How can I make glam red lips last?

There are a few simple tricks to make your red lips last longer. Using a lip liner to fill in the lips establishes a good base for lipstick to adhere to and also acts as insurance - when your lipstick begins to wears off, you've got a matte red base underneath. Another trick is to apply a thin layer of lipstick, blot with a tissue and repeat: Thin layers are longer-lasting than one thick concentration of colour. The last trick involves separating a tissue so you have one thin sheet, then applying a layer of lipstick, placing a sheet onto the lips and applying a light dusting of translucent powder with a powder brush. Remove the tissue and apply another layer of lipstick. Any of these tips will guarantee your sexy red pout lasts all day (and night) long.
