There’s nothing worse than stepping away from a cocktail party to freshen up, only to realize that your lipstick is on the side of your mouth or your chin. “How long has that been there?,” you wonder, thinking about all of the people you’ve greeted in the past hour.
Luckily, we’ve found the beauty hack that saves celebs like Bella Hadid from this holiday horror. To achieve a perfect pout that will last all night long, you’ll need a bold lipstick, a little foundation, the right touch and the steps below.
Step 1: Apply lipstick to the top lip, then the bottom lip. We used Bare Minerals Statement Luxe Shine Lipstick in SRSLY RED.
Step 2: Using your ring finger, dab the edges of the upper and lower lip lines.
Step 3: If your lipstick gets smudged, place a drop of foundation, like The Body Shop Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation, on your ring finger and dab to cover, then your middle finger to rub it in.
