The Best Lipsticks for Totally Non-Transferrable Kissable Lips
Looking for the best long-wear lipsticks? If you prefer your lip colour to stay on your lips, rather than the edge of your coffee cup, you’re in luck. Follow my top tips for creating a long-lasting pout, and shop my edit of the best lip products to see you through Valentine's Day and beyond…
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so kissable lips are about to take centre stage. Whether you have a big date planned, or you just want to show off your new season lip colour, I know how important it is to create a lip look that won’t disappear within five minutes. Whether I’m backstage at a show, or prepping a client for the red carpet, I always use one of the best long-wear lipsticks from my kit and ensure the lip prep and finish will prolong the lip colour even further.
Here’s my backstage guide to perfectly kissable lips…
Always ensure you prep your lips well before you start. Use a lip scrub, such as Kiko Pure Clean Scrub & Peel to remove any dead skin cells.
Use lip liner as a primer, layering a matching shade all over the surface of the lips before applying your usual lip colour on top. For a long-lasting finish, pick from my top long-wear lipsticks, below.
If you’re going for a matte finish, blot your lipstick and lightly apply loose powder through a sheet of tissue onto the lips for a super long-lasting finish.
