How To Make Your Lipstick Last Longer

Ever wanted to make your lippy last longer? I hear the yes’s now! The key to making your lipstick last longer is a smooth, flake-free surface. Actress Anna Kendrick star of the movie Into The Woods shared her secret weapon below also. Here we go…

1. By using a lip scrub, you can exfoliate and remove any unwanted flaky skin. The Body Shop’s Lip Scuff is great, and Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub is the bomb.

2. After exfoliating your lips and getting rid of the dead skin, we recommend that you proceed with a colourless lip balm and allow it to sink into your lips for a few minutes. Try Living Nature’s Lip Hydrator. The Bonus is you’ll get it free with a Bloom lipstick which is a gorgeous pink that supports the Breast Cancer Network New Zealand.

3. Then, begin the next step by blotting your lips with a tissue to remove any excess balm.

No Bleeding Lips

4. Always use a lip liner to line your lips before applying lipstick; this will prevent the colour of your lipstick from ‘bleeding’ while giving you the perfect shape to fill in your lipstick. No Bleeding Lips Secret Lip Liner ($29) is colourless so you won’t get a ‘hard’ line and it will go with anything!

She told the New York Times:

“I’m not big on lip colour but I like to have a little something. I just ordered a Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain. It doesn’t just give you that bee-stung thing for two seconds; it lasts for hours.”
