Now that you have a better sense of which matte lipstick shades to try this fall, it’s time to make sure you know how to apply these gorgeous shades. Keep reading for step-by-step instructions for applying matte or liquid lipstick.
Matte lipstick tip #1: exfoliate before adding any color. Since it has a flat finish, matte lipstick can draw attention to any dry patches, so exfoliate beforehand to slough off dead skin cells from the surface of your lips.
Matte lipstick tip #2: prep with primer. Once you’re done exfoliating, apply a primer to help ensure your matte lipstick goes on smoothly and wears evenly.
Matte lipstick tip #3: use lip liner. The best way to create a chic matte lip look is to trace the edges of your lips with lip liner, as this can help prevent feathering. If you want to add the appearance of dimension to your lips, you can even color in the edges with the same liner. Try the Paris Colour Riche Matte Lip Liner.
Matte lipstick tip #4: rock it with dewy skin. Gorgeous, glowing skin is a beautiful complement for matte lips. So, apply a radiant finish foundation and concealer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer.
Matte lipstick tip #5: dress it up at night. While matte lipstick looks beautiful with a fresh-faced glow during the day, nighttime is the time to pair it with wing tips, smoky eyes, and the perfect contour.
