I’m a huge makeup addict. I’ve said that before, I KNOW, but I have to say it again because this article is all about LIPSTICKS!

In my opinion, a woman is never fully dressed without a lipstick. It brightens her face, it gives her confidence and when it’s applied properly, it’s the ultimate show stopper!

However, I know that most of my friends just won’t put lipstick because “it fades or vanishes within an hour anyway, so why bother?” Guess what:  I got you covered!

Here are all the steps you need to follow to make your lipstick last all day long:

  • Exfoliate: If you haven’t heard of the importance of exfoliation before, let me just tell you one thing: IT’S EVERYTHING! Preparing your lips is very important so I suggest you buy an exfoliation scrub, or make your own scrub at home. Add two teaspoons of sugar and one teaspoon of honey in a small bowl and exfoliate your lips. Leave the scrub on your lips for about 10 minutes.

  • Line and Fill: Lip liner is recommended by the pros to keep colour from fading. Fill your lips with the lip pencil.

  • Set with powder: Set the lip pencil with your powder. Tap the powder very carefully on your lips so that you won’t mess your whole face!

  • Apply and Blot: Apply your lipstick.

  • Apply your Matte Liquid Lipstick: I just love super matte lipsticks, so I always apply a matte liquid lipstick of a similar shade on my lips. It makes your lips look fuller and makes your lipstick last longer.

  • Blend with your Lip Pencil: Use your lip pencil to blend the colours, fix uneven lines and create the perfect shape for your lips.
