Keep Your Lip Color On All Day By Applying Your Products In This Order
If you’re applying lipstick, the expectation is that it lasts all day, but unfortunately, it can easily get smeared or rubbed off. In order to get the perfect lipstick look, you need to know the proper order to apply lip products and how to prep your lips.
The first and most crucial step is lip prep, so start with an exfoliant to buff away dry, dead skin cells so your lips feel soft and plump. The next step is to apply lip balm or a lip mask to get rid of any small cracks in your lips, and a handy tip is using a tinted lip balm the same color as your lipstick.
Let the lip balm soak into your lips and then use a lip liner in the same shade as your lip tint; this acts as a primer for the lipstick. Makeup artist Nechelle Turner says it’s best to “apply lipstick, blot with a tissue, and reapply lipstick,” because this ensures your lipstick will stay all day long.
