How to keep your lip color lasting longer than 20 minutes?
Blotting.....this is the key!
"It might seem counterintuitive, but the key to making your bright lipstick last longer than 20 minutes is blotting. First apply a layer of the color to well-hydrated lips, then blot with one ply of a piece of tissue. (If you really want to make the color stick dust a bit of translucent powder on your lips through the tissue.) Then apply a second layer of color and lightly blot to remove any excess that might smudge on your teeth". ~ Real Simple Magazine
