Matte Lip Hacks For Fall
Article was written by BFR's founder Leslie Munsell
Now that we are solidly in the season of cooler weather it’s time to shift your makeup to reflect the change. One of the easiest ways to do this is with a lip update.
Get ready- we’ve got four new, super wearable liquid lipsticks!
Be Seen Weightless Liquid Lipsticks not only provide the full coverage and longwear that you love in a liquid lipstick, they also have an incredible custom formula with conditioning Candelilla and Carnuaba Waxes, Jojoba and Avocado Oils so they aren’t nearly as dry as traditional mattes. If you haven’t worn matte lipstick before and are looking for longwear, this is a great time to start and if you have, you’ll love this non-drying matte formula.
Here are some tips to use when crafting your perfect lip application-
Before applying lip color, make sure your lips are in top condition, especially as we go into cold weather. Use a Lip Scrub regularly to keep dry, flaky lips at bay. Nothing ruins the perfect lip application like unwanted texture in your lips. It’s great to use a scrub at night to remove your matte lipstick easily and provide the extra hydration.
Create a bit of dimension for a fuller pout by using a liner just a bit darker than your lip color. For a light nude combo use Neutral Liner with Exposure and for something a bit deeper try Neutral Deep Liner with Maxed Out Liquid Lipstick. Don’t be afraid to mix and match to get your favorite combo.
Love the full coverage of a matte lip but want a bit of emollient shine? I love a more slippery texture on my lips so after I apply my Liner and Liquid Lip into a perfect clean, defined shape, I’ll put on a coordinating Lip Gloss. It effects the longwear slightly, but for me it’s worth it for the reflective shine and makes a great statement. For a nude lip, try using Lighthearted Lip Gloss over Exposure Liquid Lipstick and Neutral Lip Liner.
