Exfoliate Your Lips
So, how to wear matte lipstick? Rule number One is to exfoliate your lips on a regular basis. Unlike gloss, matte texture is not that forgiving. It shows all imperfections. So, use quality lip exfoliator or just use a new toothbrush and gently rub your lips with it. Though famous makeup artists advise to apply some Vaseline at first and then exfoliate with a very soft toothbrush. Do not forget to rinse your lips and dry them with a napkin so that no film is left.
And in case you don’t trust retailers, you can always prepare lip exfoliator using ingredients that can be found in any kitchen. Simply mix olive oil with a little sugar and then apply this mixture to your pretty pout to get smooth lips without any disturbing dry patches.
