Paul Innis, celebrity makeup artist for Avon North America, shared his secrets on how to make lipstick stay put all wedding long.



1. Start with bare lips. (Moisturizer can cause lip liner to smear off.) Line the entire lip with liner, filling in the middle, too. "For the best effect, choose a shade that's as close as possible to your natural lip color," says Innis

2. Cover your lips with a single ply of tissue, and using a fluffy brush, dust face powder over your lips to set the liner. The thin layer of tissue allows just the right amount of powder to cover your lips and form a solid base.

3. Line and fill again. "Be careful not to allow the color to extend past the natural line of your lips—unless you're trying to correct the shape."

4. Apply lipstick using a clean, dry lip brush, which will give you the best control and the most natural look. Begin in the center and work outward.
