5 Easy Steps To Longer Lasting Lipstick Wear

Hello Beauties,

Does your lipstick look fabulous when you first apply it but within a few hours and maybe a cup of coffee your lips look like you never spent those 5 or 10 minutes perfectly applying your lipstick? You are not alone but I think I may have found some tips to help you out. Try these tips the next time you are painting your pout:

For advice, Nymag turned to Ella Ceron, the Cut’s social-media editor, who has made lipstick so much a part of her game that her baristas take daily bets as to which color she will wear. Here is her five-step lipstick insurance policy:  She also only chooses lipsticks that she knows to be “Stage-Five Clingers.”

Step 1: lip primer — it gives the lipstick something to adhere to, aside from your lips. Ceron uses Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation. Celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg, whose clients include Rashida Jones, also likes Bite Beauty Line and Define Lip Primer.

Step 2: Choose a lip liner in the same color family as your lipstick. Be sure to line not just the edges of your lips but your whole lip. This is yet another layer of pigment for the lipstick to adhere to. Try something like M.A.C Pro Longwear Lip Pencil

Step 3: Apply your first layer of lipstick and don’t forget to blot off the excess.

Step 4: Now for the trick, which is also endorsed by M.A.C cosmetics director of makeup artistry Romero Jennings: Blot twice. Take a piece of tissue and gently place it over your lips, then use a brush and lightly dust your lips over the tissue with a translucent powder (Laura Mercier makes a good one). The powder will help set your lipstick, and the tissue will keep it from getting all over your lips. Make sure that you’re pressing the color into the lips through the tissue.

Step 5: Apply your second layer of lipstick. To make sure you have a real clinger on your hands, consider the formula. The order of longevity, i matte, cream, liquid, and then gloss. Ceron’s favorite Stage-Five Clinger lipsticks include NARS Audacious, Tom Ford Lip Color (the darker tones, not the glittery ones), and M.A.C matte

If you don’t want to do the full five-step routine, you can always do the first or second steps as prep before applying color, or the fourth or fifth steps only. Also you can apply the lipstick over a liquid stain in the same color family, so that the color fades to a pretty stain as the day goes on.  You can dab a bit of gloss or balm over the lipstick if you want with your fingers, but don’t use a lip balm or else it will smear.

And if you really want to keep the process short, try one of these truly long-wearing lipsticks:
