The One Kylie Lip Kit Tip You Need For A Perfect Pout All Day Long — PHOTOS
If you’ve ever slicked one of these lippies on your lips, then you’ve been totally impressed by its long-lasting capabilities. I know first-hand that it lasts for hours. I’m talking through meals, coffee sips and even brushing your teeth. But, learning how Kylie Jenner applies Lip Kits will help your lip look last even longer. If you remember this one crucial step before ever actually applying the liquid lippie, you’ll be sure to have the color there for hours to come.
Jenner posted about her Met Gala Exposed lip look on her website and detailed the step-by-step process of getting that perfect nude pout. Applying lipstick isn’t like rocket science or anything, but she did suggest doing something that you may not already do in your everyday Lip Kit application process. She used a lip primer before every going in with the liner or the lippie, and I’ll just go ahead and admit it — I don’t normally take the time to do that. But, hey, if it works for Jenner, it’s definitely worth a shot.
According to her, the primer will “add moisture to your lips and help prevent the color from feathering.” Long-lasting color that won’t smudge? Yep, that’s exactly what I’m going for. Good call, Jenner!
