When I'm working on a client who has a long night ahead of her, I like to apply a light dusting of baby powder in between lipstick application to enhance the lasting power. Apply one coat of lipstick, then place a tissue over lips and dust baby powder around the lip area using a powder brush. Apply a second coat of lipstick and you're good to go!"
