Have you ever applied lip color only to look in the mirror 30 minutes later and realize that it has smudged, worn off in the middle, or is completely gone? I’m especially annoyed by this when wearing a bold color, so I had to come up with a way to make the color last all night! This works best when wanting to achieve a matte finish. All you will need is a lip pencil and some high definition powder.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 several times depending on how many kisses you will be giving/glasses of wine you might be sipping.

I like both the matte  and the glossy look - but beware, when you put a moisturizing product onto your lips, eventually you will have to reapply the liner. I did this yesterday and with the gloss and the lip color stayed flawless for 4-5 hours, but then it got ugly - keep your pencil handy. If you keep them matte, there is a good chance you will not have to reapply period. In fact, you may have trouble getting it off without a makeup remover!

PS: I used MAC’s “cherry” lip pencil to achieve this look – one of my favorite reds!

I love using this technique on clients for weddings and events. Brides wanting to wear a red lip on their wedding won’t have to worry about kissing the color off on to their groom which makes for much better photos!
