The last thing you want is your lipstick smudging or it losing its colour after about 4 hours of application. Touching up every 2hrs is almost impossible but there are some tricks that can help your lipstick last longer.
1. Exfoliate your lips
A lot of people forget to do this. This can be done using recommended exfoliation scrubs from dermatologists or using a toothbrush and using it to brush over your lips gently for about 10 seconds and wiping them with a neat towel. This helps get rid of all the dead skin sitting on top of your lips that prevent the lipstick from sinking in and also ensures that the lipstick doesn’t get stuck to any dry patches.
