How to Prep, Line, and Fill Your Pout with Matte Lipstick and Matte Lip Liner

When applied just right, your matte pout will look like it’s nothing short of a masterpiece.

Step 1: Exfoliate. While matte lipstick and matte lip liner are great for creating a striking lip look, matte makeup can exacerbate the look of dryness. So, before applying anything, use a lip scrub to exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface of your lips.

Step 2: Prime. After exfoliating, dab on a lip primer to help create a smooth base for your matte lip liner and matte lipstick application. If you don’t have a lip primer on hand, you can use a tiny bit of foundation or concealer.

Step 3: Line and fill. It’s finally time to layer on some color! Start with your matte lip liner shade of choice. In addition to helping to define the shape of your lips, matte lip liner can also help prevent your matte lipstick from feathering outside the lines. After you’ve lined your lips, fill them in with your matching matte lipstick shade of choice.

Step 4: Touch up the edges. Let’s be real: If you’re not a pro makeup artist, it’s easy to make mistakes. If you happened to get a little outside the lines at any point, no worries! You don’t have to start all over again. Just dip a cotton swab in the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types to help erase any errors. You can also use micellar water to remove your matte lip liner and matte lipstick at the end of the day.

Step 5: Add a touch of highlighter. To help make your matte pout really pop, dab a small amount of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Ice in the center of your cupid’s bow and voila—matte pout perfection!

Now that you know how to pair a matte lip liner and a matte lipstick, here are five matte lipstick mistakes to avoid.
