Longwear Lipstick Tips - From Shelley With Love

Have you ever wanted to wear a bright or bold coloured lipstick but couldn’t be bothered with the up-keep required to maintain the original vibrancy?

Problem solved!  Follow these five simple steps for a perfect pout that will last all day.

You will need:
  • a lip pencil – nude or a colour matching your chosen lipstick
  • a lip brush
  • lipstick
  • 2 x tissues
Lipstick that lasts all day in 5 steps:

1.  Pencil
Using a lip pencil lightly line and fill in the entire area of your lips.  Carefully rub the applied pencil into the crevices of your lips, using your ring finger.
TIP:  applying lip liner all over the lips provides an excellent base for the lipstick to adhere to.

2.  Lipstick + Lip Brush
Take your lipstick and apply the first coat with a lip brush.
TIP:  using a lip brush will give you a crisp lip line and help with the lasting power of your lip product.

3.  Seal
Gently blot your lips with a tissue.
TIP:  blotting removes excess oils and lock the colour into the lips.

4.  Reapply + Blot
Apply a second coat of lipstick (with the lip brush or directly from the bullet) and blot again with a tissue.

5.  Final Coat
Apply a third and final coat of lipstick and you’re good to go!  Lipstick that lasts all day.


This colour locking technique works with both matte and creamy lipstick formulas.  You can kiss goodbye to those o-so-annoying touch-ups and the not so cute appearance of worn lipstick lips.  Instead you can look forward to luscious, vibrant lips…all-day-long!

Lipstick. It has the ability to totally change how you feel about yourself. Need a little extra confidence for that big presentation, date or interview?  Grab a bright shade for a little extra pep in your step!
