 If you are one of those people who have to constantly worry about retouching your lips, search no further because on enhancewhatsyours.com you’ll find the top tips for having your lipstick last longer so the last thing you have to think about on a night out is constantly doing retouches on your lips (can be pretty annoying!)

So here’s how to make your lipstick last longer:

Prep your lips:

1. Exfoliate: I can’t stress how important lip exfoliation is for your lips, as you might have saw in my D.I.Y lip scrub, regular exfoliation replaces old cells with new cells which is a great way to keep your lips soft and subtle.

Note: If you’re preparing for a night out you can give your lips a gentle scrub with your toothbrush for a quick/fresh exfoliation

2. Lip balm: Before lipstick comes lip balm, let it settle on your lips to keep them moistened and prevent them from cracking. If there is any excess balm make sure you blot it off.

The nitty gritty:

1.Lip liner: Line your lips starting from the cupids bow and then fill them in with the liner. This will lay a foundation for your lipstick. Here I’m using a lip liner by Inglot which I love because it’s highly pigmented and also has a lip brush at the other end. (It’s so good, I sometimes use it as a lipstick on it’s own!)

2. Lipstick: For the best results, apply your lipstick with a lipstick brush, as it allows the color to really get into the lip and stay on longer. Get a tissue and blot your lips a couple of times to press the color into your lips. After this, go for a second coat of lipstick.

I will be using Rebel by MAC it’s another one of my favorites. And as you can see, the two colors are quite similar so it’s just perfect because the lip liner won’t take away from the lipstick’s true color!

3. Concealer: As we do to get perfect eyebrows, use concealer to tidy up around the lips and give them a clean edge.

Note: I also like to use the highlighter from my Gosh BB Skin Perfecting Kit and apply it to my cupids bow, this will give you and effortless pout!
