4 Easy Ways to Make Your Lipstick Transfer Proof
We’ve all been there. Having touch-ups every now and then every time our lipstick leave stains on our cups, food, straws, tissues – literally everywhere! Frustrating isn’t it? I definitely know how you feel, that’s why I came up with these ways to make your life easier! Here are 4 easy ways to make your lipstick transfer proof:
- Use a lip liner
Lip liners have a drier texture compared to the creamy base of a lipstick. The formula in lip liners makes your lipstick stay longer on your lips and make it transfer proof. Before applying your lipstick, apply lip liner on the outline of your lips. Make sure that you choose a shade that’s nearest to the chosen shade of your lipstick or to a neutral shade. Then, fill in your lips with the lip liner. This will also make your lips stand out and be more noticeable. Talking about, hitting two birds with one stone!
- Blot and Powder Up
This is an old-age trick, but totally works every time! After applying the first coat of your lipstick, blot it using a piece of tissue paper. Remember to gently press your lips together between your lips and not forcefully blot it, as this will remove your lip makeup entirely – we obvi don’t want that to happen. This technique absorbs the extra oiliness and moisture and makes your lipstick last longer. You can now add a second and third layer of the lipstick. Don’t forget to blot every time you add a layer! As a finishing touch, add some translucent powder on your lips to finish the sealing formula. Voila! You’re all set!
- Use a long-lasting formula lipstick
Choosing your lipstick is a crucial decision. I bet every girl can relate to this. If you want to achieve that transfer-proof lip makeup effortlessly, I highly suggest that you choose a matte formula lipstick. This kind of lipstick has a proven long-lasting formula compared to the creamy based lipstick. So when you visit your favorite cosmetic shop, go directly to the matte lipstick section to achieve that effortlessly transfer-proof lip makeup!
- Try Permanent Makeup
If you want to wake up effortlessly beautiful and ready all the time, then the permanent lip makeup is the best for you! This is 100% smudge-proof and transfer-proof. It’s also proven to be safe and will last up to 3 years time. Imagine not having to spend or worry about your lips for that long! Not only will you save money in the long run but it will definitely save you a LOT of time. Make sure to have this procedure with a qualified cosmetic technician and reputable establishment to avoid possible complications. Reminder: do your research before undergoing any procedure. Always!
