Matte lips are the go-to look right now.

If youโ€™ve been used to lip gloss or creamy lipsticks then matte lipstick can feel shocking at first.

Thereโ€™re some tips that make matte lips easier to wear and help them look great on you.

Soon, youโ€™ll wonder how you ever wore anything else.

1. Choose Some Shades That Look Good in Matte Form

Before you can wear matte lips, you have to shop for the right matte lipstick.

Itโ€™s become such a popular trend that almost every brand of cosmetics has a selection of matte lippies.

A good tip to remember is that whatever shades flatter you in other lip products will probably work well in matte.2

A lovely matte lippie Iโ€™m currently hooked on is Mac Honey Love.

Itโ€™s the perfect shade of nude.

2. Donโ€™t Count on Matte Lipstick for Hydration

Donโ€™t Count on Matte Lipstick for Hydration

As pretty as matte lipstick is, itโ€™s not going to hydrate your lips.

Lip glosses, balms and creamy lipstick all offer moisture to parched lips.

You canโ€™t count on a matte lipstick for hydration.

In fact, it could dry your lips out more.

Because of this, itโ€™s especially important to apply a great lip product at night to restore moisture.

3. Prep Your Lips

The best way to wear matte lipstick is with a balm under it.

It doesnโ€™t have to be anything fancy;

regular old chapstick will do the job.

You can also use a lip primer to moisturize your lips as well as prep them for matte lipstick.

Matte lipstick isnโ€™t nearly as forgiving as cream formulas are so itโ€™s good to use a primer to keep it in place.

With creamy lipsticks you can simply wipe any mistake away but matte formulas tend to stay put, mistakes and all.

4. Resist the Urge to Add Gloss!

Your first reaction to seeing matte lips on yourself may be to reach for gloss.2

While you certainly can add gloss on top and some people do, youโ€™re losing the matte finish.

Itโ€™s tempting but if you can hang in there, youโ€™ll get used to the look of lips without shine.

You may come to prefer the matte look.

It could be your signature thing!
