No matter if your makeup routine is long or short, you’ll agree with us that lipstick is a must-have!

With matte lipsticks being on trend for a while now, it’s important to learn how to properly apply them. It’s simple, really. All you have to do is follow these few steps.

Prep Your Lips

Matte lipsticks will not look good on lips that were not scrubbed, so take time to do this beforehand. You don’t need any fancy products, just mix a little bit of sugar with coconut oil and scrub your lips.


The next necessary step is hydration. You can use your favorite lip balm for this.


A lip pencil in the same color as your lipstick will make sure your lipstick stays in place, so never skip this step.

Applying Lipstick

Finally, you are ready to apply the lipstick. For best results, use a lipstick brush and stay within the lines you drew with the pencil.


To fix any possible mistakes you made, put the foundation you use on a thin brush and “line” the outside of your lips.
