One of your makeup lifes most compelling questions might be, how do I reapply or touch up liquid lipstick throughout the day? As John Lennon said, “Christ, you know it ain’t easy!” Seriously, this is actually one of the reasons I hate long wearing liquid lipsticks! They aren’t exactly easy to just reapply throughout the day. Let’s face it, once you apply long-wearing liquid lipstick it sets like concrete and it isn’t moving throughout the day.
But sometimes you want to touch it up or even reapply it so it looks fresher maybe or perhaps less dry.
Here’s a makeup hack to reapply or touch up your long wearing liquid lipstick throughout the day!
Grab your favorite micellar water, I really like Biore Cleansing Water or Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. Now grab a large Swissper or a piece of your favorite facial cotton, I really like Kleenex Cotton Soft Pads.
You’ll also need a bag of Ziploc Snack Size Bags, you know the smaller half size ones?
Here’s what you’ll do with all that loot.
First take your cleansing water and completely saturate your cotton pad or facial cotton. Make sure you wet it well! Now pop it into the Ziploc Bag and throw the bag in your purse or tote.
If possible, I’d recommend storing the saturated pad in the fridge so it doesn’t dry out if you’re head to someplace that has a fridge! Typically, it actually doesn’t dry out for several hours in my experience but if you want to be sure it doesn’t just pop it into your fridge at work.
When you’re ready to touch up your liquid lipstick, which is ALWAYS incredibly hard to remove without some sort of eye and lip makeup remover you simply remove the pad, wipe off your lipstick, pat your lips dry, and reapply a fresh coat of your liquid lipstick of choice.
I don’t really love long-wearing lipstick formulas but when I’m wearing them I use this little makeup hack so, I can reapply them whenever I want to or even switch up colors through the day if that’s what I’m wanting to do!
Hope this helps you touch up your liquid lipstick throughout the day!
