Prep your Lips
Lip colour won’t stay on lips if the lips are cracked and pigmented and will apply unevenly and won’t last on rough, dry, or sunburned lips.
Make a DIY sugar scrub mix sugar with any oil coconut or olive oil and use it at least once or twice weekly to keep your lips soft and pink.
Always moisturise your lips. Use any good lip balm with SPF before applying lipstick and when at home apply Vaseline or any other lip balm to moisture you lips. Lips balm will keep your lips hydrated and will make it soft.
If your lips still feel a little too sticky, brush a bit of sheer powder on them before layering on your lipstick.
After applying your lipstick, blot with a tissue. Next, place the tissue over your lips. Use an invisible setting powder and a blush brush, lightly tap the powder on to the tissue. The powder will absorb the excess moisture of the lipstick and keep it in place.
