Is your boyfriend messing up your make-up?
Have you ever been chilling with your boy, enjoying a cosy movie or a romantic dinner date, and all of a sudden he feels the urge to show his adoration with a big (and in some cases, sloppy) smooch?
You know you should be caught up in the moment and show the world how much you heart him, but all you can think about is how smeared your lipstick is going to look, and how your perfectly placed foundation will look anything but!
This scenario is all too familiar for bh member, Pinkcoco, who started this forum topic, asking if anyone else, “has an issue with boyfriends messing up their make-up?”
Luckily, we’ve got a few handy tricks up our sleeves to help Pinkcoco – and all of you too! – score a smooch, and leave looking just as amazing as you did walking in…
- - Find a lip colour you love that has serious staying power. Maybelline NY Superstay 24hr Lip Color comes in 24 mouth-watering shades and contains a vibrant colour in one end and a comforting balm in the other, and it won’t rub off onto his lips mid-smooch! Alternatively, if you're not one for a super-bold pout, opt for something with just a hint of colour and a whole lot of flavour (that way when he kisses you he won't mind tasting your gloss!). We like Lip Smacker® Colour Kiss Duo in Strawberry Kiss for its subtle red tint and gorgeously fruity flavour. Yummo!
- - Set your flawless face in place with a mineral setting powder. A dusting of Adorn Mineral Cosmetics Perfect Finish Matte Setting Powder will reduce shiny areas and leave you looking fresh-faced and fabulous for longer.
- - Do your perfectly stencilled smoky eyes look more like you’ve just done a few rounds with Mike Tyson after a bit of playtime with your boy? Don’t accept looking less than luscious. A long-wear eyeliner is just what the doctor ordered in this instance, and Beautycycle Long-Wear Eyeliner (with it’s precision pencil) fits the bill.
How do you ensure you look pretty close to perfect after a few smooches with your special someone?
