5 Simple steps to make your lipstick last all day long

If you have a busy schedule that involves staying out most of the day, then I am sure you would prefer your makeup to stay put all day long as well. Getting your lipstick to stay throughout the day without any retouches can be a task. Hence, here are five simple steps that will make sure that your lipstick lasts all day long without smudging. 

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips with a scrub 

Flaky, dry lips offer little support to colour. Exfoliate your lips gently with a lip scrub to remove flaky patches.

Step 2: Moisturise with a lip balm 

Before applying the lipstick, make sure your lips are well moisturised. Apply a lip balm and leave it on for a while before applying lipstick.

Step 3: Outline your lips with a lip liner 

Outline your lips with a lip liner in order to prevent smudging at the ends and to give your lips a well-defined shape.

Step 4: Apply the lipstick 

Use a brush to apply lipstick. Gliding the lipstick over your lips in one wave won’t make it stay. Use a lip brush to dab on a colour first at the center of both your top and bottom lips. Then fill in your lips staring from the edges to the center.

Step 5: Place a tissue paper and dust some loose powder 

This is your ultimate lipstick retention weapon. After you have applied lipstick, take one half of a tissue paper and press it between your lips. This will help absorb all the excess. Now, take the other half and place it on your lips. Puff loose powder on your lips through the tissue, and then apply a final coat on the center of your lip. 

Maybelline New York Fit Me Loose Powder

It will ensure that your makeup stays put throughout the day. This powder will also seal the colour of your lipstick without giving you a dry powdery effect.
