Hello Lovely Unicorns!
Follow these five easy steps to get lip color that won't fade through the day or night!

The Final Look
Some things to take note of before we begin.

 For long lasting lipsticks I usually stick with highly pigmented colors that are either neutral or super bright. If the neutral shades fade it's not as noticeable and the brights tend to stain your lips.

Also avoid oily or greasy foods, I wore the look above to a Ramen dinner party. My meal was to die for but all of that chili oil meant my lip color was gone with the first spoonful.

And finally, use a product that clearly states its long-wear in the title. There's no reason to waist your time with anything else.


It's important to have a smooth surface for the color to stick to. I usually use this lip balm from e.l.f but any exfoliator that is gentle enough for your face will work in a pinch.


Long-wear lipsticks can be really drying so it's important to apply them over super moisturized lips. In the winter months I swear by my Carmex but there a dozens of other great products on the market. Also remember oil is not your lipstick's friend so you won't be able to moisturize after you've applied your color.


Pick a lip liner that is either close to the shade of your natural lip color or one that is slightly darker than your lipstick. In feathered strokes, outline both lips, then fill it in. 


Apply the thinnest layer of color possible. If you're using liquid color, wipe most of the product off of the applicator. If you are using a solid lipstick, apply with a lip brush.


Let you lip color set for about a minute, then blot with tissue or toilet paper. Try to use something that won't leave little bits of tissue on your lips.
