Over the last few seasons, matte has become the preferred lip formula of some of our favorite It-girls and beauty-lovers! More sophisticated than a gloss and more fashion-forward than your classic satin finish, matte lipsticks and stains are a must-have this season!
If, like us, you love a matte lipcolor then get ready to be spoiled by L'Oréal Paris once again! The French beauty brand has just launched their Infallible Pro Matte Gloss range, available in 10 delicious shades. This liquid matte color offers intense pigmentation and a sexy velvety finish.
Of course, if you've ever tried a matte lip color before then you know that the formula has a tendency to draw attention to dryness. That's why we propose preparing your lips before applying your color! Here are three ways to exfoliate your precious pout...
3 Ways to Exfoliate
An express scrub
Nothing is more quick or efficient than a store-bought lip scrub! Apply a dollop on your lips and then massage in a circular motion.
Taking the toothbrush to your lips is another easy way to quickly exfoliate your lips before lipstick application! Simply wet the brush and then gently scrub your lips to remove dead skin.
A Homemade Scrub
Are you a fan of DIY? Then make a homemade scrub with brown sugar and honey or coconut oil. Rub the solution on your lips and try not to eat your delicious homemade concoction!
Whatever way you choose, always make sure to follow up with a thick, hydrating lip balm and allow it to settle in before applying your chosen lip shade. Now, you're officially ready to pull off that gorgeous matte color with style!
