1. Not Exfoliating Lips
In order to get most of out of your lipstick and get a smooth finish on your lips, it is important to exfoliate your lips properly. Use a sugar scrub on your lips to remove the dead skin and keep your lips soft.

It is important to keep your lips hydrated to allow your lipstick glide well on your lips. Drink plenty of water and apply primer before applying the lipstick to keep your lips hydrated.
3. Not Using Lip Liner
It is essential to line your lips with lip liner to prevent bleeding and give your lips a neat finish. Make sure you apply lip liner which is close to your lipstick shade.

Applying darker shade of lip liner can overpower the shade of lipstick. This is why it is important to choose lip liner as close as possible to lipstick shade.

Some women have habit of biting their lips which leaves lipstick marks on the teeth. Care must be taken these marks are removed immediately.

Never apply too many coats of lipstick on your lips, instead apply two coat of it and carry your lipstick with you to do the re-touch.
