How not to make lipstick smudge: isfluff your lips
Absolutely the first gesture, the one that allows you to eliminate all the annoying skin and dead cells. L’exfoliation it also concerns the lips and is a fundamental step (although not the only one) to show off a make-up to scream. Obviously, daily exfoliation is not necessary: just repeat the gesture once a week, especially during the cold season, when the lips demand extra attention. There are many specific products on the market, but if you need a last minute remedy, remember you can use it too brush – or use the old “grandmother’s” method by mixing honey and sugar and passing the mixture on your lips.
Moisturize your lips before applying lipstick
Here is another gesture that is often not given due attention: thehydration, a must not only for the face and body but also for the lips. The ideal would be to pass one lip cream or a balm as the very first make-up gesture, leaving the lips time to absorb it and then moving on to applying the lipstick.

Blot with a tissue
If you have chosen a matte lipstick, remove excess product with one tissue. If, on the other hand, you used an rcreamy bone and you would prefer to mattify it, apply a little powder on the tissue paper placing it gently on the lips: it is the best known beauty tip guarantee the durability of the color.
