Having lipstick that fades or smudges can really ruin the look that you worked so hard on. I hate having to constantly touch up my lipstick throughout the day, and sometimes I just don’t even have the time.
I learned the secret to lipstick that lasts all day and it has made me feel more beautiful and confident throughout my busy days.

Getting lipstick that lasts is actually very easy and doesn’t have to take forever to do. It is all about the prep work and taking great care of your lips.
My lips get very dry, especially during the cold months, so I started using an overnight lip treatment to keep them moisturized and healthy. This has really had an impact on my beauty look because the lipstick doesn’t feather as much as it used to.
This is the routine I use every morning to get flawless looking lips. This will give you the color and vibrancy of lipstick that lasts and save you a lot of frustration.
I like to take my concealer and trace around the outer edge of my lips, this creates a barrier that will help prevent your lipstick from bleeding and smearing all over your face.
I like using a crayon concealer for this as it is just easier to apply. Once I trace around my lips, I will then take a blending sponge and press it into my skin and blend. You can also use your fingers to blend if that is easier.
Next, apply some lip balm if your lips are dry and wait for it to be absorbed. I find that waxy balms like Burt’s Bees work best.
Once the balm is absorbed, add a thin layer of concealer over your entire lips. This gives your lip color something to grip onto so it won’t fade.
Once the concealer is on, apply your chosen lip color following the natural shape of your lips. You can make your lips appear fuller by going just outside of your lip line, but not too much!
Once you have applied your lipstick the way you want it, remove any excess moisture by blotting. This helps prevent feathering.
Fold a tissue in half and lightly pat it over your entire mouth. Add a second coat of color and press your lips together to set.
I also like using a translucent finishing powder to help hold the color in place. Take a small blush brush and lightly dab some on your lips.
That is really all there is to it. I rarely have to touch up my lip color throughout the day. Lipstick can be expensive so and we want that to last.
