Create Long-Lasting Lip Color That Can Endure Dinner and Cocktails

June 20151916Views

When it comes to wanting a lipstick with staying power, it’s a common concern among those of us who desire lasting color – whether it be ruby red, fuchsia pink, or blushing coral. But two culprits that can wreak havoc on a pretty pout are eating and drinking. Since both are essential to life, we can’t just opt to omit them from our daily activities, but there are steps we can take to ensure long-lasting lip color, even after a nibble or sip.

Lip Scrub

Exfoliate lips with a scrub at least once per week to smooth lips and prevent flaking, so color will adhere to lips. Product to try: Fresh Sugar Lip Polish


Lip Primer

Apply a lip primer to create a smooth canvas for color. Product to try: Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil


Translucent Powder

Dust translucent powder on lips to create a gripping effect. Product to try: Dermablend Professional Setting Powder


Lip Liner

Line and fill lips with a lip liner to prevent the lipstick from bleeding and to intensify color. Product to try: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Colour Pencil



Use a matte lipstick with a long-lasting formula. Blot excess with a tissue. Product to try: Marc Jacobs Beauty Kiss Pop Lip Color Stick
