How To Make Your Lipstick Last All Day

Posted 2 years ago by

There is nothing sexier than sporting sultry red lips all day, but it can get very annoying having to constantly re-apply. Below are a few tips and a few products that have made my red lipstick habit less complicated.

1. Get The Right Lipstick

This is the root of the problem. Some lipsticks are better than others, and price has nothing to do with it. My favorite lipsticks have actually been more on the affordable side than not. My all time favorite classic red lipstick has been the $3 e.l.f  matte lipstick in Rich Red. Usually I don’t expect much when using cheap cosmetics but e.lf. has blown me away countless times. I applied it in the morning and didn’t have to re-apply until my subway ride home after my nine to five.

I’ve also had a lot of luck with the $3 e.l.f. Studio lip stain in Red Carpet and the $10 Mattese Elite in Swinger from Ricky’s NYC. Another thing I have discovered over the years is matte lipstick lasts a lot longer than those meant to make lips shine.

 2. Prep The Lips

We usually use eyelid primer to make our eyeshadow last longer, why not do the same for lips? I only recently heard of lip primer. In the past, I would put my liquid foundation on my lips and set them with powder before applying my lipstick. I typically recommend priming the lips when using an off-beat lipstick color such as those from Lime Crime. Red and pink lipsticks don’t necessarily need it.

 3. Eat and Drink Carefully

This is what usually fades our lipstick throughout the day. When drinking from a glass, press your tongue against the glass first. That way your bottom lip will touch your tongue instead of wiping and smudging on the glass.

While eating, avoid touching the utensil with your lips at all costs. Instead, graze your teeth on the fork or spoon instead of grazing your lips.

Fashion Advice: How to Appear More Fashionable

Posted 3 years ago by

Style isn’t for everyone. Many girls like playing it safe with the usual “jeans and t-shirt look,” especially during the college years. It’s quick, easy and…lacks style. If you’re that girl but want to start entering the world of fashion, style and trends, then read this guide on how to appear more fashionable.

The Three Don’ts

1. Flip Flops

They are lame, sorry just lame. They work when you are in need of a pedicure in the winter, are lounging at the pool or beach all day in the summer and if you have to shower in a communal bathroom…aka “dorm life.” Other than those three things, stay away from them. Why wear something that’s unfashionable AND bad for your feet?

Opt for a pair of sandals instead! They’re a much better alternative, and are just as easy to put on as flip flops.

Try out a sexy pair of T-strap or Thong sandals.

2. Uggs

Yes, they are comfortable, but so are lots of other boots. In the fashion world, Ugg stands for Ugly. Unless you live in Greenland, don’t wear them. Opt for a cute pair of lace up or moto boots instead!

3.  Denim Skirts

Let’s put it this way: if you wore it when you were in middle school, don’t wear it now. Instead, try a cute maxi or bodycon skirt! They are trendy, fashionable and just as easy to put on as your 12 season old denim skirt from Old Navy.

The Three Do’s

1. Accessorize

Accessories are such an easy way to make any outfit more trendy. Rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces…they all work. Just stay away from the bling.

2. Red Lipstick

It’s a quick way to look fashionable and sophisticated. Red will never go out of style. Go to your local e.l.f. retailer and get a striking red for only $3!

3. Vintage

Worried about what’s in this season? Not sure if your outfit will work for the event you’re going to? When in doubt, wear vintage! Not all vintage has to be expensive, and sometimes you can even find a vintage treasure at a thrift store for under $10!
