Estēe Lauder Technique: Long- Wearing Lipstick
Jeez, the last time I did this kind of tutorial was about a year ago, perhaps? Gotta remember all the techniques I learned from attending exclusive makeup workshops and share 'em here!
Here's one from Estēe Lauder.
In 2012, I attended Blair Patterson's, makeup artist for Estēe Lauder, exclusive workshop in the Philippines and this is one technique that stuck with me: Wear lip gloss to make lipstick last longer. I was like. SRSLY??? But isn't gloss's slippery, wet texture incompatible with lipstick?! He showed us how to do it and I tried it myself. Since then, I've been doing this technique when I have a lipstick that doesn't seem to stick or if my lip's chapped and needs a moisturizing layer before lipstick.
You will need:
STEP 1: Dot lip gloss on the side of your hand and spread out with a finger. Unfortunately, I can't show a more accurate photo for this step as my other hand is holding the camera. :)
The explanation of Blair behind this technique is Lip Gloss has polymers and silicone that help keep the formula of lipstick together and boost the power of wax, the agent that keeps pigments intact. Given lip gloss's ingredients, we can say that it's primer for the lips!
I've owned this technique by doing this: I match the color of my gloss and lipstick for a fuller, bolder pout. ;)
That's all for today. How do you make your lipstick last?
