A Matte lipstick features a velvety finish without any shimmer or shine because it doesn’t reflect light like other lipsticks. Matte or Satin lipsticks give a more saturated, even color. This creates a dramatic look that puts the focus on the lips. Whether you need lipstick for dark or light skin tones, matte lipsticks could be a perfect choice for you.
Matte lipsticks come in various formulas, such as liquid, pressed in palettes or classic lipstick tubes.
How To Choose A Matte Lipstick?
Matte lipsticks come in fairly bold shades, and a lip liner will help keep the color from spilling out of the line. But which lip liner should you choose? Try to use a color that is close to your lipstick color.
Besides versatility and style, matte lipsticks are the most popular lipsticks among women because of their staying power. All lipsticks contain oils, waxes, and pigmentation. However, matte lipsticks have less fat and moisture than other lipsticks. Not only does this impart a matte vibes shade, but the lip color lasts longer, doesn’t peel off the lips as quickly, and requires fewer touch-ups throughout the day.
How To Wear A Matte Lipstick?
Matte lipsticks are pigmented—meaning you don’t need layer after layer of coverage. Instead, swipe all over your upper and lower lips, and you’re ready to go! Whether using matte lipstick straight out of the tube or with a stick applicator, go slow, so you don’t make a mess.
To apply a matte liquid lipstick, first line and fill the lips with a lip liner. Then use the liquid lipstick with a short brush, starting from the center of the lips and working outwards. Immediately apply a second coat to darken the color if desired, then blot the lips dry with a tissue.
