Lip liner accentuates the natural curve of a woman’s mouth, drawing attention to her smile. However, after meticulously applying the liner in the morning, cups of coffee and lunch have made it almost disappear by mid-afternoon. Reapplication on the fly is not always possible, making seeking a solution to keep your lip liner intact a more feasible answer. Correct preparation and application of the lip liner and lipstick makes both stay longer.

Scrub your lips gently with an exfoliating face wash. Work the cleanser into your lips and wipe it away with a damp cloth. Exfoliating the lips removes dead skin cell and creates a soft, supple layer for your lip liner to adhere to.


Pat your lips dry and cover them with a thin layer of liquid concealer. Work the concealer into your lips and wipe away any excess with the damp cloth. Choose a concealer that is one shade lighter than your lip color.


Apply your lipstick before the lip liner. Once your lipstick is expertly applied, create a thin line around your lips with the lip liner. Use a dampened cotton swab to fix any errors and allow your lips to dry.


Cover your lips with a light coating of translucent powder. Dab the powder onto your lips to remove moisture and excess oils from your mouth. This keeps both products in place longer.
