How To: Make Your Lipstick Wear Longer

Monday, 4 November 2013

Anyone who knows me personally knows I'm a sucker for lipstick. Lipstick has the ability to take a look from boring to brilliant and from day to night.

Now, enough from me. Lets get on with how to give your lipstick extra staying power.

All you need is:
  • Your lipstick of choice.
  • A tissue.
  • Transparent powder (loose or pressed).
  • A powder puff or small fluffy brush.

The beautification process:
  1. Apply your lipstick as usual.
  2. Blot excess lipstick off with the tissue by pressing the tissue gently on your lips.
  3. Apply the translucent powder sparingly on your lips with your powder puff or small fluffy brush.
  4. Re-apply another layer of lipstick.

Done and done! Show off those pretty coloured lips for longer!

Scared to wear red lipstick or other bold colours? This technique should drastically decrease the chances of lipstick transferring or smudging.

Will you be using this technique to lock your lip colour on for longer?

Note: all opinions are my own.


  1. I'm gonna try this as I'm such of lipstick coming off!
