So I know a lot of people have issues with their lipstick fading or feathering, so here are some tips to prevent this.
1. One of the main things that I like to use is actually lipped Perfector. So basically all it is just a clear lip liner. What is so cool about it is you can either line the outside of the lip to prevent the lipstick from feathering up or you can actually prime the entire lip with this.
When you are lining the outside you don’t want to go right on the tip. You want to actually go just around the outer rim.
If you were lining the entire lip, it’s clear so you really can’t see it but you just want to make sure it’s nice and even and blended. I’m going to have Bobby go like that. It just blends everything so now your lips are primed.
You can also use a regular lip liner, just the way we did where we filled everything in. That will help too. The clear one is just kind of fun because you can use it for any lip color. It is very universal.
2. The next tip that I have for fading or feathering is just choosing a lipstick or a lip color that is long-wear. If you’re in a makeup store, you can kind of clearly see which ones are and which ones aren’t.
The main thing is that you are choosing something that is matte. I have some nice matte lip colors and my favorite, which I will talk about are the aqua rouge Makeup Forever. They have a lot of pigment so I am going to take a little off first. I am going to start on the top of the lip, just kind of line with this.
It’s really nice that you can actually create a line with this applicator. So that is how we will start. Get the shape. These are really nice. They are very water-proof. They really stay on. You can eat, drink, kiss, this will not fade.
The best part about it is that the other side has a sealant, which is keeping your lips hydrated, because of a lot of times, long-wear lip colors are very drying. That kind of matte look will sometimes dry your lips out. These are much pigmented, so start with just a nice light application. Then I am going to have her smash her lips together. Just add a little more in wherever you need it.
We are going to go ahead and do the sealant because that’s going to lock all the color in. It gives her a nice kind of glossy finish, but it doesn’t stay super-glossy. So if you do like matte, you can still use this. That is how to prevent your lipstick from fading or feathering.
