I love lipstick hacks! I have a great one to share that I think you’ll love too.

Here, I’m going to show you a simple technique that will allow you to boost the wear time of your lipstick. Let’s jump on in!

Tools and materials:

  • Blush
  • Lip gloss
Applying blush to lips

1. Apply blush to lips

Apply some powder blush that matches your lip color to your lips.

Blush acts like a setting powder here, locking your lipstick in place.

The texture of the blush can provide a slightly tacky surface for the lip gloss to grip onto.

Adding lip gloss

2. Add lip gloss

Then add your favorite lip gloss over the top.

Another benefit to this is that lip gloss has a tendency to spread beyond the lip line over time, leading to feathering or smudging.

Applying blush around the lip area can act as a barrier, helping to prevent the lip gloss from spreading outside the lip boundaries.

And there you have it. By applying blush first, you create a longer-lasting base that can help prevent your lip gloss from fading or wearing off as easily.

I hope you enjoyed this hack to make your lipstick long-lasting and will give it a go for yourself.
