This Season's Hottest Beauty Trend is Really Great for Travelers
What makes a matte lip so great? The velvety finish of the product gives you a statement-making pout with some serious staying power. Like a little black dress, a matte lip is sleek, versatile and definitely deserves a permanent spot in your travel beauty bag. It can bring you from day to night in a flash and instantly refreshes your look. Another unbeatable perk: the finish won’t stick to your hair or rub off easily on your clothing.
So, how do you make this look work for you? Here are a few key tips to keep in mind:
It’s all about the prep.Exfoliate and moisturize your lips before applying so dry skin and fine lines don’t show through.
Line your lips first.Choose either a nude or matching color liner and outline your lips. Then, fill in your lips with the liner. This will act as a primer making it stay even longer.
Apply with a lip brush.Because of its staying power, precise application is key. Rub the brush directly onto the tube of lipstick and brush onto the lips starting from the edge in.
