Guest Post: How To Make Any Glossy Lipstick Matte By Dinosaur DancesThursday, April 24, 2014
As Corrie is off having an amazing time in Orlando, I was lucky enough to be able to write a little something for the lovely Dizzy Brunette readers. But before I get cracking I think a little introduction is required, I'm Lucy and I blog over at Dinosaur Dances, but unfortunately I blog about beauty and not dancing dinosaurs…
Now onto the post! Have you ever opened those Muji drawers, picked out the perfect lipstick shade but it's glossy and you're after a matte finish? Well before you run to the nearest MAC counter and buy a new one, hear me out!
Just apply your lipstick as normal but then grab a flat top fluffy brush and either a translucent powder or similar coloured blusher. Gently push the powder all over the lips and hey presto, a matte lipstick.
Here I've paired Maybelline Colour Whisper in Cherry on Top with Arbonne Blusher in Taffeta and MAC's MAC Red Lipstick with MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural in Light.
One quick trick that doubles your lipstick wardrobe, but we could all do with another MAC lipstick anyway right?
