1. You Instantly Rub Your Lips Together After Application:
This action seems to be simply human nature. Weapply lipstick or gloss and our immediate reactionis to rub our lips together to blend and even out theproduct. In actuality, this move emulsifies ourlipstick, which instantly makes it less bright and thinsit out. If you can get out of this habit, you will findthat the wearability of your lipstick is up by about100 percent. Apply your lip product and resist theurge to rub your lips together.
2. Your Lips Are Dry and Scaly:
There are products on the market that will help with this problem and they are not traditionallip balms. Most often, lip balms and chapsticks simply provide a waxy coat that protects the lipsand does nothing to actually get rid of dry flaky lip skin. Lip scrubs are a great way to instantlysee a difference in the texture of your lips. Last week, I tried a miracle product that workedwonders to get my lips back into perfect health after a long Winter. This ground breaking treatment is like a face mask for your lips,
that feels tingly and delightful.
Leave on for a fewminutes and then wipe off to reveal smooth silky lips perfectly ready for long-lasting lipstick.
3. You are Only Wearing One Lipstick:
I am a big fan of at least three lip products at a time. Lipliner, lipstick and gloss is the ultimatecombination to be sure that you have armed your lips with the most color possible. It takesmere minutes to apply these three products, and even if you are the type of person that isdoing this in the rearview mirror, it's worth the extra minute to be sure that you won't have toreapply for hours.
4. You Don't Use Straws:
Are people just guzzling down beverages with reckless abandon and demanding lipstickperfection? If you are one of those type of women then rethink how you are drinking yourlatte or your diet soda. Straws are your friend when keeping your lipstick on perfectly. Is itweird to drink hot coffee with a straw? Maybe. But your lipstick will thank you.
