How To: Lipstick That Lasts All Day

I

can’t tell you how many pictures I’ve seen of myself where I thought, Why didn’t I just reapply my dang lipstick! So when I stumbled upon Glamour’s article about making your lipstick last, I was all over it. Amy Nadine, celebrity makeup artist to the likes of Lauren Conrad and Rachel Bilson as well as co-founder of TheBeautyDepartment.com, gave Glamour her guide to getting bold color that lasts all day.



Step 1: Apply your lipstick of choice or matte lip pencil over your entire lip area. I prefer tarte’s Lip Surgence or Tom Ford lip color.

 

Step 2: Blot with a tissue by folding it in half it pressing it between your upper and lower lips.  I’m sure a few sheets of Charmin would work just fine here.

 

Step 3: Grab a blending brush and smother it with loose or pressed powder (translucent works best) then totally mattify the entire lip area.

 

Step 4: Apply a second layer of lipstick. For serious precision, use a lip brush  (my favorite is from Estée Lauder).

 

Repeat all 4 steps and enjoy luscious lips that will stay picture perfect all night long.
