“Psst, you've got lipstick on your teeth. Wait, now it’s on your chin. Nope, that side. The other side.” End Scene.

This, my friends, is why I love matte lipstick. You have seen me wear it a lot because matte lipsticks stay put longer than glosses and tend to not wander all over your face (like the scenario above). And it’s not just me that’s in love. Almost every beauty brand boasts about their matte lipstick.

I was recently asked by a viewer how to apply matte lipstick “without looking like I ate a crayon?” I love this question because there is a learning curve with this type of product. Matte lipsticks come in every color, but I especially love all the bold colors, like the NYX Matte Lipstick I’m wearing in this video. If you are trying to wear a bright color with a matte finish paired with your dry, peeling lips and a thick uneven application, back away from the lipstick. Take a few minutes to watch this video. I’m going to get you on the right track with these 3 quick tips that will have you applying matte lipstick like a pro. I promise you will see a difference in how long your lipstick lasts with these tips.

Tips for Applying Matte Lipstick:

Tip 1: Clean and moisturize lips
Tip 2: Rub in the lipstick using your fingertip or a lipstick brush
Tip 3: Reapply on clean lips, even if it means removing what you had on before
