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

It doesn’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 isn’t nearly as forgiving as cream formulas are so it’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.
