Here is the tutorial for applying long lasting lipstick
Prepare: The first thing you need to do is prepare your lips in such a way that ensures that the lipstick lasts for a longer time. To do that apply a colorless lip balm on the lips, wipe it off and then use the brush to gently remove any dead skin from your lips.
Outline: The next thing you need to do is use the lip liner to carefully outline the lips. You can give a cupid like curve to your upper lip in case you feel the need to do so. For a fuller looking lip, you can create an outline slightly on the outside of a lower lip or make the lips look thinner by drawing the line on the inside of the lower lip.
Use brush to fill in the outline: Now use the lipstick brush to paint in the lip color. Do this slowly so that all the areas within the outline are fully covered. Doing this will also ensure that the lipstick does not look smudged.
Apply powder: At this stage, put the tissue paper carefully on the lips. Press gently and through the paper, apply loose powder on the lips. Then brush off the layer of powder through the paper. This step ensures that the first layer of lipstick sets well on the lips.
Apply the final layer of the lipstick: Once the excess powder is brushed off, you will have to go for the final layer of lipstick. Again, apply this layer of lipstick with the lipstick brush. Take time to apply slowly so that all the area is properly covered.
Applying lipstick this way will ensure that your lipstick lasts longer. But one of the things that you have to consider while purchasing lipstick is to for quality lipsticks. While most girls tend to concentrate on the color, they do not pay much heed to the quality of lipstick. To ensure that you get a good finish and the lipstick longer, picking a lipstick of good quality is as important as how carefully you apply it. So do consider these points when you are out there looking for lipsticks the next time you go for makeup shopping.
