3. Prime Your Lips

Just like you prime your face for foundation and powder, you can also do the same for your lips before applying any colour so that it stays set for longer. It’s a multi-step but relatively simple process once you know the order!

β€’ Begin by dabbing a small bit of moisturising lip balm so that your lips aren’t bone dry.

β€’ Draw the outline of your desired lip with a good quality lip pencil. This will help the colour from running as the night goes on. When the outline is done, fill in your whole lip with the pencil. It gives your colour something to adhere to.

β€’ Apply the lipstick of your choice over the lip lined area.

β€’ Now, take a tissue and blot your lips, not too hard but also not too soft. After this has taken away any blotchy excess, lightly dust your lips with a translucent powder. This will help to really set the colour and keep everything in place.

β€’ Nearly finished! The last thing to do is finish that layer of translucent powder with a final coat of lipstick. The trick behind this is that even when the outer layer starts to fade away, you will still have so much more going on underneath that it won’t matter at all! The colour won’t look like it has faded in the slightest, and you will be free to kiss under the mistletoe all night long!
