Monday Must Have: Matte Lips!



My latest MUST HAVE: Matte Lips.


Hello Fashion Dolls,


I seriously have a problem. I cannot stop buying matte lipsticks! They are just SO amazing, for SO many reasons:

 1. They stay on for a LONG time.
2.You can smooch your significant other and your color won't end up on their lips.
3. You can eat and drink, and they won't come off the way regular lipstick does.
4. Even the bold colors come across as more of a natural look.
5. Won't sweat off.
6. Once dry, won't smudge on your clothing.
7. The color on your lips matches the color in the tube.


 To me there is nothing more annoying than having to reapply your lipstick every time you eat or drink something. Most mattes will stay on while noshing, unless the food is super oily...and even then your color will just need a little touch up.
Most men LOVE lipstick on women, but they don't like wearing it themselves after a stolen kiss. Matte lipstick will stay put on your lips, where it belongs, unless you decide to engage in a make-out sesh. Even then, the color doesn't end up on them, it just needs to be touched up on you.
I think the MAIN reason I love them, is they look more natural than glossy lips, and they stay on for a LOOOOOOONG time. Usually I only need to touch up my lips once a day, which is amazing. Gone are the embarrassing moments of busting out your iPhone camera, multiple times a day, to fix your lips.

LAYERING TO MAKE NEW COLORS

My obsession has been fueled lately when I started mixing colors to make new ones. By mixing, I mean layering one color on top of another to make a new color.  For example, sometimes the bright and bold red of Jeffree Star's "Red Rum" is not the color I'm trying to achieve that day. So, to make it a little less bold, and a slightly creamier color, I will layer on a lighter color (e.g. "Celebrity Skin") on top. 

Steps to layering:
Put one layer of darkest color on first. 
Let it dry completely.
Put one layer of lighter color on top. 
Let it dry.

You can continue to add the second color until you've achieved your desired color. Usually I like it with just one coat of the second color, but have fun and play with layering!
