The Unexpected Hack to Feather-Proof Your Lipstick

Whether you have a date night coming up, or you just want to wear a bright lip to the office—feathering is never okay. Thankfully the below editor-approved hack will lock lip colour in place and keep away those feathery flakes.

Be sure to load up on lip moisturiser, blot, and then prime your pout with a matte foundation (whatever you use for your face is perfect). Next, pull out your clear wax brow pen or pencil. Starting at the center of your Cupid’s bow, line your lips; this will set your colour. Then apply your favourite long-wear lipstick on top (we’ve got a great list of the most universally flattering lipsticks), and finish with a waterproofing gel.
