HOW TO APPLY MATTE LIPSTICK AND MATTE LIP LINER

When applied just right, your matte pout will look like it’s nothing short of a masterpiece. Follow our step-by-step tutorial to learn how.

Step 1: Exfoliate

While matte lipstick and matte lip liner are great for creating a striking lip look, matte makeup can intensify the look of dryness. So, before applying anything, use a lip scrub to exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface of your lips. Try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub, which can be used on both your face and 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. 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 of choice. In addition to helping define the shape of your lips, matte lip liner can also help prevent your lipstick from feathering outside the lines. After you’ve lined your lips, fill them in with your matching lipstick.

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 color 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, place a small amount of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops in Daybreak on your cupid’s bow and voila—matte pout perfection!
