Every woman loves to put on some lipstick and flaunt her impeccable lips but have you ever wondered how you could make your lipstick last for the whole day and not wind up that faded lip line?
Many women think that all they need to do to make their lipstick last longer is to buy expensive lipstick, and in some cases, it might even burn a hole in their pocket. But it is not always necessary to purchase expensive lipstick to make it last longer.
There is a long list of tips and tricks that you can use to make your lipstick last longer than you expect, and this is what we will discuss in this blog post.
Here, we have discussed a step-by-step process to ensure that your lipstick lasts longer than you expect.
Buy matte lipstick
Instead of searching for a lipstick that lasts all day, you should start looking for matte lipstick if you want the lipstick to last longer. All the lipsticks in the market with a matte finish are much dryer, and therefore, moisturization is an essential aspect of matte lipstick. But they are almost unnecessary unless you are used to applying lipstick after every three hours.
All the matte lipsticks have a base of sticky wax, while in all other lipsticks, a slippery oil is used, which makes regular lipsticks less efficient than matte ones. If your lipstick doesn’t last longer than even one hour, be sure it is cream-based lipstick.
Many women search for a lipstick that lasts all day instead of using some common tips and tricks, and one such piece of advice that you can use is to exfoliate your lips to make your lipstick last longer. There is not much effort and tool required to exfoliate your lip, as all you need is a simple toothbrush and some lip scrub.
No need to buy expensive tools to exfoliate your lips; take your old toothbrush and start scrubbing those lips gently to say goodbye to dry lips. It is a simple yet effective step to keep your lipstick last longer.
Use a lip balm
It doesn’t matter whether you are applying lipstick or any other type of makeup on your face; you must apply lip balm on your lips right after you wash your face. Using lip balm will help your lip stay moisturized, and thus it will be able to soak more lipstick.
In addition to this, applying lip balm will also help your lips to say goodbye to flaking. But make sure to use good quality lip balm.
Apply lip liner
If you are serious about making the lipstick last longer and don’t just want to search for a lipstick that lasts all day, you should start using a lip liner. Just choose a lip liner shade closer to the shade of your lips. Don’t try to experiment with odd colors like black or green while choosing lip liner.
Apply the first layer of lipstick
For applying the first layer of lipstick, use the same lip brush to apply the lip liner. After applying the first layer, you must blot to remove the excess oil from the first layer of lipstick.
Apply the second layer of lipstick
Before applying the second layer of lipstick, you can apply some powder on your lips to make the lipstick last longer. And instead of using a brush, you should apply the second layer of the lipstick directly from the tube.
By just following these six simple steps, you can make sure the lipstick lasts longer than your expectation, and the best part is you won’t have to buy an expensive lipstick while following these simple steps.
