3 WAYS TO SMUDGE-PROOF YOUR BOLD LIPPIE
The greatest enemy of lipsticks: SMUDGE. Keep calm and swipe away, because it’s all about the right lip care and effective techniques to make your lipstick long-lasting and looking gorgeous from day to night.
1. Yes to scrubbing!
Keep your lips moisturized and free from dullness by scrubbing it with sugar-water mix. This makes your lips smoother and allows them to hold color for a longer period of time.
2. Apply foundation.
Pat a small amount of foundation on your lips and consider it as your primer for your puckers.
3. Try the tissue trick.
Get a sheet of two-ply tissue and divide it by two. First, use the first sheet to blot your lipstick after application. Second, swipe another layer of lippie on your lips, then place the other sheet on your puckers. After, gently pat a small amount of setting powder with a fluffy brush on the tissue. This trick allows the tissue to suck extra moisture off your lips to keep the lipstick from smudging.
4. Conceal the deal.
Replace your go-to lip liner with a concealer. Using a lip brush, outline your lips with a concealer before applying lipstick. This serves as a “wall” to keep the lipstick from going elsewhere.
5. Go extra with your bold lippie!
