How to make the Lip Stick Last Long & Tips to apply :)

Hey Girls!!

Today I am going to write about the method i usually follow to apply Lip color and share few tips to make it Last Long!!

So lets get started.. :)

STEP 1 - Exfoliate:

Exfoliating the Lips always helps in removing the Dry & Dead skin. Regular exfoliation can help dry lips become moist and plump. :)

The best way is to take the Lip scrub and gently rub the mixture on your lips in circular motions. Rinse the mixture off with Luke warm water. 
We find many ready made lip scrubs in the market these days, But i always prefer using the Home made Lip scrubs like:
  • Olive oil & Sugar Scrub
  • Honey & Sugar Scrub

STEP 2 - Moisturize:

Once you are done with exfoliation,  the lips needs to moisturized with your favorite Lip Balm to lock in the moisture before putting the Lip Colors.

STEP 3 - Line your Lips:

Lining your lips not only helps in preventing the Lip Stick from Bleeding but also helps in giving definition to the Lips. Also it helps the Lip Stick to last longer than it usually does.

You can always choose the shade of the Lip Liner close to your natural Lip color to give a more natural look to it. Or any other shade as per your choice :)

Draw a thin line along the edge of your lips. Start at the center of the upper lip and work outward. 

STEP 4 - Fill in the Lips:

Now apply your desired Lipstick either directly using it or Lipstick brush. Apply the color evenly on the Lips. And make sure to stay within the edges of the Lips.

Now take a Tissue paper and blot to remove the excess color and to even out the texture. You may apply an other coat of Lip color if desired.

STEP 5 - Applying Lip Gloss:

Now this step is optional. You may actually stop at Step 4 if you are not really into Glosses, but to add that extra plump-y  effect you may dab a little gloss at the center of the Lips.

STEP 6 - Highlighting the Cupid's Bow:

When you highlight the Cupid's Bow,  gives an Illusion of  a pout. :)

Your cupid's bow is located right where the M shape of your top Lip is. You can take a bit of your favorite Highlighter and apply a little bit of it right in the middle of the M shape and smudge it on with your fingertip and blend.:)

That's it and you are done :)

Also make sure you do touch-ups by adding the Lip color/Gloss after meals to avoid the Lip Color from fading off. :)

Hope this was helpful and please Comment & share if there are any Tips that you Girls follow :)
