Long Lasting Lippy

We all love a bit of lippy but how do you get it to stay on that bit longer? One glass of wine and it’s gone! As part of our back to basics series, Fran’s done a quick video to show you some handy tips, you’ll need:

– a lip brush
– a lip liner
– your favourite lipstick
– tissues
– pointed cotton buds (if you need to tidy up around the edges)

It might take you a bit longer to apply but using this method will really increase the longevity of your lippy, just make sure your lips are nicely moisturised first. If they’re a bit dry and flaky use a toothbrush to gently buff away the dry skin.

You can pick up a lip brush from Boots or Superdrug, one of my favourite lip brushes is from Estée Lauder as it’s quite flat so good for layering on the lipstick.

If you try this technique, tweet us your pics!

#TipTuesday

Our #tiptuesday is use blusher! Blusher, in our opinion, is a must. Many women shy away from it with the fear of looking like Aunt Sally (google image if you’re too young to remember!) If you choose the right shade and apply it correctly, it will give you a healthy glow . This one, by Giorgio Armani, appeared in Stylist magazine last week and we’re big fans as it suits all skin tones and blends like a dream (you only need a tiny amount).
