• How To Stop That Dreaded Bleeding Lipstick

    UUUUHHHGGGGG Don’t you just HATE it when you apply your lipstick super neatly and it looks absolutely PERF and then half an hour later its all over your face?! Okay… maybe that’s a slight over exaggeration but whyyyyyyyyyy! I can apply my lipstick so well for it too have a fuzzy line around the edges or for it to be all on my teeth within minutes. A PAIN IKR! Because tis’ the season for bold lipsticks, I have been testing some ways to make sure your lipstick stays looking PENG for hours without you needing to worry. You are welcome in advance.
    Line Those Damn Lips!
    I know you have that secret stash of lip liners in your makeup collection which you never use… We all do admit it! And if you do then your answer is solved! By lining your lips, I found that the lipstick doesn’t budge and it acts as a little security guard. Apply it before you apply the lipstick if you are using the same colours, and HEY PRESTO!
    Try Liquid Lipsticks
    For me, personally, I find that liquid lipsticks last longer and don’t bleed, even if I have eaten massive amounts. Cream lipsticks can move around on your lips easier as they don’t dry like liquid lipsticks do. So convert yourself!
    Get Out The Lip Balm
    Moisturized lips are a must when you wear lipstick anyway, but it stops any flakiness that can lead to your lipstick smudging.
    The Lollipop Trick
    Now this is going to sound a bit ODD… but once you have applied your lipstick, place your finger in your mouth like a lollipop and remove it. You should see a ring of lipstick. This gets rid of excess lipstick on the inside of your lips to stop it going into your teeth. No more ‘You have lipstick on your teeth’ embarrassing moments.
    Blot Blot Blot
    Talking about excess lipsticks, this is the trick that evvvvvverrrryone misses because WHOS GOT TIME FOR IT, but it’s very important. Just blot your lipstick onto a bit of loo roll or paper once you have applied it, and it won’t smudge.
    Long Lasting Lipstick
    Yes, it can be a little more expensive however, sometimes when you go for reds, or berry shades, it is sometimes better to invest in a better quality, long-lasting lipstick, because whatever methods you try, this will always end up the better outcome. Research which has the best reviews too. It is a ‘no-brainer’ really because it’s in the name. You will get better colour for a longer time… what more could you want?!
