Swap your lipstick for a lip rouge, tint or stain. These lip products have a much longer staying power than lipstick. Here are three products we recommend:
How To Fix

Opt for an eyeshadow primerand apply it prior to applying your eye makeup. While it may not prevent creasing completely, it will certainly reduce this issue.
