How to Wear Matte Lipstick this Party Season!

Make Mine Matte: Lipstick Tips for Party Season!

Matte lipstick, oh how we love thee. NARS loves you enough to make a short film dedicated to your amazing-ness. Vogue Paris puts you on its pages. And we put you on our lips. But you can be tricky to wear since some of you are drying. BUT that shouldn't stop anyone from trying you out this party season. Here are our tips for making this matte thing happen:

Exfoliate: Matte lipsticks can show off even the tiniest bit of chapped lips. Before applying lipstick, make your lips soft with a gentle scrub (or even massage a soft toothbrush over them).

Condition: Repeat after me: moisturised lips are happy lips. Moisturised lips are happy lips. Condition yours with an SPF balm, since lips need sun protection too! After the balm settles, pat away the excess with a tissue.

Keep reading . . .Line: Try using lip liner as a base by completely covering your lips. This helps intensify your colour while giving it staying power.

Now, let's all take a moment to admire how freakin' amazing Karlie Kloss (yes that's her in a black wig) looks in her red jumpsuit. The perfect festive look, non?
