Almost every lady wants longer lasting lipstick. While it isn’t that much stress going to the ladies to touch up on your looks at an event, most would rather do without this.
So if you want lipstick look that lasts all day here are six tricks you should try. They are simple to effect and promise quick results.
Get Healthy Lips
Long lasting lipsticks starts with having healthy lips. If your lips are chapped, cracked, or dry, they won’t look pretty with any lipsticks and will wear off quickly too.
To get healthy ones, apply a lip balm lightly just before you go to bed each night to get your lips looking and feeling fresh and supple in the mornings.
Exfoliate once week to get rid of dead skin on your lips. Doing this ensure they remain healthy enough to retain colour for longer.
Use a Lip Primer
A primer performs three functions when applied:
1.It heightens the effect of whatever cosmetic is applied on it.
2.It increases the staying power of your lipstick, making it last longer.
3.It also makes your lips appear fuller.
Apply a thin coat of this primer over your lips just before you apply your lipstick to multiply the intensity of the lipstick.
Apply Foundation or Concealer
You can opt for a smear of foundation or concealer in place of a primer as they perform the same function. Apply a thin film of foundation or concealer to increase the staying power of your lipstick.
Blot and Re-apply
Apply a first layer of lipstick then blot with tissue paper to remove any excess oil or emollients. Next, apply a second layer to increase the lipstick concentration and staying power.
Choose a Good Lipstick Brand
There are a few lipsticks brands that promise long lasting results. You should opt for one of these as most deliver on their promise.
