It’s almost New Year’s Eve, a holiday marked by glittery dresses, bubbly and of course, a kiss at the stroke of midnight. If you’re like me, you want to wear a bold lipstick to ring in the New Year in style.
Whether you’re headed out with your beau or looking for “Mr. Right Now,” this long-wear lipstick tutorial will keep your lips in tip-top shape all night long.
Here’s what you’ll need for the most kissable lips:
Step 1: Blot your lips with whatever powder you use on the rest of your face. This serves as a base and will help prevent your color from bleeding.
Step 2: Line your lips with your lip pencil. For clear and easy definition, create an “X” that follows the peaks of your cupid’s bow.
Step 3: Fill in your whole mouth with liner. This will keep your lips looking full all night!
Step 4: Apply your lipstick over the liner.
Step 5: Blot your mouth with translucent powder. Be careful your brush doesn’t pick up color in the process.
Step 6: Add your final coat of lipstick.
Ta-da! You have now kiss-proofed your lips, and you look amazing! Who will you be smooching at midnight?
