Matte lips are one of the few beauty looks that we can be regard as infallible. Provided you have found the right shade and formula to suit you, there is genuinely no way you can go wrong.

One advantage of using matte lipstick is that its longevity means you'll want to find colours that you can live with all day.

When looking at how to wear matte lipstick, it’s important to create a certain balance with the rest of your makeup.

  • Prepare your lips

Exfoliating your lips before applying a matte lip is important because matte lipstick isn’t as forgiving as gloss, so every imperfection will show.

You can prepare a lip scrub at home: just mix some sugar with olive oil and honey and gently massage your lips with it for couple of minutes, then rinse; you lips will feel baby soft and smooth.

  • Add moisture

While you don’t want to turn the matte look into a glossy sheen, keep a non-greasy lip balm on hand to ease dryness throughout the day.

  • Start off by lining your lips

Apply a lip liner all over your lips before applying your matte lipstick. Using lip liner will help you get neat, clean and beautiful result. Find a lip liner of the same shade as your lipstick and line your lips with it, filling them in. This way you are creating a base for your matte lipstick to glide on; the color will look a lot richer and more intense. Lip liner will also help your lipstick last longer, according to beauty and tips.
