Long Lasting Lip Look in 3 Easy Steps
Get a Lip Look that lasts in only 3 simple steps. Let’s take a look at tips to prep, prime and color your lips so the color lasts and your lips stay smooth and moisturized.
Step 1 ~ Prep
Prep your lips with a conditioning lip treatment. I like to include this step as part of my skin care routine every morning to give the treatment a little time to absorb. I also use my lip conditioner before bed as part of my nighttime routine and during the day on days I’m not wearing makeup to keep my lips soft and keep them from becoming chapped.
One of my favorite lip conditioners is the Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment which is part of our skin care line. Our Glimmer Collection has 2 options for prepping lips, the Glimmer Lip Conditioner and the Glimmer Lip Plumper, which plumps lips without stinging or burning.
Step 2 ~ Prime
Lip liner is one of those steps that we are most likely to skip but it is an important step for extending the wear of your lip color. Lining the edge of the lips with a liner like our classic Glimmer Lipliner helps keep your lip color on your lips by preventing bleeding and feathering. I like to fill in my line to give my lip color a good base to cling to so it stays in place longer.
Filling in the lips with liner can also help customize or tweak your color. Instead of using a color that matches your lips, or your lip color you can use a color that is lighter, darker or has a different tone than your lip color. I love to use a liner under a lip gloss to give it a little more color without adding the extra weight of a second lip color.
Step 3 ~ Color
Finish with lip color. I love Glimmer Satin Lipstick because there are now 30 shades to choose from so you can easily express yourself no matter what your mood for that day. If I really need many hours of wear, I go for a matte shade like the Cashmere Lipcream Matte or Mattitude Soft Matte Liquid Lip. When I want a high shine finish I grab a Cashmere Essence Lipcream or Glimmer Lip Glaze.
