So, how do you find a matte lipstick that flatters you without breaking the bank or buying out the entire cosmetics counter?
You make your own.
Any pretty girl can turn her favorite lipstick into a matte lipstick in a few simple steps.
First, line your lips with lip liner and apply your favorite shade of lipstick. Then, using a small blending makeup brush, apply powder over your lipstick until all of the shine and moisture is absorbed. You can use a powder that matches your skin tone, a bronzer, a highlighter powder, or powder blush, depending on the color of your lipstick. Continue to blend powder over lip color until you achieve the matte look that you desire.
