Today we are getting the perfect guidebook on how to wear Matte Lipstick from @make_upbyruthie wearing VAMP. (Side note: we are almost sold out. Get yours while you still can 😘)
1. Exfoliate your lips. Dry dead skin is often what makes your lipstick look rough and uneven so gently exfoliate your lips before you apply any color. You can use a sugars scrub or gently exfoliate with a soft bristle toothbrush.
2. Add moisture.
Apply a lightweight lip balm or moisturiser. This helps fill in any cracks so your matte lipstick will go smooth and more even.
3. Use a lip liner to get the perfect shape. Because matte lipstick is highly pigmented it is difficult to get off and redo without irritating or staining your skin. So you want to get it right on your first try. Applying lip liner before ensures you have lines to "color in"
4. Apply you matte lipstick. Whether it's straight from the tube or you're using a lip brush, try to be a s precise as possible.
5. Blot your lips on a paper towel.
