The mate lipstick trend isn’t going anywhere, it’s important to make sure you’re applying your products correctly and are looking after your lips along the way. Nobody wants dry, chapped lips, here are 3 simple ways to avoid it.
Mate lipstick tends to highlight any cracks so exfoliating is essential to remove dead skin to avoid unsightly bumps, lumps and flaking. If you’re more the DIY type, mix one tablespoon of brown sugar with a big squeeze of honey and a teaspoon of coconut oil for a nourishing, homemade lip scrub.
Moisturizing your mouth means your lips won’t dry out as fast and ensures your lip color goes on easily. You can use a natural oil – like almond and coconut – or use a Vaseline.
A light layer of your concealer will do the trick, it will keep your lipstick on for longer, reduces lipstick fading and feathering, and refines and smoothes your lips all day long.
