Brides: How to make lip color last longer on the big day

A bride goes through alot in one day. . .and there is especially lots of kissing!  So I like to help my brides’ lips to last at least until after the ceremony, and then they can reapply after they eat.  How do we accomplish this?

1. Line and fill the entire lip with liner.  I usually use a shade that is close to their natural lip color, maybe a little brighter.  (Where to start? Most people have a pink base lip color even if their lip has more brown in it!)

2. Take a single-ply tissue (if it’s two ply, just separate it) and cover  lips with it.  Take a fluffy brush and dust a face powder similar to their complexion over the tissue/lips.

3. Line and fill in the lips again with the same liner.

4.  Apply lipstick (best with a lip brush.

This way when their lipstick and or lipgloss starts to come off, you’ve at least stained their lips with lip liner that looks like a natural upgrade for their lips!
