Some women manage to keep their lipstick intact all day through, while some of us feel annoying because it might migrate teeth or blouse almost everywhere else within minutes of applying. Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to lock down your lip colour all day.
What you need: Pick your favourite lipstick, similar shade powder blush (close as possible), tissues and a makeup brush that’s fluffy.
Wanna make your Lipstick Stay Longer – Here’s a Secret!
What you have to do: Apply lipstick as you usually do. Then, take a tissue and separate it into two, thin sheets. Use one to blot your lips before applying a final coat of colour. Next, place the unused sheet over your lips. Load your makeup brush with blush and lightly tap it over the tissue to finish.
Why it works: The tissue acts as a filter so you don’t get too much powder on your lips (or sticky lipstick on your brush) and the powder itself absorbs any excess moisture from the lipstick, which helps to set everything in place.
However, you can also use a translucent powder to get this look, but sometimes it leaves a chalky cast behind—whereas blush has the same effect, but with a little bit of pigment.
Bonus Tip: It gives your lipsticks a nice matte finish.
