Making your lipstick matte

When you are wearing a specific look and feel the shiny or glossy lips don’t go well with what you are wearing there is a little trick you can do to mattify your lipstick.



If you only have shinny colours don’t worry. There are ways around it to make your lipstick matte and durable. There are two techniques that can be used one is to use blotting paper. Same blotting paper you would use to soak up the moisture and/or oil from your skin you can use on your lips without removing the pigment.



Another technique is to use powder. Firstly apply the lipstick of your choice and remove the excess using a tissue. Apply a little bit of powder evenly on your lips. Press your lips together and clean any excess. If need reapply the lipstick and proceed with the powder application once more. Be careful when using translucent powder as they can reflect in photographs.
