- Say goodbye to lip color that quickly runs off and away! Laura Mercier says lip liner is the true trick for getting lip color to stay put longer. It's especially necessary with creamy or slippery lip colors. After lining your lips with a lip pencil that matches your lip color, fill in the rest of your lips with the lip pencil. It acts as a base for your lip color so your lips look luscious longer.
- Don't just blot your lips in a tissue and run. If your lips are naturally soft and smooth, Laura suggests pressing a tissue against your lips and then powdering them lightly with a brush or puff.
- For more mature lips that need a more moist finish, after powdering your lips, simply apply a little more creamy lip color and go!
