"If you are sad, Add more lipstick and attack!"


It feels pathetic when our lipstick starts getting cakey and dry. Reapplying is an awkward situation when there are meetings to attend or we are in some party, dancing, and sipping on a drink.
Use these simple tips to maintain a longer lasting lip color:

1. Exfoliation

Scrubbing your lips with a toothbrush or some mild scrub takes away the flaky dead skin from the lips and leaves them silky smooth. If you face cakey lipstick try this and feel the change yourself.

2. Pre-moisturization

Apply a lip-balm prior to lipstick application and then a lipliner of nearly the same color as your lipstick to give your pout a base color. Lip-liners stay longer than the lipsticks and adding two coats of color makes it better.

3. Blotting

For those who do not what it is. Blotting means to dry up extra lipstick from your lips with the help of an absorbent material like a tissue. But doing it the wrong way can make the lip color have a shorter lifespan. Firstly, don't press the tissue in between your lips and secondly, don't overdo the pressure part.
The right way to do is- Just dab the tissue lightly on top of your lips. The color inside fades faster and this way, you don't remove more color from the inside than the outside.

4. Powdering

Finish your lipstick with a powder. There are lip powders now available in the market but don't worry just 'dab-dab' your regular talc or a compact powder. But remember just a bit of it and reapply your lipstick with a dab and also if your lipstick isn't having moisturizing effect in it, powdering can be a nightmare so a lip-balm before starting will do the work!
