Wow..look at me keeping up with my beauty related posts!
In the midst of all the Fall decorating, crafting and just being a mommy, it sure is nice to gab beauty with all my beauty loving peeps.
In case you haven't been up to date with what's been going on in my "beauty world", I've discovered a Skin Regimen For My Sensitive Acne Prone Skin, spilled the beans on How Grapeseed Oil Saved My Skin and today my friends, I am going to show you HOW YOU CAN MAKE ANY LIPSTICK LONG LASTING!
Because I know every lipstick loving gal owns a lipstick shade they just adore and they'd wish it stay put longer on the kisser. Or is it just me?
STEPS TO MAKING ANY LIPSTICK LONG LASTING:
1. Apply a long lasting foundation (preferably a matte finish one) or concealer to exfoliated and slightly moisturized lips (too much lip balm and the foundation/concealer -and everything on top of that will just glide off).
This not only gets you a truer color of your lipstick shade but helps the next layer adhere to something other than your lips.
2. Line and fill in your lips with a lip liner- it doesn't have to be a shade that matches your lipstick, it can be a neutral color. Mine was a cheapie from Jordana.
3. Final Step: Apply your lipstick over your lip liner and enjoy a long lasting lipstick!
This tip may not get you a 24 hour stay put lipstick but it sure does last A LOT longer than it would on it's own! You can see how great my lipstick still looked 5 hours later in the photo collage above.
And since I had the barn painted and it was a lovely day outside to take pictures, I though, why not show you my favorite no fuss fall makeup look as well?
There's something about bare eyes with color on the lips (doesn't always have to be bold) that is just so refreshing.
And while smokey plum eyes are fun in the Fall and winged liner is timeless as well, this one is just so easy for this busy mom!
No one will even notice that you "cut corners" on the eyes when they notice your gorgeous lip color. It totally looks like you put more effort into it than you actually did. Shhh....don't tell anyone.
AND you could totally rock this simple makeup look all year long! Here's me rocking it last February! I told you this no fuss look is my fave!
Do you have any favorite makeup tips that you can't live without?
