The first thing you want to do before you ever wear a matte lipstick is hydrate your lips.
I’m using a lip conditioner.
And this is from Mac, but literally any kind of lip balm will work.
Let it sit on your lips for at least five minutes before you apply the lip product,
just so that your lips are hydrated, and they’re not cracked or chapped.
Because with any kind of lip product, it just looks better when they’re smooth,
but especially matte is gonna catch the light.
And it’s gonna be really obviousif you have any dry or cracked areas.
One thing about using this technique is it means that
we don’t have a matte lipstick to touch up with.
We’re gonna have to repeat this method every single time we want to touch up.
So I’m using a lip liner to make everything last longer.
So hopefully I won’t have to touch up at all.
This one is just a color that is pretty similar to the lipstick I’m using.
You could always go a little bit darker, if you want to keep it ombre.
Um, but I’m just going to match everything up, and then I’m gonna apply the lipstick.
我要用的这支口红是Daredevil 来自EM Cosmetics
OK, so this is the lipstick I’m gonna use. It’s called Daredevil. And it’s from EM Cosmetics.
This is a really pretty color and it’s really dark and vampy.
But I don’t like the fact that it’s glossy.
I just feel like it doesn’t look very good on me.
And it goes on a little bit patchy.
So I’m gonna show you that you can do this even with colors that are not perfectly opaque.
And it’s really really simple.
So, I’m gonna apply that and then we’re gonna come back with powder.
OK, I screwed it up a little bit. I kind of put a little bit too much lipstick on it.
It just feels really heavy.
So I’m gonna take a tissue, and we’re gonna blot some of it off, until the color looks even.
This is totally optional.
You don’t have to do this and you don’t have to put too much lipstick on to begin with.
It’s just a personal preference thing.
The next thing that you’re going to need though to make your lipstick matte is a translucent powder.
And this is really basic, like you could use actually something that has color in it.
I always prefer translucent,
just in case I’m using this with a lighter lip color, so it doesn’t affect the shade.
So all I like to do is take my fingers, and swirl it into the powder.
And then I pat them across my lips really gently.
You don’t want to move your lip color around.
But you want to press this powder in,
so that it can start to absorb that oil or whatever is making the lipstick glossy.
So I’m gonna pat that on, and you can see I’m putting a lot on.
Just keep going until you feel like your lips are matte.
And then once you have all that powder on there,
press them together a couple of times until everything absorbs back into the lip product.
That’s what’s gonna make it matte. And you can, of course, go back in with some more powder,
and touch up if you feel like you missed the spot.
That’s the completed look. It’s really really easy.
And I love this, because I have so many lip products at home that I just want to use,
but I just don’t like the fact that they’re not matte.
