How To Wear Matte Lipsticks Perfectly
Matte lips look very beautiful and elegant. We have various finishes of lipsticks but out of all I would say matte lipstick finishes look the most sophisticated, classy and have that extra oomph.
But wearing a matte lipstick is not as simple as applying a glossy lipstick in a go. Wearing matte lipsticks come with their own set of steps to be followed so as to rock matte lips, without embarrassing flakes and dryness on lips.
As many of you must know that I am a huge fan of red & matte lips and I totally understand how hard it can become at times to pull off matte lips. To help myself pull off matte lips, I follow few lip prepping steps before wearing matte lipsticks. Today I shall share some step by step tricks to wear matte lips perfectly and rock the world.
Exfoliate Your Lips
Matte lipsticks’ textures tend to emphasize all flaws of lips, be it dryness, flaky lips or very obvious lip lines therefore, it is of utmost importance to prep your lips and make them smooth & soft. Exfoliating your lips is a great solution to get rid of peeling skin, in order to reveal baby soft lips. This will also allow lipstick to glide easily and beautifully on lips. You can invest in any lip scrub or simply scrub your lips with a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil and sugar granules.
This too is a very crucial step in order to keep matte lipstick looking fresh. Matte lipsticks are usually drying in nature and after a certain time they can be very uncomfortable on lips and can also look caked up, to prevent this ensure to moisturize your lips before applying your matte lipstick. You can moisturize your lips using your favorite lip balm and blot the extra lip balm with a tissue paper.
This is an optional step for regular matte lip days but if perfection is what you are looking for then you should not skip this step. Use either a lip primer directly on your lips or a regular face primer along the edges of your lips to prevent bleeding. Matte lipsticks by nature tend to bleed less than creamy or glossy lipsticks, but when they do bleed, it becomes really a big mess fixing a matte lip color. Applying lip primer on lips will also extend the staying power of the lip color, which of course every lady desires.
Make The Color Pop
To get the true shade of matte lipstick, apply a concealor all over your lips prior to applying your lip color. No matter what color you are choosing but concealing them in advance will help you get a very neat and beautiful matte lips.
Fill Lips With A Lip Liner
Apply a lip liner all over your lips before applying your matte lipstick. Using lip liner will help you get neater, cleaner and more beautiful result. Professional makeup artists use this tip all the time. 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. Kim Kardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner swears by this, look how sexy her lips look.
Avoid rubbing your lips together when applying matte lip color, because matte textures don’t work the same way as the sheer, crème or glossy lip colors do. Instead, use a lip brush, in order to spread the product all over your lips evenly.
Blot For Longer Stay
If you want your lip color to last even longer, then after applying a lipstick, blot your lips with a tissue paper and reapply the lipstick again. This will help add intensity to your lip color and you will be astonished how much longer your lipstick will last. Blotting your lips with paper or tissue will help you avoid cakey and over-dry looking lips.
In order to keep your lipstick application precise and perfect, make sure to clean up the edges using the same concealor that you used prior to applying your lip color. You can use a small, synthetic concealor brush or use a simple Q-tip to go around your lips, cleaning up all the imperfections and flaws. This will also prevent feathering of lip color.
