How to make lipstick last longer! My lip makeup routine

Hey “BD beauties”!

In today’s post, I’m going to tell you my personal lip makeup routine! As much as I love to wear lipstick, it’s also a real pain to keep them on as you cannot eat or drink and if you do, you need a touch up. In this routine, I’m going to show how to lock in the lipstick for as long as possible and this would stay on for at least 3 hours!

How to make lipstick last longer! My lip makeup routine

Step 1
Exfoliate! Exfoliation is vital for your lips just as much for your body. Even if you do not see dried lips, using a gentle exfoliant is pretty important. I usually just make my own with sugar and honey. This is to make sure your lip colour doesn’t settle into fine lines or look ugly with all the dried skin being visible.

Step 2
Moisturize! Use a lip balm or even a tad it of petroleum jelly. However do not over apply.

Step 3
Apply a concealer all over your lips as a base. The reason why i do this is to make sure the lipstick appears true to colour and also last long. I have realised that this is the most important step in this routine and this helps the most.

Step 4
Apply your desired lip liner and top it off with the lip colour! Avoid using the lipstick off of the tube as it doesn’t cover evenly in between the lines of your lines. Use a good lip brush.

Step 5
Blot the first layer of lipstick with a tissue and apply face powder over it lightly. This step is to absorb excess moisture and seal in the colour.

Step 6
Apply another coat of lipstick and top it off with gloss!
That’s it girls. I have tried this technique on myself and on many others and found that it an effective way to increase the longevity of the lip colour on your lips. Hope you all try it!

  5. Cool - thanks for the tips. I also have found that certain lipsticks just last better than others and vary brand to brand and shade to shade. It's a trial and error.
