How to Up Your Lipstick Game
Now that the sweaty days of summer are behind us, we’re slowly shedding the barefaced look we sported in the heat and are breaking out our favorite moody makeup. For us, that means lipstick in dark, sexy colors and vibrant, rich berry shades. But, one doesn’t simply transition from glossy or nude summer lips to a power pout without any preparation.
We’ve partnered with Maybelline Super Stay 24 2-Step Lip Color to get your lips fall ready. Maybelline Super Stay 24 2-Step Lip Color has all-day lasting power and stays perfect through everything you do. The secret is its micro-flex formula, which prevents crumbling, caking, fading, and flaking. One side of this dual-ended product is a vibrant lip color while the other is an ultra-conditioning balm.
Follow the steps below upgrade your lipstick game:
1. Don’t Be Flaky – Salt, pollution, chlorine, and baking heat probably did a number on your lips this summer. Refresh them with a quick scrub down before you start wearing your favorite dark lip colors.
2. Mask On, Mask Off – In case you missed the stir on Instagram earlier this year, lip masks are a thing. Whether you go for a moisturizing mask or one infused with collagen for plumping, treat your lips to spa day to soften and smooth them.
3. Save Your Work – Once you’ve treated your lips to a scrub and a mask, don’t let your hard work go to waste. Every night before bed, smooth on a lip oil to keep your lips hydrated and smooth. You’ll be locking in moisture for the long winter months to come.
4. Travel With a Tool Kit – Throwing a few simple accessories in your bag can make staying on your lip game even easier. Lip liner is optional, but it can be an easy way to make lips look plumper and keep your lipstick in line if it starts to wander. Plus, it takes up minimal space in your bag. We also recommend carrying makeup removing cotton swabs (they look like Q-tips but are pre-loaded with makeup remover) to erase mishaps on the go and. Finally, stash a little compact mirror in your tote for touchups.
5. Find Your Long-Wear Soul Mate - Maybelline Super Stay 24 2-Step Lip Color is available in 30 gorgeous shades from mauve to deep berry and bright red. One application in the morning will give you color that lasts all day. Simply apply your chosen color to clean, bare lips. Allow a full two minutes of drying time. Then, apply the ultra-conditioning balm to seal in moisture and provide softness and shine.
