How to Apply and Wear Matte Lipstick (+ Menow Kissproof Review)

Recommended by my office mate, Menow Pro Kissproof Soft Lipstick. Let's read my review and swatches also some beauty tips how to wear matte lipstick.
Matte lips can look incredibly beautiful and elegant, if you know how to wear this type of makeup. Its my first time trying new lip color and matte. And I share some beauty tips and review & swatches about my current favorite matte lipstick......

1. Prepare your lips
You can prepare a lip scrub at home: just mix some sugar with olive oil and honey and gently massage your lips with it for couple of minutes, then rinse; you lips will feel baby soft and smooth. In order to keep matte lipstick fresh, make sure to moisturize your lips before applying your lipstick, because matte texture tends to dry out the lips, creating undesirable, caked on effect. You can moisturize your lips using your favorite lip balm or apply some argan, coconut or sweet almond oil on your lips, thus, preparing them for your sophisticated and elegant matte makeup.

2. Let the color pop!
If you want to get the true shade of matte lipstick, apply a concealer all over your lips prior to applying your lip color. Whether you decide to go for a bright red, flashy pink or nude matte lips, concealing them in advance will help get very neat and beautiful result!

3. Start lining your lips
Apply a lip liner all over your lips before applying your matte lipstick. Using lip liner will help you get neat, clean and beautiful result. Professional makeup artists use this tip all the time. Find a lip liner of the same shade as your lipstick and line your lips with it, filling them in. This way you are creating a base for your matte lipstick to glide on; the color will look a lot richer and more intense. Lip liner will also help your lipstick last longer.

4. No Rubbing
Avoid rubbing your lips together when applying matte lip color, because matte textures don’t work the same way as sheer ones do. Instead, use a lip brush, in order to spread the product all over your lips evenly and if you want to get more precision. Use a synthetic lip brush for this purpose, make sure to cover up every little corner of your lips for elegant and professional looking result.

5. Precision Tip
In order to keep your lipstick application precise and perfect, make sure to clean up the edges using the same concealer that you used prior to applying your lip color. You can use a small, synthetic concealer brush or use a simple Q-tip to go around your lips, cleaning up all the imperfections and flows.
