5 Quick And Easy Ways To Make Your Lipstick Last All Day 


Longer-lasting lip makeup is the goal of every woman. Nothing is quite as disappointing as having smudged lipstick right after sipping on your favorite cocktail, or taking makeup breaks in between dinner to reapply your lipstick. Luckily for you, there are ways to make your lipstick stay longer to keep that fresh makeup look on all day long and we are here to keep you hooked on all the details. Can we get an amen!

That lipstick that sticks closer than a sister, stays put after a drink, meal, and even a kiss is what we all secretly crave. It’s almost like a secret weapon that every girl should have because after staying at home for this long, nothing should come in the way of your plans. Absolutely nothing.

So, here are a few ways to make your lipstick stay all day…

#1. Exfoliate before applying lipstick

When dead skin is layered up on the lips, applying anything else only makes it appear worse. Using a sugar scrub to exfoliate before putting on some lipstick allows it to stay longer and look better.

#2. Use a primer

A primer creates a barrier between your skin and the makeup applied. It’s worth pointing out that this naturally holds the lipstick in place and smoothens out the skin. In the absence of a primer, some makeup experts have vouched for concealers to be able to pull off the same staying effect.

This involves meticulously coating and recoating with a brush to make lipstick stay longer, as opposed to slathering it on directly.

#4. Blot and blot again

After applying lipstick, dab a thin layer of toilet paper or blotting paper with some powder on the lips, then remove the toilet paper and glide on some more lipstick. For maximum effect, repeat the above process a few more times. This is the ultimate layering.

#5. Setting powder

Apply a little amount of translucent finishing powder to set the lipstick in. The trick is to apply sparingly, in order to avoid cakey lip makeup. (Note: This process is not advised for individuals with dry lips because applying powder could further dry up the lips).
