The Only Lipstick Tip You'll Ever Need
Tired of reapplying your lipstick at least ten times when you're out?
Put it away, even leave it at home!
This is the only lipstick beauty tip you'll ever need again...
Firstly the word you should remember is... BLOT!
Scrub lips with a .. wait for it.. lip scrub!
You can get snazzy ones but really, it's just sugar scrub. So save your five pounds and exfoliate with homemade remedies!
Now your lips are prepared, they need a little softening. Use a balm to moisturise your lips - but not an overly wet formula. A hard-based balm like this Maybelline minty marvel (for just £5!) ..
Now your lips are kissably soft, they're ready for the day!
Some may want to stop here - but the blog post is all about keeping your colour on.. So we shall continue..
Apply your favourite lipstick of choice as you would, coating evenly and ensuring the nooks and crannies of your skin is filled with colour.
The most important step.
Take a piece of thin tissue and dab lightly on the lipstick coat you have just applied at step two - Usually a square of the best works perfectly. (Yep, toilet roll!)
Now apply another layer of lipstick.
Think of it as taking the cream off a trifle - and adding another layer of sponge before putting the cream back on top. It makes it stronger and last a lot longer.Blotting will take off the sheen and moisture from the surface and leave you with the good, sturdy base that your lipstick is based on.
Now you're ready to go.
Kiss, drink, eat, chew; your lippy will hang on for dear life!
