Apply your favorite foundation and set it with compact to create a flawless makeup base. If you have hyper pigmentation around the mouth area, use a darker concealer to conceal all your imperfections to make your lips stand out. Then, apply your favorite lip balm to moisturize your lips. Moisturizing the lips prior to the lip makeup is a must. It helps in creating an even and neat finish for the lipstick.

Pick a matte lip liner matching your lipstick color. Here, I planned to use a gorgeous bright red color lipstick, so I picked a matte red lip liner. Then, start applying the lip liner at the highest peak of your cupid’s bow and gently fill your entire lip area. Outline and fill your lips with a lip liner prior to application of the lipstick. It will help to increase the longevity of the lipsticks irrespective of the formula or quality.

Now, if you are using a lipstick, then take the lipstick in a thin lip filler makeup brush. If you are using a lip gloss, then use the lip gloss wand like a brush for precise application. Start filling your lips by following the natural curve shape of your lip.

Then, pick up a clean tissue paper and fold it into half. Place the tissue by opening your mouth as shown in the image and gently place it between the center of your upper and lower lips.

Then, press the tissue with your lips. This step might make your lipstick appear uneven, blotchy or faded, but you needn’t worry as we will be fixing it later!

Then, pick a clean eyeshadow blending brush or a small fluffy powder brush with some fine translucent loose or pressed compact powder. Now, gently powder your entire lip area. Slowly press and swirl the powder brush all over your lips till the lips get a completely matte finish. Use a fine textured powder free from shimmer or granules for this step to fix the lipstick for long hours of wear time.

Then, load your lip brush again with the same lipstick and apply another layer of the lipstick over the powder. Do not use your fingers for this step as it doesn’t help in precise and neat application of the lipstick. Use a lip brush to achieve neat and precise application even to the creases and lines of the lips.

Now, pick up a highlighting concealer or a light color concealer. The light color concealer should be at least 2 to 3 shades lighter than your natural skin tone. Start by outlining your entire lip with the concealer using a thin brush. Carefully outline your lips without pulling in the concealer inside your lip area. Then, use your fingers or a sponge and blend the concealer seamlessly for a neat and natural finish. Set the concealer with a compact powder to prevent fading or creasing of the product. This step will prevent feathering or bleeding of your lipstick.

And that’s it! Now, you too can keep your lipstick stay good on your lips for long hours. Say goodbye to frequent reapplication and say hello to forever gorgeous lips!
