  1. The key step to keeping your lipstick in place is to stay moisturised! Apply a lip balm before bed every night and your lips will be nourished and primed for application in the morning.
  2. Use a lip liner! Lip liners act as a fence for your lipstick, so creating that barrier first will hold the colour in place. If you’re worried about not having the right shade for your lipsticks, look out for a clear lip liner as they can be used with every product.
  3. Blot! After applying your first layer of lipstick, gently press your lips to a piece of paper towel or tissue – this step removes any excess product and ensures that the colour is adhered to your lips. Afterwards, you can reapply until you reach the intensity of colour you prefer – just don’t forget to blot in between each layer.
