You asked, we answered: Lip prep for matte & liquid lipstick



Hey beauties! Many of you have been asking for tips on proper lip prep for wearing matte and liquid lipsticks. We know it can be tricky, so we asked our behind-the-scenes beauty pros for their best advice. Here it is:


Start with a light lip exfoliator, followed by your favorite lip balm. Finish with a light coat of primer to guarantee an even overall application.


Outline your lips in a liner shade that complements your natural lip color. Then—this part is important—color in the entire lip! The lip liner will act as a foundation for your lipstick, allowing your color to last longer.


Apply your lip color as you normally would, then lightly blot to remove any excess. When blotting, press the tissue against your lips but avoid the inner lip area, as this may remove your lipstick.


Gently dust pressed or loose powder over the entire lip to set your color in place.


Let us know if this helps—and show us your fave lip looks on Instagram!
