Hey there, Megan from Makeup in the 702 coming at you with another pro tip. How to make your lipstick last all night.
Once you’ve selected the perfect lipstick to wear for your pout, how do you to get it to stay on, through endless kisses and of course a few glasses of vino? Here are some expert tips to take with you. For this experience to work best, use lipstick, not lip-liner. Go ahead, use that red you’ve been dying to try or a deep vamp. I personally love a pink/peachy lip, but ladies, get ready to pull out all those lipsticks from the drawer. You know, the ones you thought would look pretty, but once they were on your lips you hated it! The great thing about these expert tips is that the color the lipstick is in the tube, will be the exact color on your lips. No more guessing games- go for it!
Step One: Prep your surface. Exfoliate! Hydrate! Clean! If you know you’re going to be wearing some color in the near future and want to ensure the perfect canvas.
