! you’re good to go for the rest of your day. This is an easy way to reduce oil and prevent smudging for long hours.
PURCHASE LONG LASTING LIPSTICKS
The simplest way to make your lip colour last long, is to buy the lip sticks that have long lasting formulas. Some lipsticks come with added primer formulas that can save you the cost and time of purchasing a separate lip primer. The Lakme 9-5 range is the most widely used, recommended and budget-friendly range available in the market that has a unique lip colour for your every unique mood.
