How to create matte lips

We always thought that the matte lip trend was going to be a fleeting one, but after seeing some of the looks in the S/S14 shows at New York Fashion Week (notably Prabal Gurung), it appears this trend is around to stay!


The good news is that you don’t have to go out and buy a matte lippie in order to try the trend – creating your own matte lip at home is as easy as pie.

What you’ll need:

A lipstick shade of your choice as well as a blush or eye shadow in the same or a similar colour.


How to create the look:

1. Apply your lipstick as usual.

2. Dip a concealer brush or your finger in the blush or shadow.

3. Dab the powder onto your lips.

4. Dip and dab until your lips are completely matte.


See, we weren’t kidding when we said it was easy as pie!
