6 easy steps to make lipstick last longer

1. For soft lips and a smoother lipstick application, exfoliate first.

Make a homemade lip scrub by mixing brown sugar and olive oil. I used Mint Julips Lip Scrub from Lush, $9.95.

2. Moisturize with lip balm. Let it soak in for about a minute, then pat dry.

I used Evolution of Smooth Lip Balm in Coconut Milk, $3.29.

3. Line lips and fill them in fully with a matte lip liner.

If your lipstick starts to wear off, the red lip liner will show. This also prevents lipstick feathering and helps lip color last longer. I used NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Hot Red, $3.50.

4. Apply lipstick.

I recommend using a matte lipstick since it lasts longer and doesn’t budge. I used Mac Cosmetics Lipstick in Ruby Woo, $16.

5. Clean up any messy edges with concealer that matches your skin tone.

I used Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard, $29.

6. A trick to make your lipstick last even longer: place a tissue over your lips and tap translucent powder on top with a brush. This helps seal the lipstick in place.

I used Coty Airspun Face Powder in Translucent, $6.49.

Tip: Matte lipsticks tend to be drying on the lips, so apply a sheer lip balm on top for added moisture.
