Picture this, you’re on a hot date and you head to the restroom just to check on your flawless beat (and maybe take some selfies) only to find that your matte lipstick is on life support! Crusty, flakey and dry AF lipstick is not the vibe, so to save you from that disappointment, we’re bringing you all the tips and tricks on how to make your matte lipstick last all day and keep matte lipstick from drying out your lips. We know, we know, where have we been all your life?!
How to Make Matte Lipstick Last Longer
The keys to making sure you keep your matte lipstick from coming off are to properly prep, prime and apply! Doing these 3 steps properly will def make your lipstick last longer and look good throughout your day, with no issues.
All About Prep
It’s all about the base when it comes to any matte lipstick. Liquid lipsticks love to settle into any dry areas and accentuate any and every flake, yikes! How do you avoid this? Grab one of our “Hey Sugar” Lip Scrubs (or the “Hey Sugar” Scrub Trio if you can’t decide what flavor 😉) and buff away all the dead skin!
As soon as you finish exfoliating your pout, it’s very important to follow up with a quality lip balm. Lip balms have many benefits besides the fact that it will keep matte lipstick from cracking. Get with the times and sign up to get our LiveGlam February 2020 KissMe Collection which includes our very first lip balm, “Lickable”!
A good lip primer will be your saving grace! Not only will it help your lipstick shade pop, but it’ll also create an even canvas that your lipstick can adhere to instead of sinking into. Some lip primers will even hydrate which will, in turn, make your lipstick last longer since it won’t be cracking and flaking away!
Applying lipstick the right way is crucial if you really want it to last. Liquid lipstick is meant to dry, so if you apply too many coats you’ll be left with a crumbly mess that will flake off within the hour. The key here is to apply a thin layer and to let it dry completely before you do anything!
Now that you know how to make your matte lipstick last all day long, don’t make the mistake of buying low quality liquid lipsticks that just won’t do these tips any justice! Sign up to our LiveGlam Lipstick Subscription Club, KissMe, where you’ll receive 3 exclusive lip products (including those bomb KissMe lippies) every month for just $19.99 (and free shipping in the U.S.)!
