Long Lasting Red Lips

Here is a tip on how to make your red lips last all night!

This is simple, and I’m sure you’ve seen this trick before but here is the step by step to long lasting red lips.

Liner. Take a lipliner and outline your lips – Then take the lipliner and colour in the rest of your lips.

Step 2:

Fill In. Then apply your lipstick

Step 3:

You can do this with any lipstick colour but red tends to be the one that a lot of people always wonder about.
