Try one of the easiest and most popular methods on the Internet and know for sure how to matte your lips. Do not be afraid for your lipstick to lose its moisturizing effect, as the best benefit of a tissue-powder method is its ability to make you lipstick matte without drying your lips. Follow our step-to-step instructions to get impressive results.

  1. Put your favorite glossy lipstick all over your beautiful lips (make sure to spread it evenly to not repeat the process of mattifying all over again). You can use a lip liner to make sure your lipstick stays in place.
  2. Take a small piece of a tissue and put it on your lips in order to get off the excess glossiness and color.
  3. Carefully remove the piece of the tissue paper from your lips (sometimes that will already get you a matte finish on your lips. Mostly depends on the type of lipstick you use).
  4. Spread a bit of translucent powder with the help of a make-up brush on top of your lips coated in the product ( don’t panic if you can’t see the powder on your lips, it means it has already started working on soaking up the excess lip paint).
  5. Carefully press your beautiful lips together. This will help the powder to spread all over. Do it for as much time as needed until you notice the color on your lips to be matte everywhere.
