A beautiful lipstick shade can do wonders to your entire look. It adds that oomph to your personality that gives you more confidence. It is sort of a game changer when you need ti rush for any last meeting meetings, or when you are too tired of applying full fledged make up. But one issue that we all face is that the lipstick does not really lasts long, and needs touch up after every hours so.
Make lipstick last all day with these helpful makeup tips and lipstick tutorial. You just need a few household items to keep your lipstick from fading:
- Pat a little foundation or concealer over lips. Don’t entirely erase your mouth, but cancel out your lip’s natural pink so that your lip color’s true hue comes through. This also gives it a little something extra to adhere to. If you have a dark skin tone, this also helps enhance the lipstick’s true color.
- If you’re wearing a bold lip color, outlining the outer edge of your lip line with concealer or the NYX Wonder Pencil will create a barrier to prevent bleeding. It’s basically like installing a fence for your lipstick! Outline and tap softly with your finger to blend.
- Take a tissue and separate it into two halves. Place one sheet on your lips and dust a translucent powder like Make Up For Ever HD Powder over the lips, through the tissue. This is a trick you’ll see makeup artists doing backstage at fashion shows. Now you won’t worry that it’s some model torture treatment. This sets the color, without depositing a layer of powder.
