Are you a lipstick lover but hate constantly reapplying it or worrying if it has smudged or gotten all over your teeth?
As a lipstick fanatic myself, I have learned some great, easy tricks of the trade that have worked really well. These little tricks will ensure that your lipstick stays cemented to your face all day (or night) long.
|Line the outside of your lips with lipliner|
|Lightly fill in your lips with the same liner|
|Apply one layer of lipstick|
|Press your lips on a tissue to blot off excess lipstick, then repeat step 2 again|
Just like powder helps your foundation to stay on your face, powder also helps your lipstick to stay. However, you don't want your lipstick to look powdery so the tissue acts as a light, but porous barrier. Just enough powder will seep through the tissue so that your lipstick will stay longer.
|Dip a face brush into translucent powder|
|Lightly cover mouth with a tissue and pat powder on top of lips|
*NOTE*-A recent product that I found recently which could be used after or instead of step 3 is Lipcote. It comes in a small nail varnish looking bottle and once applied it seals in your lipstick. However, I just bought this product so I am still testing it to see if it really works well. I will do a review of this product once I have worn it more and gotten a better feel for it. However, prestigious magazines like Vogue have raved about it and a lot of celebrities say its their secret to long lasting, beautiful lips.
What are your favorite lipsticks and how do you like to wear them?
