Struggle with creating the perfect cat-eye? Need help nailing a French braid? The Huffington Post's new "How-To" beauty tutorial series will show you exactly how to master these looks and more. In our latest video, we're spilling the secrets to long-lasting lipstick. Pay close attention!

After sipping on too many cups of morning coffee or tea, our perfectly lacquered lips appear more stained. And by the time we're finished eating lunch or yapping it up on the phone, it looks as though we left home without wearing any lipstick at all.

The trick to getting lipstick to last begins with the perfect base. Prepping with a lip primer and then filling in your whole mouth with a nude liner will help to prevent the color from fading or creasing. After applying your lipstick, you'll want to make sure you blot with a tissue to really ensure that it stays put.

Follow the step-by-step instructions in the video above and share your long-lasting lipstick photos with @HuffPostLifestyle using the hash tag #alldaylips.
