The Tissue Trick!

The Tissue Trick!

Everyone loves a great looking lip color! The issue that most busy women have is getting your favorite lip color to last longer! Our Stay Put Matte Lip Creams are a fantastic option for a great lip color that is super long lasting.

However, if you have a favorite shade that is a different formulation, here is an old stage makeup trick that will make your most favorite lip shades last longer.

I call this The Tissue Trick!

Here’s what you need...

  • Your favorite lip color
  • A facial tissue
  • Some loose face powder
  • A Powder brush
1) Apply your favorite shade of lip color to your lips.
2) Take a facial tissue and split it so you only have one ply of the tissue.
3) Keep your lips together and place the single ply tissue over your mouth.
4) Take a small amount of loose face powder on a powder brush and tap the the brush over your mouth while the facial tissue is still in place.

The loose powder filters through the tissue and "sets" your favorite lip color into your lips (just like loose powder sets liquid foundation on the face!)

5) Apply a second coat of your favorite shade of lip color for more longevity.

Although most busy women find loose powder to be a hassle and too messy to bother with, the Tissue Trick is still a great tip for those times and special occasions when you really need your favorite lip color to last.

The Tissue Trick is great to do with our Triple Sticks Lipstick and Cream Blush!

I use The Tissue Trick all the time on my actress clients and they tend to love it!

Have a Beauty-ful day!

How Can Mineral Makeup Contain Talc?

  • Talc can be drying to the skin. 
  • Sensitive skins can (and usually do) have adverse reactions to talc. 
  • Talc can “scratch” the skin.
  • And If talc is not processed properly, it may even contain some asbestos in it! 
But apparently the folks at bareminerals feel differently!

There’s a saying... "People who have nothing to hide, hide nothing".

Think about it... More than anything else, this saying should apply to your beauty products!
