Exfoliate Your Lips

Those chapped and dry lips do not easily allow smooth lipstick application. So it is best to exfoliate your lips with lips scrub. Just in case you do not have a lip scrub you can apply some lip balm and exfoliate with castor sugar.

Exfoliating will create a smooth surface for smooth lipstick application.

Moisturize and Blot

After you have exfoliated, it is important to moisturize your lips but at the same time we do not need extra oils on lips since this will not let the lipstick set for long.

Apply some lip balm and then blot with a tissue to remove traces of oils and emollients.

Prep Up With Primer

Lip primers are great when trying to set lipstick for long. They prevent the lip makeup to last for longer durations.

If lip primer is not anything that you would want to use, you can try using a concealor on your lips. Apply a thin concealor all over your lips before lipstick application and blot again.

Opaque lipsticks will work fine with a concealor underneath while sheer lipstick may not have a great look with a concealor.

Use a Lip Pencil

Using a lip pencil not just as a liner but also as a lip paint. Using a lip pencil all over lips intensifies the lip color and makes it long lasting.

Use a Lip Brush

Using a lip brush increases the staying duration of the lip color. Of course after such a base a tube application will work well too but a lip brush application ensures longevity of the lip color on the lips.
