Recently, I had the pleasure of guest posting for Laura @ A Scottish Lass who owns one of my favourite blogs in the blogosphere (so I highly recommend you go check her blog out!)
So I thought I'd share what I guest posted about here for my readers (:
As a girl, a lip stick is often a must. They come in so many shades and finishes that there's something for everyone! But what most people dislike is touching up during the day.
What if there isn't a mirror? Or if there isn't enough time?
Here are some quick steps to ensure that your lipstick lasts:
1. Scrub it
Use a lip scrub or a toothbrush to gently remove the dead, dry skin. Lipstick won't stick to dry, flaky lips and no matter what you do, it's always important to have a good, clean base.
2. Balm it
Apply a layer of lip balm. Lip sticks can dry your lips out, so apply a layer of lip balm underneath to protect your lips and to keep them moisturized
3. Dab it
Dab a bit of foundation on your lips and it fills in fine lines and give your lipstick something to cling to
4. Line it
Using a lip liner that matches your natural lip color, line and fill your lips to create a base for the lipstick to prevent bleeding. By using a liner that's similar to your natural color, it prevents any major contrast between the liner shade and the lipstick shade
5. Apply it
Apply that lipstick!
6. Blot it
With a tissue, gently blot your lips as it'll extend the wear of your lipstick
7. Layer it
Apply another layer!
8. Seal it
Using translucent loose powder, lightly dust your lips to seal in the colour
That's it! Now you don't have to bring your lipstick out with you and save space in your bag!
