Lipstick is one of the fundamentals in most women’s beauty arsenal, and while it’s easy to simply slick it on, it does come with a host of complicating problems. It flakes, dries, seeps and can smudge easily; it gets onto drinking glasses and teeth (the horror!), and can transfer itself onto the cheeks of #people you’re kissing ‘hello.’ In short, lipstick isn’t quite as simple as it initially appears, and to help you to keep yours in place and looking fab, I’ve put together a list of 7 steps to the perfect pout.
1. A Good Maintenance Routine
Lipstick looks best on healthy, smooth lips. In order to ensure that yours are in great condition, it’s important that you frequently apply a good-quality, nourishing balm. Find something with a built in SPF, and, if you can, opt for a product with added Vitamin E as well.
