     1. Prime and Prep

Many of us don’t realize that it is wrong to just smack lipstick on the lips. Ooops! Bet you didn’t know that. Our lips like every inch of our face requires some form of prepping before makeup application. Pamper your lips ladies, no man wants to kiss a dry and chapped looking lip. Applying the Oriflame M & H Gold Sugar Scrub once a week will rid you of that and it also helps to keep your smile soft. This is the first step to attaining smudge free lips.

   2. Moisturize

Always! Always! Always use a lip balm when you don’t have a head turning colour on your lips.  The Maybelline Baby Lips (it tastes good and also makes your lip pinker!) moisturizes the lips for up to 8 hours!! Your lips just like any other part of you needs loves and attention. This is an essential step in the quest to attain smudge free lips.

   3. Powder

A blotting paper is required, but a two-ply tissue can always be used in place of this. Separate the layers of the tissue so you are left with two equally sized, thin pieces. After applying on the lipstick of choice, use one piece of tissue to blot your lips. Add another coat of lipstick, then place the second tissue over your lips. Using an invisible setting powder or a loose powder apply the powder onto the tissue. The powder will absorb the excess moisture of the lipstick and make it last. This is also an important step in getting smudge free lips.

 

   4. Index Finger Trick

After applying lipstick, take your index finger and pop it in your mouth, then pull it out. The excess lipstick will come off on your finger rather than your teeth. Easy! Smudge free lips!

 

  5. Lip pencil or concealer

Lip liner is to lipstick what primer is to foundation or a base coat is to nail polish—some think it’s not crucial, but it does make your lipstick look better and last longer. Hall-Scarmana suggests that “pairing your lip pencil with a lighter, highlight pencil will keep the lip line clean and can create lift and definition to the lip.” The BH Lip Liner offers a variety of lip liners for every colour of lipstick you have. Since most girls would rather not use a lip liner, I’d advise that you use a concealer. The Milani Secret Cover concealer cream is purrfect! Using this concealer, trace around the outside of your lips with a lip brush (the small head will ensure a precise application). The concealer will act like a wall against your lipstick, preventing it from smudging across your face. This is the final step in attaining smudge free lips.
