THE RIGHT WAY TO APPLY A MATTE LIPSTICK

BY @KENTOURE

When applying Matte Lipstick incorrectly your lips can become dry and flaky resulting in cracking painful lips.  Not a pretty sight! If you are a fan of the matte lip and want a long lasting lip for any occasion, check out these products to add to your beauty regime to achieving smooth kissable lips 🙂
STEP 1. Exfoliate-  Exfoliating removes the dead skin that causes flakiness. By gently buffing your lips in a circular motion it will help smooth as well as hydrate your lips at the same time. Once you finish exfoliating, rinse off with water and pat dry with a clean napkin or towel. TADA!  New gorgeous looking lips! Told ya so! Looking for a great exfoliator check out my favs below and check out STEP 2. 

 

After you finish exfoliating it’s time to condition and moisturize your lips.
STEP 2: Conditioning-  By locking in moisture, it will allow the lip pencil and lipstick to glide on easier.  Here are my favorite lip balms and moisturizers I recommend to have.

This is my favorite part of achieving a gorgeous lip.
Step 3: Lining the Lips: By using a lip liner you can enhance the shape of your lips. This trick is perfect for those wanting fuller or an illusion of even lips.
TIP:  Outlining the lips makes it easier to keep the lipstick inside the line. It is a  must-have.

Now it’s time for Long Lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick. Matte Lipstick is still a trend every since it hit the market it has no sign of going away anytime soon.  The texture and color is long lasting and perfect for weddings, photoshoots and waterproof. Following my lip care regime will definitely  make your matte lips last longer!

She Wore A Textured Crown Skin Kissed By The Sun

To describe a sunkissed woman, would be describing the earth’s elements. She is the dirt that grows nourishment and the wind that chills a hot summer day. The water that sustains life, and the very same valleys that carry them. She is the sun fueling itself.
