How to keep my lipstick from feathering or bleeding?

I have recently gotten into bold color lips (reds, neon pinks, corals) and usually put a clear lipgloss on top because I hate the matte feeling on my lips but the lipstick always bleeds or feathers. How do I stop the feathering without sacrificing the glossy look??

Hi Daniela1387,

 

Feathering lipsticks is the WORST!!  We carry a couple different lip pencils that go outside of your lipline to keep the lipstick from traveling Smiley Happy  I suggest trying the Make Up For Ever Lip Line Perfector.  It works amazingly!!

MAKE UP FOR EVER - Lip Line Perfector

Another great option is the Too Faced Borderline Smoothing, Anti Feathering Lip Pencil.  The two pencils do the same thing Smiley Wink

Hope that helps!!

I agree! Clear lip liner is the best!

I won't leave the house without MUFE Lip Line Perfector.

Re: How to keep my lipstick from feathering or bleeding?

I'm so happy to see this post, because I've had the same dilemma lately! I bought a set of OCC Lip Tars, and I love them, but I've been having trouble with them feathering. I've been reading up on a bunch of different lip primers, but they all seem to have pretty mixed reviews. Maybe I'll have to try this MUFE pencil!

Re: How to keep my lipstick from feathering or bleeding?

Please let me know how that works for you because I'm still on the fence about either getting a pencil or a lip primer which supposedly helps to keep lipstick from feathering 

Re: How to keep my lipstick from feathering or bleeding?

I have 3 suggestions

1. Use the lip pencils Mia suggested outside of your lip line. 

2. Take a lip liner and instead of only going around the outside of your lips, line them and fill them in like it is a lip stick. This can distort the color of the lipstick though, so it might not work for daily use, because you would need a pencil for every lipstick. I personally learned it from doing theater as a trick to give the lipstick a little more staying power when the color isnt that important, but my personal favorite method is....

3. Take a concealer and put it around your lips. This works like the lip pencils that Mia suggested but for a person who doesn't do lips everyday its nice to not have to get a whole other product. If you do want to do lips everyday, or very frequently I would probably suggest investing in method 1

I hope at least one of these works

Buy a lip primer so that the lipstick will stay in place all day without feathering or bleeding.

Re: How to keep my lipstick from feathering or bleeding?

I just wanted to second the "reverse lipliner" suggestion -  a clear lipliner applied outside the lip line will stop lip color from feathering or bleeding.  I have one by Benefit, but there are a ton to choose from.  Generally when I wear a bold lip, I wear a clear reverse lipliner, regular lipliner, apply the color with a lip brush, blot, and apply some gloss.

 

It's a process haha

You should check out Wayne Goss's video on youtube. He just put it up like today I think on this same question. He gives amazing tips and they all have worked for me.
