How to Keep Liquid Lipstick From Cracking
We all stan a good matte lipstick moment, but something that can really kill the vibe is the dreaded cracking and flaking that can come with it! You leave your house feeling like a snack only to catch your reflection and notice all that texture, leaving you sad (& super annoyed) and wondering how to keep liquid lipstick from cracking. Luckily for you, we’re solving all your cracking (caking and crumbling, too) matte lippie problems!
How to Prevent Liquid Lipstick from Cracking
Let’s be real, matte lipstick can go from glam to gross pretty quickly due to many factors you’re probably not aware of (it’s okay, we were there once!). Prevent your lipstick from cracking by following these next couple of tips. Don’t live in fear of your liquid lipstick betraying you ever again!
All About the Prep
If your lips are super dry and flakey before any product, you’re already destined for a cracking disaster! Avoid this by making sure you keep your lips hydrated and exfoliated at all times. Grab your fave Hey Sugar lip scrub to get rid of the dead skin and any flakes and then follow up with our Total BALMshell lip balm! Now your lips are ready for any lip color.
Less is More
When it comes to matte liquid lipstick, the less layers the better! Apply 1 thin layer and let it dry completely before you do anything. This is where good formulas and quality lippies come to play. With a pigmented liquid lipstick (like our KissMe lippies) you won’t need another layer, just one coat and you’re all set 😉.
Keep Lip Balm in Your Bag
If you start feeling like your lipstick is getting dry throughout the day, whip out your lip balm! A hack to stop liquid lipstick from cracking on your lips is to dab a tiny bit of lip balm on your finger and then tap that on your lips. Use the smallest amount, if not, your lipstick can come off!
