Em's Tips | How To Make Your Lipstick Last Longer

In honour of #NationalLipstickDay, I thought I would share with you some of my top tips for helping your lipstick to last longer!

1. Prep your lips before application - buff away dead skin cells using a gentle lip scrub (I like the Lush sugar scrubs) or very gently with a clean toothbrush. By exfoliating the surface it will help give lips something to cling on to and will stop any dry patches showing through.

2. Use a lip liner in a similar shade to your lippie to cover your lips entirely. Start with the outline and then fill them in all over. This will give your lipstick a good base and also add long-lasting colour underneath it if it starts to wear off.

3. Apply, blot and re-apply. A two layer process will ensure you get the best coverage and also aid lasting power. Apply a coat of lipstick, blot with a tissue and then re-apply another coat on top.

4. Try Lipcote - a seriously retro product, but Lipcote helps to seal in your lipstick, making it last for hours and hours. It can be very drying , so make sure you top up with a bit of balm on top

5. Use matte finish or satin lipsticks. These will last a lot longer than those with glossy or lighter textures.

If all else fails, make sure you've got a compact mirror and your lippie in your handbag for a top up!

I hope you found these tips useful!
