My Lipstick Routine
I receive an incredible amount of emails asking me about my lipstick – so today I decided to share my routine! I don’t like to spend an awful lot of time getting ready, so I guarantee that this doesn’t take long at all. This is all just what I’ve learned from my experience with lipstick, so it works for me – and hopefully for you too!
Step 1. lip balm
To stop my lips from feeling too dried out, I always apply lip balm before lipstick. I usually do it about ten minutes before I wear lipstick; just so it has some time to sink in. I use Lucas Paw Paw lip balm, and squeeze a small amount onto a tissue. I find by using a tissue that my lips seem to soak it up better, as not too much Paw Paw ointment is used.
Step 2. foundation
This step always makes me laugh so much! Putting foundation on my lips beforehand seems to make the lipstick last longer. If I wear foundation, I generally don’t have to do any touch ups! It is definitely the funniest part of doing my makeup; I always have a giggle when I see myself looking like I have no lips!
3. and Lastly..
The final step; applying your lipstick of course! I usually use a Revlon lipstick, but it has mysteriously disappeared (I have an inkling that I’ve thrown it away, oh no!) So today I wore Silkygirl Moisture Rich 25 hot lipstick, that I bought while in Brunei. It’s more of a pinky red than I normally wear, but luckily it perfectly matches the gingham bow I was wearing. Best of luck with your lipstick, I hope these tips helped!
