Women across the world have asked the age-old question, ‘What are the secrets to long-lasting lipstick wear?’ And we have answered.
When it comes to wearing lipstick that needs to last at its best throughout the day, there are a few techniques that can transform your look from smudgy sorrow to flawless.
Of course, a quality lipstick is your first essential item. Lipsense lipsticks are smudge proof, water proof, and even kiss proof, guaranteeing 6+ hours of wear. There are 72 gorgeous colours to choose from and each Lipsense tube lasts over 190 applications.
To begin your journey to the perfect pout and achieve a long-lasting look in just 1-2 minutes, choose your colour and check out these 7 easy steps.
The first rule of long-lasting lipstick is to to ensure your lips are clean and free from flakes of dead skin. Chapped lips will affect the application and finished look, so it is important to have a smooth canvas to work from!
Try using a lip scrub or even gently exfoliate your lips with a toothbrush and some water to banish those pesky pieces of skin.
Next, it helps to protect your lips by applying a hydrating, non-oily lip balm. Make sure the balm has a waxy consistency rather than a slippery texture as this can cause colour to slide off.
Take a small amount of foundation or concealer on your fingertips and pat gently over your lips, without covering your mouth completely. The idea is to dull your lip’s natural pink tone so that your lipstick shade appears as vibrant as possible.
This technique also helps the lipstick hold to your lips well while also enhancing its colour.
For bolder lipstick shades, try outlining the outer edge of your lip line with concealer to create a barrier and prevent smudging. Be sure to pat the line softly with your finger to blend into the skin. This is a great protective measure for those wild tones that like to slip off your lip line!
Now it’s down to business. Using the color of your choice, line your lips on the inner edge (don’t go outside the lip line!). You can use a Lipsense lipstick colour to create the outline and then wait about 10 – 15 seconds for it to dry.
Apply another layer across the whole lip. If you do mess up (let’s face it, we all do at some point!) you can use a corrector such as the “Oops Remover”which comes with the Lipsense Starter Kit. The remover will quickly take away any errors.
Apply color selectively, focusing on each part of your lips as opposed to swiping straight across. This will create a more even, polished finish. After the second layer has dried, apply a third layer.
When the final layer has dried you can apply gloss to seal the deal and lock in color. Lipsense gloss comes in both shiny and matte styles, so can be worn to suit any occasion.
And there you have it. Now that you know how to apply it, if you want smudge proof, kiss proof and water proof lipstick that LASTS. Check out www.lipsensereviews.com for more information and to check out the amazing range of Lipsense colors.
