Love wearing a bold lipstick shade but not sure how to get that colour to last throughout the day? Here are some helpful tips and tricks for smooth application and longevity.
- Prime the Lips. Wear a foundation and/or powder on your face? Rather than avoiding your lips, run your foundation and setting powder across your lips as well. This will give your lipstick something to grip onto a hold throughout the day. If you're a lady who does not wear face makeup of any kind, try reaching for a lip primer. Similar to priming your walls before applying a coat of paint, lip primers help prolong the life of your lipstick.
- Line the Lips. Lining your lips with a clear lip liner OR with a lip liner that matches the shade of your lipstick will prevent your bold lipstick shade from moving outside of your lip line. Applying lipliner to your entire lip area also acts as a grip for your lipstick.
- 2 Coats of Lipstick. Try applying two coats of lipstick to your kisser, instead of one. Trace the upper lip, press lips together, apply lipstick to the bottom lip, press lips together and repeat. This technique not only distributes product to the lips evenly but also pushes lipstick into the lips, allowing lipstick to be absorbed for longer. Works like a charm!
Taking a little extra time to apply your fav shade of bright lipstick will not only look better but will last and last and last. Give it a whirl, gorgeous! Let us know how it goes.
