Why do you have to eat? Why do you have to drink? Why do you even have to speak? And what if you have to kiss…
All these are enemies of your lips… the lips that look so stunning with your rich, sparkling lip colour!
Keeping the lipstick intact is probably the biggest concern for a woman! And why not? It is one of the most high-maintenance-demanding components of makeup!
Here are a few tips that will come really handy in situations where you need to wear the lip colour for long hours.
Power your lips a bit.
Use a bit of face powder on your lips too! This will help your lipstick to adhere to your lips for long. If your lips are too smooth and slippery before applying the colour, the lipstick will also slip off your lips easily! The face power will soak excess moisture from your lips and make way for a long lasting lip colour!
Use a coloured gloss.
Its shine will last and your lips will remain soft and sparkling for long! It will also serve as a protective covering for your lipstick. Now the ‘enemies’ have two layers to rupture before they make your lips go bare!
Regular lipstick works as well!
There is no need to use a particularly long lasting lip colour to make the effect last. Such cosmetics usually tend to suck the moisture from your lips, leaving them dry and itchy. You can use a regular lip color and top it up with a gooey, clear gloss. The mixture of the two textures will itself create a long-lasting effect!
Now, the sky won’t fall apart if you forget to slip your lipstick in the purse or when you don’t find a place to redo your getup in the party! Simply take care of these little tips while doing your makeup and enjoy the party without getting conscious of your smile!
