Tricks to Make Lipstick Last All Day

Are you constantly checking your lipstick all day long and reapplying it all the time? You shouldn’t have to run to the ladies’ room every hour to keep your lipstick looking perfect. With some simple tips, you can make your lips look amazing all day long.

Start with Smooth Lips

The healthier your lips are, the better the lipstick will hold. Exfoliate your lips with a sugar scrub once or twice a week at minimum. Make sure you’re moisturizing with a balm. This will keep your lips soft and healthy, and prevent cracking and flaking that will wreak havoc on your lipstick. Sephora makes lip balm and scrub that work together to help your lips stay beautiful.

Use Lip Liner

The secret to stay-all-day lip color? It’s lip liner. You can choose a shade that will perfectly match your lipstick color so the line isn’t visible, but this is a great way to keep your lipstick in place. Completely line your lips with a lip liner that’s hydrating and water-resistant, like the Maybelline Color Sensational Cream Liner. If you’re worried about visible lip liner, you can get this liner in a clear shade.

Apply and Set

Once your liner is on, blot your lipstick into place and smooth it across your lips to get perfect, even coverage. Use a moisturizing lipstick, like something from the e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick line. It’s available in a huge range of pretty lip colors.

After your lipstick is on, set it by applying a smooth, light coat of powder to your mouth. This can also be applied with a tissue. You only need a very light touch of finishing powder, like Nyx Professional Makeup HD Finishing Powder. It comes in a translucent shade that won’t affect your lipstick color.

All Day Lipstick

Healthy lips and good technique are all you need to get gorgeous lips that look amazing all day long — very few ladies’ room breaks needed. Use these simple tips to get all day lipstick, and get a gorgeous look every time.
