Matte or Glossy Lipstick? Which One To Choose?
There will be days where you will prefer a more long-wearing finish but there will also be days when you want something a little more care-free. So, is glossy or matte lipstick better? The answer totally depends on the occasion, sis! Hopefully, these next couple of tips can help you choose between matte and glossy lip color.
When to Wear Glossy Lipstick
Imagine lip gloss or glossy lipsticks as the unbothered but confident sister. You’ll look good without trying hard at all since she’s a very one-and-done type of gal and you won’t even need a mirror (#Goals).
Consider wearing lip gloss instead of matte lipstick if you don’t have time to meticulously apply matte lipstick, you’re heading out to the beach with your friends, want the appearance of more plump lips, or you simply want something a little more natural! Make sure you take your gloss with you in case you need to touch up after eating or drinking.
When to Wear Matte Lipstick
Matte lipstick is the more disciplined and sophisticated sister. She requires more attention to detail but she never shies away from a good time! Consider wearing a matte lipstick instead of a glossy lipstick if you’re going out for dinner with bae, got a long workday with tons of meetings, want to wear a bright pop of color that won’t move around, or if you just want to make a power statement! Always make sure you’re applying your matte lippie correctly to avoid any dryness or flakes.
