7 Brilliant Matte Lipstick Hacks You Must Know About
We know you have heard it million times already and here we will ask you to do that once again. Exfoliate your lips not only before applying lipstick, but regularly. This is the basic tip to rock any lipstick look, be it matte or not. So yes, exfoliate your lips, not with toothbrush, but with damp washcloth. The skin on the lips is thin and delicate, so instead plastic bristles of toothbrush, take a warm washcloth and gently rub it on the lips in circular motion. Do this every single day for perfect soft lips.
Prep The Lips
Getting an amazing matte lipstick only to discover that though it looks amazing, it feels horrible on the lips – too dry and too tight. How many times we have gone through such situation? And that’s why it is very important to prep our lips properly before applying matte lipstick. After exfoliating, apply a little amount of light moisturizer on the lips. Then scrape off a small amount of your favorite lip balm and mix it with a drop of foundation. Apply it on the lips. This will form a barrier between your lips and lipstick. Lips will feel weightless and won’t get dry.
Apply Straight From the Bullet
When it comes to matte lipstick, don’t use lip brush as it can give you a streaky and uneven finish. Apply the color straight from the bullet on your prepped lips.
Line the Lips after You Apply Lipstick
Matte lipstick requires perfect lined lips and the best way to do it is to apply the lipstick first, then line your lips with a matching shade of lip liner. This will save you from a number of tasks, like applying the lipstick, then fixing the small mistakes with concealer and small brushes. This order reversal will also save you from messing around with your amazing matte lipstick.
Apply Skin Colored Powder around the edges
Once you are done with applying matte lipstick and matching lip liner, apply skin-colored powder with a brush to create an extra line around the lips and make your lips pop.
Dab Highlighter Onto the Middle of the Bottom lip
Bold matte lip color can make our lips look smaller. So the trick is to dab some highlighter onto the middle of the bottom lip after you apply lipstick. This will add extra volume on the bottom lip where the light will naturally hit. Use a powder highlighter to keep the matte look intact.
Remove with a Moisturizer
Removing a matte lipstick is painful, specially if its a bold color. Even super expensive makeup removers cannot always remove them properly. Apply a thick layer of unscented body lotion onto the closed lips and then gently wipe away with a tissue. Not only the lip color will come off easily, but there won’t be left-behind stain and your lips will feel great.
