If a perfectly smooth finish isn’t for you, then you can choose to go with a finely textured look. Note that you still want to start with a smooth canvas because you are going to add texture, not let texture show through. Start with a lip liner that matches your skin color closely and use it to create an outline. Apply a textured matte lipstick to fill in between the liner. Textured lipsticks emphasize the natural shape of your lips.
