Since you’re likely to smooch someone tonight, and wear a bold lipstick (I’m rocking this one), here’s a quick way to make sure your lip color lasts all night:
Apply a layer of your lipstick. Blot it with a tissue. Grab a square of toilet paper and peel it apart so you’re left with a very thin layer of TP. Place that over your lips and dust a translucent loose power over the TP onto your lips. I use Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder, $34. This will add a very thin layer of powder to your lip color to really lock it into place. Finish by slicking on another layer of your lipstick and do one final blot.
And, ahem, avoid getting lipstick on your teeth by quickly puckering your lips around a finger. Slide your finger out of your mouth to remove any lip color that might end up on your teeth. It’s a tried and true trick I use daily. Muah. Happy New Year!
