HOW TO WEAR MATTE LIPSTICK



Get this season’s biggest lip trend just right with our step-by-step guide to the perfect matte lipstick application. Once you go matte, it’s hard to go back.

EXFOLIATE YOUR POUT
Dry, flaky lips and lipstick of any kind do not mix, so make sure you prep your pout first. To create a silky smooth surface, simply use an old dry toothbrush and gently brush it over your lips. If you need extra roughage, create a DIY scrub by mixing lip balm together with raw sugar.


MOISTURIZW YOUR LIPS
The key to successfully wearing a matte lip all day long is to keep your lips hydrated, as matte formulas contain less moisture than their glossy counterparts. Following your DIY exfoliation, apply a moisturizing lip balm to your lips and blot off any excess with a tissue so your lipstick doesn’t slip, then wait five minutes before application.

SKIP THE COLOURED LINER
Matte formulas won’t bleed or run, so you don’t need to use a lip liner to keep your pout in check. However, if you’re a fan of liner or want to create a fuller-looking pout, opt for a skin coloured pencil.It will create the illusion of bigger lips without competing with your lipstick hue and it saves you time searching for the perfect colour match.

APPLY AND BLOT
Apply your chosen Lipstick Matte hue directly onto your lips from the middle outwards, pressing your lips together to find your natural outline. After you’ve finished the first coat, blot your lipstick by pressing your lips between a tissue. Apply another coat and blot again for precise, long-lasting colour.

KEEP YOUR SKIN FRESH
To avoid looking like you’re wearing too much makeup, pair your matte lip with a contrasting dewy base and glowing cheeks to keep things fresh. Apply Foundation for lightweight coverage and blend Lips Tint into the apples of your cheeks for a beautiful rosy sheen.
