Tips for long lasting color:
Use a lip pencil that matches the natural color of the lips to line and completely fill in the lips. The base helps to hold the color in place. Layer lipstick on top!
Blotting lipstick with your fingers presses color into the lips and will create a stain that will last.
Try using lip pencil on top of lipstick to create a barrier.
A bit of powder or blush patted on top of the lipstick will keep it longer.
Because it’s so much easier to match the lip color than to use a dark color that has to be blended.
When in doubt, wear red.
