How to Apply Matte Lipstick Perfectly

To make your lipstick stay all day or night, you’ll need to follow careful prep. Using a lip scrub to scour away dead skin is an essential step. Proper exfoliation is the key to creating a smooth surface for lipstick to glide onto. A hydrating lip balm should always follow exfoliation, as a balm will restore moisture and plumpness to your lips. M.A.C Cosmetics Lip Scrubtious and M.A.C Cosmetics Lip Conditioner are the perfect pair to give you an irresistible pout.

The next step in applying your matte lipstick properly is to pair your lipstick with a closely matching lip liner. M.A.C Cosmetics Lip Pencil prevents smudging and increases longevity. To make your lipstick last longer, we also strongly recommended using a lip primer such as M.A.C Cosmetics Prep + Prime Lip . Then, apply your lipstick with a brush such as the Real Techniques Lip Colour & Blur for precision and control. Applying translucent powder on top of your lip colour can also help set a matte lip and remove any trace of a satin finish.
