How to make lipstick last longer:

Sorry for the lack of posts! I just got over being sick, also quite a lot going on lately. Working on a few more in depth posts this week! ❤ Lipstick can be intimidating to a lot of women. One question I get asked a lot is how to make lipstick last longer. Although some aren't made for long wear, example: sheer & light colors typically don't last long - there are steps you can take to make your lip color last longer than it usually would. The key is layering!

Lip liner first, fill in lips completely - it gives you a base and the first layer of color. Lip liner becomes more essential with darker colors. Reds, plums and berries, deep colors can typically migrate outside of your lip line easier so lip liner not only helps lock in the color, but also keeps it where you want it and prevents feathering & smudging. Then apply lipstick, place a thin tissue/toilet paper to lips, hold and dust translucent face powder onto the paper/your lips. Remove the paper then apply a second coat of lipstick. Blot color, then you're good to go. **Translucent powder is optional. It helps to give a more matte finish.

You can also just blot without powder, apply another coat, then blot again. The reason you do it twice is to lock in layers of color so it lasts longer.

Also, applying a little concealer around lips (typically outer corners) can clean up any mistakes, and help prevent feathering as well.
