Tricks to Make Lipstick Last all Day
Lipstick is a must-have makeup essential that most women keep in their purse and makeup bag. It helps you stand out in a crowd and make you feel more confident and polished. Your makeup and the lipstick you wear says a lot about your personality and it can easily be changed to fit any occasion. While lipstick is a great way to express yourself and create a lasting first impression, it’s sometimes hard to find a lipstick that lasts.
Here are some tips and products that will help your lipstick last much longer:
1. Matte lipstick
Matte lipstick is a great way to achieve a natural looking lip. Mattes can last much longer than regular lipsticks because it is less sticky and can more easily stick to your lips, rather than glasses, cheeks, or food. Rather than applying lipstick every two to four hours, most matte lipsticks can last up to 6 hours, while some can even last for closer to 16 hours, depending on the brand.
2. Lip liner
Lip liner can help you achieve the ultimate lip line. It helps you accentuate the natural curves of your lips and create a barrier in which your lipstick can reside in. There are various forms and colors of lip liners, however, if you are looking to make your lipstick last longer you should try using it before applying lipstick.
3. Lip gloss
Lip gloss is a great way to achieve a shiny look to your lips. It can make your lips stand out in any crowd. While the quality of lip gloss varies greatly, the style and type of gloss that you buy can affect how long the lipstick lasts for. Some gloss that many teenagers wear is designed to last only a few hours at the most, but higher quality and more expensive glosses can last a much longer time. Lip glosses come in a variety of colors, sparkles, and even flavors. If you are looking to switch up your look with a shiny new style you may want to try lip glosses.
4. Hydrate your pout
To ensure that the lipstick you apply to your lips lasts all day you should take good care of your lips and hydrate them each and every day to keep them looking healthy. When washing your face each night you may want to apply sugar scrub to your lips, wash them with a wet washcloth, and lotion them with a natural lip balm. Doing this to your lips each day will ensure that your lips stay hydrated and the lipstick you apply in the morning lasts all day.
5. Lip primer
If you have an important and busy day ahead of you and you want your lipstick to last all day you may want to consider applying a primer to your lips. Primer is not always necessary, but if you have dry lips or are concerned about your lipstick staying on it is a great way to ensure your lips stay colorful all day.
