Here are some tips to make that pout last throughout the day...
#1 - Prime lips (this primer is my go-to).
#2 - Trace & fill in your lips with lipliner that matches your lipstick.
#3 - Apply lipstick straight from the tube or use a lip brush (like this one).
#4 - Blot lips with tissue & set color with a dust of translucent powder (I have been using this one but any one will do).
#5 - Reapply a second coat of lipstick and you're good to go!
