Make your lipstick last longer

Hello everyone!

Here’s how to make your lipstick last, so you don't have to keep re-applying throughout the day.  All you need to do is follow these few simple steps.

You will need:
  • lip scrub
  • lip balm
  • nude lip liner
  • your favourite lipstick
  • translucent powder


  1. Lightly scrub your lips. You can use one of my recipes; DIY Simple scrub or DIY Yummy scrub or you could also use a damp toothbrush to get rid of dull, dry skin cells. 
  2. Apply a moisturising lip balm on the lips to hydrate the skin.  Allow the product to sink in for a few minutes before moving on to the next step.
  3. Blot with a tissue to remove any excess cream.
  4. Line and fill in the entire lip with a pencil to create a base for the lipstick to cling to.  Choose a shade that’s close to your natural colour. 
  5. Using a brush, blend a layer of lipstick into the lips.  Apply your first coat, blot with a tissue, and apply again.
  6. Place a thin layer of tissue over the lips and apply loose or pressed translucent powder through the tissue to set the lipstick in place. 

Tip: If you are in a hurry, you can skip steps 1-3.  Just apply, blot, repeat and powder.
