We all want our lipstick to last longer, Who wants to be topping up their lipstick throughout the day!
It's the biggest complaint with lipstick, Imagine topping up your eye makeup throughout the day because it faded completely and you have to start from scratch! You just wouldn't want to wear it!
Luckily there are steps you can take to improve the longevity of your lipstick!
Start with a primer or a lip balm. If you chose a lip balm remove excess oils with blotting paper or a tissue before starting.

Define the lip shape with a lip liner and then fill in the rest of the lips. Lip liners are waxy and dryer so they last longer on the lips. If you are using a creamy lip liner blot again with paper or tissue.
Lip liner: Rimmel Red Diva
Apply the first layer of lipstick. I would suggest using a lip brush for a sharper cleaner finish.
Lipstick: Rimmel Kate Moss Collection 01

Blot the lips with blotting paper. I prefer using blotting paper then just tissue or the back of your hand because blotting paper only absorbs oils and shouldn't remove as much pigment as tissue.
Blotting Paper: Boots
The more pigment on the lips the longer it will last.
Apply the second coat of lipstick. You really want to use a lip brush here to make sure you stay within the shape you have already outlined.
For an option extra step use a product called Lipcote. It seals in the lipstick helping it to last longer.
Sharpen the edges of the lips with a flat concealer brush.
Concealer Brush: F17 Pointed Tip Camouflage brush
