Today marks day one of the #bellereneebeauty challenge for November! Today’s prompt is long lasting lipsticks.
Here are some of my favourite long lasting lipsticks:
Revlon Colorburst – Matte Balm
“Blush my lips”
Nyx – Soft Matte Lip Cream
Mac Frost Lipstick
The secret to long lasting lip colour is not really a secret. Start by preparing your lips. Exfoliate your lips using a lip scrub or your tooth brush. Scrub all the flaky skin away. Then, apply a hydrating lip balm – make sure it is not oily. Cancel out your lip’s natural pinky colour by lightly dabbing your foundation on it. This will help enhance the lipsticks true colour. Go ahead and outline and fill in your lips with your lip liner making sure to follow your natural lip line. You can over line as well to help create the illusion of bigger and fuller looking lips. Apply your lipstick gently – making sure not to swipe it on. Take a tissue and separate it into two halves. Place one sheet on your lips and dust a translucent powder over the lips lightly, through the tissue with a powder brush. You can stop right here or if you wish you can apply a little bit of lipstick again. And that’s it.
