TOP TIPS FOR LONG-LASTING LIPSTICK
- Always start with a lip liner to line the edges of your lips. This will help stop your lipstick from bleeding or feathering. You can also fill in your lips with the liner. This will ensure that you’ll still retain some colour if your lipstick fades.
- Apply your lipstick in layers, pressing your lips together after each. This will press the pigments into the skin of your lips and help the colour last longer.
- Never forget to blot at the end! And take your forefinger, stick it in your mouth, close and pull your finger out. Both of these tricks will help keep that lipstick off your teeth.
