It seems as if the trend of matte lipstick in the beauty world is not going anywhere anytime soon. This is a product that can move and enhance your look with just one stroke. However, while embossing your look, a matte lipstick is also the highlight if you have any roughness or imperfections on your lips. A matte formula dries quickly on your lips and if you haven’t pierced your lips, it’s only going to look attractive with flakes on your pout. So, there are some rules that you should follow before putting your hands on these absolute beauties!
Scrubbing or exfoliating your lips
Scrubbing is not only good for your skin and body, but it is equally important for your lips. Before applying matte formula make sure that you have removed all the dead skin cells that have accumulated on your lips. Rubbing your lips once or twice a week will help you remove that stubborn pigmentation from your lips that will make you look healthy and great.
If you do not want to invest in any market product then you can make your own organic lip scrub at home. For which you will need 1tsp white or brown sugar, 1tsp coconut oil and a few drops of lemon and jojoba oil with fine granules. You can also add some honey if you want, all these natural products work wonders for your lips. Make sure that you are not using too much pressure while exhaling your lips as this is one of the most delicate parts of your body.
This is the most important step after missing out on your lip care routine, you cannot miss moisturizing your lips. If you are skipping your lip balm, then you are causing massive damage to your lips. Lip balm forms a layer on your lips that protects them from environmental damage as well as nourishes them from within. This prevents your lips from bursting, peeling and bleeding. Therefore, always moisturize your lips before applying any lip color with heavy or dry formula.
When buying your lip balm, always go for the product that hydrates your lips and contains Spf. A lip balm with spf will protect your lips from the harmful sun rays when you step out of your house. It acts like sunscreen on your skin.
Primer for lips
