10 Ways to Wear Matte Lipstick


6. Faded Look

Gloss lipsticks help to create a full, plump look; so much so that women with thin lips are often advised to use only gloss lipsticks. It turns out that, with a little finesse, you can achieve the full look with matte as well.

Start with a lip liner that is identical to your skin tone and then fill in your lips with a matte color that is just slightly pinker than your skin tone. Finish by blotting the edges of your lips a bit more than the centers and they’ll look fuller.
