My Beauty Fix: Fading Lipstick

Hi guys,

Welcome to the start of the 'My Beauty Fix' series, I realised the are lots of little beauty problems that should be easy to fix if you know what to try. I want to share with you some of my little tips and tricks that I use on a regular basis in the hopes that I can help anyone that suffers with the same frustrating problems I do.

If any of you have any little annoying beauty problems that you would like fixed then please leave me a comment or email me and I will do my best to find you a solution!

To get started, I thought I would pick a big problem that I know effects lots if people to get the ball rolling.

Ok, so we all look great when were sat in front of our mirror getting ready at home; prepped, primed and looking gorgeous. But if you're anything like me as soon as you get in the car and check yourself in the rear view mirror you notice your lipstick has worn off already and all that time you spent getting that perfectly shaped pout was all a waste as now your back to au naturelle.

If this is you, then here are my quick tips to making sure your lipstick lasts longer than you do on a night out!

Before we start, make sure you have exfoliated all the dead skin off your lips and have moisturised them well. Starting with well prepared lips can make a big difference.

Step One:  Line your lips! Line your lips and fill them in using the lip liner, this will create a sturdy base for your lip colour to cling to.  Whether it is a matching lip liner to the lip colour you are about to apply or a clear liner (great products that are out in the market now). 

Step Two: Apply your lipstick! This is pretty straight forward, but I like to use a brush to do this as it gives me more control of the product and helps it glide on in the right places.

Step Three: Blot! Using a clean tissue, rest it between your lips and press down.

Step Four: Repeat steps two and three! That's right apply and blot once more, even twice if you want to.

Your lips will now be piled high with beautiful lip colour that will stay on for hours! But for extra staying power try my Super Step five!

Super Step Five: Now that your lips are applied and looking luscious, take a tissue and separate so that you are only using 1-ply rather than 2 or 3 (this will mean it is pretty much see through, but it is what we need!) hold this 1-ply of tissue against your painted lips and brush translucent powder onto your lips through the tissue. This will set the colour without getting lipstick on your brushes or loose bristles stuck to your lips but will leave your with a smudge proof pout!

Go on try it! You'll be amazed and it will shock you to have no lipstick marks left on your glasses (or boys!)

Happy kissing everyone!
