Pink matte lipstick is a great way to finish a variety of beautiful looks. Did you know that matte lipsticks can actually make your lips look bigger? You just have to apply them correctly. Moreover, wearing the right pink shade for your skin can bring a makeup look together to make your complexion look amazing. Today, we will explain how to choose the right shade, provide a few makeup tips, and explain how to apply pink matte lipstick like a pro. Let’s get into it!
Before we get into the guide on how to apply matte lipstick like a pro, we have to help you find the right shade of pink for your skin. As you may already know, skin has undertones that can be warm, cool, or neutral. Knowing what your skin tone is will help you choose the right shades, not just for your pink matte lipstick, but also for all your makeup.
If you have a warm skin tone, we recommend considering pink shades that have more orange or yellow in them. Such as pink corals, hot pinks, clean pinks, peach, warm fuchsia, and even pink beige. For cool-toned skin, the best shade options are cool fuchsia, mauve, and pinks that have more blue or purple in their pigmentation. Lastly, if you have a neutral skin tone, you can use any pink shade that falls in the middle of cool and warm pink. We recommend shades like dusty rose, neon pink, mid-tone pinks, and more.
It’s also important to consider the depth of your skin when you’re choosing a pink shade. For example, if your skin is light, choosing a light pink shade will make you look washed out. It won’t pop like you want it to. If your skin is dark, going for a shade of pink that’s too dark may not register as well as a lighter shade. So, keep this in mind.
Now, matte lipstick application is a bit of an art. If you want to learn to do it correctly and make your lips look amazing, follow these steps:
The first thing you need to do is prep your lips, so do this before you start applying your makeup. It’s very important to remove dead skin cells from your lips, so exfoliating them with a lip scrub will work well. Once you exfoliate, you should apply lip balm to your lips and leave it on. This will help moisturize your lips so they’re nice and smooth. When you’re ready to apply your lipstick, which is usually the last step in the routine, remove the lip balm well.
Before you even touch your pink matte lipstick, you need to get a lip liner. Lining your lips is not a step you should skip. Why? Because it will keep your lipstick from bleeding around the edges. Essentially, the lip liner is a barrier, creating a cleaner lip makeup. If you’ve ever wondered what the girls do to have super crisp matte lips, lip liner is one of their secrets. Make sure the lip liner is in a similar shade to your natural lip color or to the lipstick you’ll be wearing.
If you’re using tube lipstick, you should start with the middle of the top lip. Move smoothly to the corner of your mouth and then do the same on the other side to connect your cupid bow. Then, follow the same process for your bottom lip. If you’re using liquid lipstick, remove the excess from the tip of the applicator so you avoid any mess. Use even strokes to apply the product on your lips, starting with the center so it’s easier to distribute. Take your time, stay within the lines of your lip liner, and enjoy the process.
It’s not always easy to determine what makeup goes well with pink matte lipstick. Especially not if you’re a beginner in the makeup world. Consider these pointers:
A pink matte lipstick is one of those makeup products that you can wear on any occasion. You just have to make sure the rest of your makeup doesn’t make you look overpowered. If you’re ready to find a good pink matte lipstick, browse Banffee Makeup’s selection!
