Matte lipstick is one of our favorite beauty staples and they are a go to for getting that effortless statement look in a snap. However, we think it’s a total misconception that summer time is for glossy lips only. That’s right, because Matte lips will look gorg on you throughout those warm months too, as long as you follow these 5 tips.


For the first tip make sure that your lips are properly moistened before using these matted colors. Unglossed lips are a whole lot less forgiving, trust us. You are always going to want to exfoliate your lips before hand usually the night before to achieve the perfect look. Some great suggestions for an exfoliator is an exfoliator from Pinterest we like the DIY’s.

Following this you’re going to want to load up on lip balm or Aquaphor the night before leaving enough time for the moisture to sink in. After this you’re ready for the next step which is choosing the right color for the right season. For example, the summer time, nudes are always in. But, if you’re looking for a bold look vivid corals are the way to go.

When rocking these bold shades keep the rest of your face fresh especially during the day. To nail the matted look all you are going to need is a lightweight foundation, concealer, a little blush, and some mascara. But for summer nights you can always up your look with a nice slick cat eye.

So go ahead, get started and take those matted colors out from your busy draw. It’s time to bring them back and rock the style.
