If you are still not encouraged to wear dark matte lipstick, I have to say it’s time that you start to wear because, judging by the trends, matte shades continue to rule the world. Everyone wear matte lips.
Mat lips should be carefully done. They should be solid pigment and application on the lips, and perfectly clean on the edge of the lips. Despite the lip mat, lips still should look like lips, and it must be sufficiently hydrated. The trick to achieving hydrated matte appearance revealed by James Kaliardos, the make-up artist for NARS at Rodarte show.
Blend a small ammount of liquid foundation on the outer edges of the lips, for a better definition of the edge of the lips. Avoid subsequent correction of the lip edge with concealer because it can lighten the outer edge of the lips and smear lipstick. Carefully apply lip pencil to get proper border of the lips. Apply a matte lipstick so that you start from the middle of the lips. Here you can play and use different textures - liquid matte lipsticks, over matte lipstick pencils to classic matte lipsticks. The best part of the trick is that at the end of the matte lipstick apply some clear lip gloss to the lower and upper lip. And this is just in the very middle where her lips sealed together. This small addition is sufficient to lips that don’t look too drained. If you do not have a colorless lip gloss, have some grape balms and do the same as you would with a gloss.
