Step-by-step guide to make your lipstick last all day

Lipstick can jazz up any outfit. Whether you go with a classic red lip, a more natural look with a brownish lipstick or bold and bright with hot pink, purple or blue lip, it’s bound to make a statement. The problem? Checking for smudges and reapplying your lipstick every few minutes. 

We women have a lot to deal with and we don’t have time to worry about our make-up. That’s why we compiled this step-by-step guide to make your lipstick last the whole day:

  1. Exfoliate your lips with a sugar scrub and a toothbrush before hydrating it with some lip balm.
  2. Use a lip liner the same colour as your lipstick to line and fill your lips. 
  3. Apply your lipstick (matte lipsticks tend to last longer), blot your lips with a tissue and reapply your lipstick.
  4. Set with a translucent powder to make sure it’s smudge-proof.
  5. Top up with a thin layer of lipstick or lip balm if it starts to feel dry.
