There are several ways to make your lipstick last longer:

  1. Prepare your lips: Exfoliate your lips using a lip scrub or gently brush them with a soft toothbrush to remove any dead skin. Apply lip balm and let it absorb before applying lipstick.
  2. Use a lip primer: Apply a lip primer or a thin layer of foundation or concealer on your lips before applying lipstick. This helps create a smooth base and ensures better adherence.
  3. Line and fill your lips: Use a lip liner that matches your lipstick shade to line and fill in your lips. This creates a boundary and helps prevent the lipstick from feathering or bleeding.
  4. Apply and blot: Apply your lipstick directly from the bullet or use a lip brush for precise application. Once applied, blot your lips with a tissue to remove any excess oils or moisture.
  5. Layer and set: Repeat the application of lipstick for a more intense color and longer-lasting effect. After the final layer, lightly dust your lips with a translucent powder to set the lipstick and enhance its longevity.
  6. Use lip sealant or setting spray: Apply a lip sealant or setting spray specifically designed for lipstick to keep it in place and extend its wear time.
  7. Avoid excessive lip licking: Try to avoid licking or smacking your lips frequently as it can cause the lipstick to wear off more quickly.
  8. Use long-wearing or matte formulas: Opt for long-wearing or matte lipstick formulas as they tend to have better staying power compared to creamy or glossy finishes.


Remember to take care of your lips by staying hydrated, reapplying lip balm as needed, and gently removing lipstick at the end of the day with a makeup remover to avoid drying or damaging the lips.

Additionally, here are a few more tips to make your lipstick last longer:


Use a lip brush: Applying lipstick with a lip brush allows for more precision and helps to evenly distribute the color. It also ensures that the lipstick is pressed into your lips, which helps it adhere better and last longer.


Layer with a similar lip liner: Before applying your lipstick, use a lip liner that matches your lipstick shade to line and fill in your lips. This creates a base that helps the lipstick stick to your lips and prevents it from fading or bleeding.


Avoid oily foods: Oil-based foods can break down the lipstick and cause it to fade more quickly. Try to avoid greasy or oily foods if you want your lipstick to last longer.


Blot and reapply: Throughout the day, blot your lips with a tissue after eating or drinking to remove any excess oils or product buildup. Then, reapply a thin layer of lipstick to freshen up the color and make it last longer.


Carry your lipstick with you: To maintain your lipstick throughout the day, carry it with you for touch-ups. Applying a small amount of lipstick to the center of your lips and blending it out can instantly revive the color and make it last longer.


With these tips, you can help ensure that your lipstick stays vibrant and lasts throughout the day.
