The trend for the past few years has been glossy, so transitioning to a creamy, totally matte lip can be a little hard to wrap your head around. I've put together seven examples of matte done beautifully, with options for real women of all skin tones and colour preferences. Click through and don't just get matte, get even.

Over a nude lip liner, use a nude lipstick with a little more peach than your own skin tone, then blot the edges of your lips a little more than the center. The color gradation gives the illusion of fuller lips, too.

Using a lip stain or blotting on a semi-sheer lipstick gives you this look from the Jason Wu show. Gorgeous for a late dinner out, a night at the theater, or any other sophisticated evening pursuit where a little oomph is appreciated.

This look, drawn on with a nude lip liner in your own skin tone and then blotted, is a simple, pretty, universally flattering way to go matte for day.

This shade of dark, muted lilac is dramatic, yes, but quite pretty, and makes the model's eyes stand out, balancing the look.

It's only upon examination that you see how much the natural shape of the lips is emphasized in this look from Temperley London. It's a big step away from the airbrushed smoothness that's characterized lips and skin in the last several seasons, and only requires that you apply a dry nude lip liner and put a long-wearing matte lipstick on top.
