The Industry Trick To Lasting Lipstick

Mary Peffer


If there’s one beauty product essential in holiday party prep, it’s most certainly lipstick. But the thought of continuous application throughout the night can tempt some of us to play it safe, err boring, with a gloss. As with most makeup application, there happens to be a beauty industry trick to get lipstick, regardless of how bold, to last throughout the night, no bleeding. And Vogue got celebrity makeup artist, Pati Dubroff, to spill just that.

Dubroff, who works with A-clients like Dakota Johnson, believes it really comes down to two things, a moisturised base, and proper setting. Once lips are properly exfoliated and hydrated, Dubroff says, “apply a base coat of colour straight from the tube” then, fill in colour with a matching pencil and apply a final coat of your lipstick.

When it comes to lip scrubs and intense healing to avoid the dreaded winter chap, we've got a few secret weapons reserved in our arsenal. Shop our favourites below!
