Matte lipsticks last longer and if you don't own one or would rather wear the normal glossy for longer, try out these simple steps.
Most times our favourite lipsticks don't come matte, they are normal and (sometimes annoyingly) glossy. Whatever happened to Ruby Woo? Not that we'd wear those to work everyday though!
Achieving a long lasting matte lipstick finish can be done through blotting the lipstick applied with tissue to absorb shine or any glossy feel to it and gently applying another light coat to finish off matte or in these super easy steps:
1. Cleanse/prepare lips making sure it's rid of dead skin and well moisturized
2. Apply liner and lipstick as per usual
3. Dip lipbrush in translucent powder lightly and dust this all over the lips (over the lipstick application) and gently smack (lips together to distribute powder evenly)
This mattifies it instantly and you're ready to take on the day with long lasting lips in whatever colour you want!
