We always envy the way celebrities have their make up in place for hours together. Most of us, who want our make up to remain, often wonder how do they manage to prevent lipstick from smudging? Even when the lipsticks manufacturers claim that they are smudge-proof, we find it hard to believe. What if we tell you, some easy ways to prevent lipstick from smudging?
Before you even think of applying lipstick, always check if your lips are soft enough. If they are cracked, it will destroy the whole look as the chapped lips give an uneven look and feel to the lips. Opt for a sugar and olive oil exfoliator scrub on your lips to make them soft and supple before you begin applying lipstick.
Moustitization is the key to get fuller lips. Dab generous amounts of lip balm when you don’t have color on. Massage gently, and let it rest for a few hours. When you want to apply color, just wipe off the lip balm with soft cotton.
Lipstick generally spreads to your pearly whites too. To avoid such a scenario, simply slide your index finger through both the lips, once you are done with applying color. This takes off the excess lipstick thereby preventing it from getting it spread from lips to teeth.
Dab powder on a tissue, or use a blush to do the same. This works best when the lip color is glossy. Just sprinkle the powder on the brush and carefully dab it on the lips. Remove the excess powder with the help of tissue powder.
If you hate outlining it with lip liner, use a concealer and outline it. Then, with the help of the outline, carefully apply the lipstick. Take a cream concealer and trace around the outside of your lips with a lip-liner brush, which will help keep the line steady and get it as close to your lips as possible. The concealer will act as a wall against your lipstick, preventing it from smudging across your face.
The above ways to prevent lipstick from smudging work wonders, if followed step by step. So what are you waiting for? Just grab your favorite lip color now, and try this!
