It doesn’t take a genius to realize the importance of lip care especially when you constantly apply lipstick. Lipsticks are fun to wear, I know people who can’t live the house without dabbing on some on their lips, that’s how important it is to them. Just less than four years, a new formula and type of lipstick hit the market, the inspiration behind this creation was to provide a long lasting lipstick that would last all day long, this new product was named the matte lipstick.
The matte lipstick has won the hearts of a lot of ladies out there but how many know that this product is high maintenance? One thing about this lipstick is the fact that you can’t just put it on on your lips if they have not been cared for, well not to worry because below are hacks on how to apply the matte lipstick like a pro
1. Exfoliate your lips in order to get rid of the harsh and dry patches of dry skin. This would create a smooth canvas for the matte lipstick application. Remember to do this often with a trusted lip scrub product.
2. Its very important for your lips to be hydrated and to keep it hydrated on a constant you should always apply a lip balm. The reason behind this is because the matte lipstick can be super drying so apply a bit of lip balm before applying the lipstick.
3. Its very important that we don’t see cracks between our lips during the day, so its only wise to apply translucent powder. Do this by pulling apart a layer of tissue, place on your lips and dab some powder on it.
4. Many times we smear our applications and then we have to start over again, to make it easier line your lips accordingly and then follow this line when you apply the lipstick. This would keep the lipstick from smearing and fading.
5. Unlike other lipstick, the matte lipstick drys out instantly which means you can’t just pop another coat on top. Therefore if your lipstick is fading out you need to take off the residue and re-apply. So always make sure you carry a makeup wipe.
