Getting Your Lip To Stick.

Did you know that lipstick will stay on longer if you push a small bit of foundation onto your lips? Foundation placed on the lips first acts as a primer and works doubly well if you lightly powder it to set. After setting the foundation on your lips, apply lipstick, blot with a single-ply section of tissue, and reapply your lipstick once again. It’s as easy as that.

For extra bulletproof lips, apply lip liner to the entire area of your lips after setting your foundation with the lightest amount of powder and just prior to your first application of the lippie-then-blot number. Blotting with a single-ply of tissue works a treat because it lifts a large majority of the oils from the lipstick leaving only colour pigment. The last coat of lipstick ensures that you finish up with an emollient and moisture-rich base of gorgeous, pigmented colour. What I also love about this technique is that if you’re unable to reapply your lipstick throughout the day, it will tend to wear more evenly than if you just popped your lippie straight on without priming. With this nifty number in mind, give your little magic bullet a shot. Ooh, and let us know how you get on. As always, we’d love to hear from you!
