The Matte Finish


This season it seems that “glossy” isn’t the only way to be “glam!” A lot of fashonistas are straying away from the usual shine and taking on a Matte look! While Matte lips are most common, a lot of women are venturing into wearing Matte nail color.

Want to try the matte look? Follow these steps below:

1 Exfoliate your lips. Exfoliation of the lips gets rid of any dead peeling skin and leaves the lips soft and smooth. 

2. Moisturize your lips.  After exfoliation, put on a lip balm that will not dry your lips out. A light lotion may also work. (No vaseline or carmax!)

3. Prime your Lips. Take a lip pencil and outline your lips. Some people choose to color in their entire lip to achieve the Matte look. If that’s your preference, then, YOU’RE DONE!

4. Fill in your lips with your lip color. Use the same color lipstick as your lip pencil and apply to your lips entirely. Rubbing your lips together won’t help with smearing the lipstick; its up to you to make sure your entire lip is covered.

5. BE FAB!!
