Lipstick Loves: Creating The Perfect Matte Red Lip

Hey Everyone,
there is currently a few different brands offering matte lipsticks but in reality I can find them difficult to apply and drying on the lips... Here is my alternative method of creating the perfect matte lip:
  • I like to use a lip liner (Maybelline Colorsensational 132 Sweet Pink) to create a neat outline, I also like to use liner to help prevent the colour from bleeding.
  • To apply the lipstick (Sleek Cherry) I use a lip brush I really like this one from Blank Canvas (L29) it gives you a bit more precision and you can build on the colour a lot easier by patting the colour onto the lip. 
  • To create the matte effect I then take a small brush and some mattifying powder I use Rimmel Stay Matte in 001 transparent, but loose powder is even better. Only a small amount is needed, press it onto the lips then blend with the brush or blot with a tissue and there you have your perfect matte lip for A/W!

Have you tried this method of creating matte lips?

    1. It is, and it definitely saves money if you can't afford to buy too lots of lipsticks! :) x

    1. Exactly! Did it work for you? I've only ever tried it with dark lipsticks I'd be interested to see if it works with lighter shades! :) x

  3. Such good tips, although I was lazy and just brought a red matte lipstick! May have to try this with some other colours though.
