Amazing Nail art Ideas

You chose to go with a glossy red pout, and you’ve nailed it. A few hours in and you finally catch a glance in the mirror. Nothing seems like it did before. Your supposed-to-be-sensational masterpiece has now mysteriously reduced to a not-so-hot mess. Oh and where’s the color gone? Should’ve had the second beer, anyway! Sounds a lot like your daily lipstick struggles, right?

You need a matte formula that doesn’t make you pick between comfort and long-wear performance. You could be all over the place right now in your life and that’s even more reason why you shouldn’t settle for a lip color that does the same. Meet matte lipstick. With texture that spells power and formulation that lasts through a kiss (or many), you’ve basically found yourself a keeper. Indestructible, if you will.

 

What We Love About Matte Lipsticks

• Richer and deeper finish

The higher concentration of wax and pigment makes matte lipstick shades rich, deep, and opaque with a longer staying power. This makes it a more practical pick over its glossier cousin for everyday use.

• It’s liberatingly stick-free

Remember the last time you flipped your hair and ended up getting sticky gloss on a stray strand? Well, a matte based lipstick promises to do better. Cue to ace the hair flip game.

• All season, smudge-free

Whether you’re braving the blazing temps, chilly mercury dips or sudden showers, matte lipstick color comparatively stays on for longer and doesn’t smudge off easily because of sweat, smog or rain. Talk about all season.

• Unlike your tote bag, it’s mess-free

Matte lipsticks make avoiding random lipstick smears a breeze as they are transfer-proof and smudge-proof. You may need a post-lunch touch up but we’re not complaining because this guy’s easy to carry.

• You get what you see

Know how they go “for representational purposes only”? Well, matte doesn’t do that to you. You get the exact color payoff as depicted on the tube.

 

How to apply matte lipstick

  • Step 1: First exfoliate your lips with a lip scrub to buff away dead skin. This helps for a more even application
  • Step 2: Now gently massage your pout with a hydrating moisturizer and follow it up with a lip primer.
  • Step 3: Outline your cupid’s bow and bottom lip with a lip liner that matches your natural lip color. This prevents color from feathering beyond the lines.
  • Step 4: Swipe the bullet in short strokes starting from the centre of your upper lip towards the ends and gradually start filling in the color. Repeat on the lower lip.
  • Step 5: Goofed up? Dip a cotton swab in micellar water and gently wipe off the excess. You’re now ready to take on the world!
