  1. Exfoliate or scrub your lips.

Dry, cracked and chapped lips don’t let lipsticks stay. In addition to a bad canvas to paint your lip color on, dry cracked lips become more visible after you have applied colour. Use a lip scrub to gently scrub of dead cells.

  1. Apply lip balm.

If your lips aren’t moisturized, they will look bad minutes after you have applied a lip color. Apply a thin coating of a light lip balm and wait for 5 minutes for them to be absorbed. This step is also very important if you are applying matte lipsticks because they don’t have any moisturizing agents.

  1. Apply your lipstick.

  1. Use a tissue.

Press a tissue paper in between your lips as if you are biting it. This will remove excess lipstick and will help build a long lasting layer of lipstick underneath.

  1. Apply the lipstick again.

Some other tips:

  • Keep in mind that the creamier, glossier & sheerer the lip color, the lower its longevity. Choose matte over creamy, lipstick over gloss and bright & pigmented shades over sheer colors.
  • After you’ve eaten something just blot your lips with a tissue for any excess grease, food crumbs or oil that can dissolve the pigments in the lipstick.
