Bold matte lips are still trending this winter. If you haven’t thrown yourself into the world of deep, dark or bright lips then it’s time to start experimenting with colour.
Matte lip colours often aren’t as forgiving as glossy formulas. If you have dry lips they can enhance any flakes or cracks and turn into a total disaster. But with these simple steps you’ll be ready to rock a deep red or bright pink all winter long.
1. Exfoliate your lips with a lip scrub like Ritual Body Co Sugar & Spice Lip Scrub. This all-natural scrub uses brown sugar to remove flakes and leaves you with super smooth lips.
2. Hydrate your lips with a nourishing lip balm. Apply the lip balm and then blot off any excess with a tissue – we’re after matte lips remember! Wait at least four minutes for the balm to sink into your lips before the next step. A bb staff favourite is Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tin.
3. If you have issues with lip colour fading, you should use a lip primer. Try NYX Lip Primer for long lasting colour. As a bonus it creates a smooth surface for even application.
