Celebrities rely on over-the-top makeup that will withstand humid temperatures and hours of wear for their red carpet appearances, and sometimes we could use longer lasting makeup, too. Get makeup artist tips for bolder, longer lasting makeup.

Brittany Snow, 29, seems to have the bold lip and oversized lashes thing down, thanks to her makeup artist Amy Nadine. And lucky for us, Amy shared some of her top beauty tips with Marie Claire for getting a similar look and making it last.

Longer Lasting Lipstick: To make your lipstick last as long as your day minus dry lips or endless touch-ups, Amy says you’ve got to put in a bit more effort. First, she says to outline your lips with a pencil and then fill them in entirely. Next, she says to use a moisturizing long-wear lipstick (her favorite is Bliss Lock & Key Long Wear Lipstick).

If you prefer a more matte finish, Amy says to apply this over the moisturizing color to keep your lips from getting that dry, cracked look/feel. She says to stick with a stain or liquid lipstick (we like Sephora Cream Lip Stain, which has a matte finish).

Bolder Lashes: For super long lashes that still have volume, Amy revealed a trick that we swear by. Instead of relying on one mascara to do the job, she says to use two — one for lengthening and one to build thick lashes. Our personal favorite combo is Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara for length, followed by Givenchy Noir Couture Waterproof Mascara for full volume and just a hint of clump.

Will you be stealing Amy’s tricks next time you want a bold makeup look?
