Rocking an epic pop of lip color can boost your entire look, not to mention your entire mood on a grey winter day. Alas, not all lipsticks are created equal. Sometimes, it’s halfway through the work day and you head into the bathroom, only to discover that your bold red lipstick has faded to a questionable flaky crust. We’ve all been there, right? All of a sudden, you're left with only the outer rim of color behind. Your bold lip has turned into a bold, bold mistake. If only there was a way to make lipstick last all day.
There’s no simple secret to long-lasting lipcolor, unfortunately. Even lip color that claims to last all day long has a tendency to fade away between cups of coffee and board meetings. Without scheduling bathroom breaks on the hour every hour, or whipping out your compact and applying deskside, how’s a girl to make sure her lipstick lasts all day? By adding a few extra steps to her morning routine, of course. Follow these six simple steps, and you too can prevent the horrors of limp lipstick throughout the day. (Because nobody likes a lackluster lip.) Go forth, and may your lipstick last forever.
