Pro Tips with Studio A Salon‘s Makeup Artist, Kristy
We’ve teamed up with Kristy Chapman from Studio A Salon to bring you her secret, pro tips on how to make your red lips last all night long. Valentine’s Day or any other occasion, remember these tips anytime you’re going to rock a bold lip!
Step 1. Exfoliate
The reason exfoliation is necessary is because we want to get rid of dead, dry skin. This will allow our lip products to go on more evenly for longer lasting results.
BONUS!! As Studio A’s head Make-up Artist, Kristy, is sharing her not so secret lip scrub recipe!
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Honey
1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil
Step 2. Moisturize
We know what you’re thinking…. “How will my lipstick stay on if I moisturize first?” We promise we’ll get there. There is a thought that dry lips keep lipstick on longer, but most of us have done that and our lips just end up feeling chapped and overly dry. We always want our skin, including our lips, to be properly hydrated and healthy.

This will give your lipstick a base to “stick” to for long wear.
Step 4. Apply your favorite Red Lipstick all over your lips.
