Yes, you might have your make-up artist behind you on your wedding day or a helpful cousin carrying your favourite brand in her potli but don't think that it's the scene on your wedding week. Let's start counting shall we? The sagai, engagements sometime happen a few days before the wedding, lunch with family, lunch with his family, small mehendi, sangeet....wedding, reception and the functions afterwards - there are so many and you need to look your best. Wearing the right lipstick and making sure it lasts is one such detail. So we give you 5 working tips that will make your lipstick last longer at every event, making you look like a star!

This will remove dry skin and smoothen out all issues in a jiffy. Buy: Vaseline Lip Guard with Cocoa Butter, YesStyle.com, Rs 279 2. Foundation can be used in different ways Did you know this super cool tip that makes sure your lipstick stays on in times of need? Dab a little foundation on your lip before you apply lipstick and viola, a natural long-lasting formula. The reason: the foundation or concealer that you apply can cancel off the pink your lips come with giving them an even tone for the colour of your lipstick to come through. Choose waterproof foundation/concealer for extra long staying power. Buy: Tarte Waterproof Concealer at Elitify, Rs 2690 3. Outline your lips extra carefully A lip liner is most essential here. I know, I know, we all think that a lipliner can make us look old or like 90s Kareena Kapoor ( gross, that brown liner!). But that is not the case. Lipliner looks terrible when you don't choose the right hue. Choose a colour that goes best with your lipstick of the day and apply it around the lips to seal it. It is dry, but its ok. It will make sure your lipstick won't bleed. Buy: Nyx Mechanical Lip Pencil in Natural at Amazon.in, Rs 982 4. Apply lipstick, choose well When it comes to lipsticks, few rules must be followed. 1. Choose matte lipsticks over glossy. They last longer and give your mouth an even finish! 2. Lipsticks applied can be drying and can make your lips look parched! That's why prep needs to be done. 3. Use a lip brush to apply lipstick - more spaces lipstick can go, more lip that gets covered and more precision in applying. 4. Buy a good sealant to throw on top of your lips so they stay happy all through the ceremonies! 5. Look for long-lasting formulas - as if!!!! Buy: Sealed With a Kiss Lip Sealant at Faces 4. Blot & apply translucent powder After you apply the first apply your favourite lipstick, blot excess foundation. Put in your lipstick and then, blot again to remove excess lipstick. Then hold the tissue paper on the lips and brush it lightly with translucent powder. Sealed! Then re-apply the lipstick once more. Solid foundation and your lips will stay good all through the events. 5. Caution is necessary Do keep a few things in mind when you are applying lipstick. Weddings have daaru, so step one, drink only with a straw. Secondly, discreetly, lick the edge you're drinking from - the slight wetness stops your lipstick coming off on the glass.
