4 tips to make your lipstick last longer

1. Exfoliate
Your lips need to be exfoliated, just like your face. This is one of the very first, most important rules to follow. It can be done with a brush with soft bristles (a toothbrush will do the trick). Dead cells on lips will make them chap and peel, not letting the lipstick to stay for long as they shed off when you apply lipstick on them.
2. Lip Liner
Lip liner is made of a dry material and it will not let your lipstick smudge or come out of the lip area.  However, I have personally never used it solely as a “lipliner”.  The only way I use lip liner is:  line the lips, fill in the lip area completely with the lipliner, apply the lipstick.  This is so that when your lipstick does fade a little, there is never a lipliner-line visible! (one of my MU pet peeves!)

3. Blot and Reapply 
First, apply your lipstick. Blot the first layer of your lipstick by using a tissue. This will take off extra lipstick particles.  Then apply another layer.

4. Foundation or Powder
 Powder or foundation on your lips before applying lipstick also helps the lipstick stay on longer.  Both induce dryness into your lips which balances lipstick oil and prevents it from smudging and helps hold the colour in place.
