Experts say that matte lipstick, despite all its obvious advantages, is not suitable for every girl. Generally, make-up using said cosmetic product should be abandoned for those whose face is elongated and thin, and whose mouth is small, with narrow lips. This type of appearance requires a visual increase in volume, and lipstick without gloss, especially dark, absorbing light, "works" just in the opposite direction.
For plump lips, matte lipstick is a universal remedy, because it allows you to emphasize the beauty of the shape and natural volume. It is also useful for a bright evening make-up or for contour correction, especially if it is not ideal by nature.
Modern matte lipstick, as a rule, affects the delicate skin of the lips more sparingly than its early predecessors, which included mainly wax with animal fats and variousdyes. Today, nutrients and moisturizing oils are added to this cosmetic product. However, if you are not sure about the presence of the mentioned components, you can protect the sponges from overdrying with balms.
In order for matte lipstick to lay down perfectly, the lips must first be "prepared". For example, the weathered skin of this part of the face will cause matte-type cosmetics to look like plaster. Therefore, it is necessary to apply a little Vaseline on the lips and massage them with a toothbrush, exfoliating the keratinized microparticles. In the process of makeup, the contour must be created with a pencil that matches the color of the lipstick. This will allow the product not to blur for a long time. In addition, some women (for additional protection against overdrying) lightly powder their lips before applying makeup. At the final stage, the sponges should be gently blotted with a paper towel, and then spread with a powder puff another layer of powder.
Resistant matte lipstick (for example, products from Amway, Faberlic, as well as Givenchy Rouge Interdit or M.A.C.) contain much less oils compared to wax, and dark pigments. It is quite difficult to find a make-up product of such a plan in light colors, primarily because it looks unnatural. Those who want to use matte lipsticks on an ongoing basis need to remember one rule that socialites know: such cosmetics lose their properties when in contact withfatty food. Therefore
after a meal that includes fatty meats or a lot of oil, you should look in the mirror and make sure that the makeup is flawless.
What properties should a matte lipstick have? Reviews of fans of this series report that it should hold well, not roll into lumps, not spread, not dry the skin. Also pay attention to a uniform distribution, which avoids a light stripe on the inner surface of the sponges. In a number of samples, the girls note a pleasant aroma, a convenient case with a reliable “lock”. The latter does not allow the product to open and stain the cosmetic bag, which is an undoubted advantage, because lipsticks of this kind are very poorly washed.
