5 Easy Steps To Prep Your Lips Before Applying A Matte Lipstick

Have you ever wanted to put on matte lipstick, but you felt like your lips are a bit dry or chapped?

Lips, like eyes, are unique structurally. The thinner skin and lack of oil glands make them susceptible to transepidermal water loss, dryness, and irritation. They tend to be chapped during extreme hot or windy weather or cold seasons. 

Just like you have a facial skin care routine, it’s also important to have a lip care routine. In the recent past, lipsticks have gained popularity among many women. When applied to dry, chapped lips, matte lipsticks start to crack and the application does not look flawless. Here, we share quick and easy steps to prep your lips before matte lipstick application.

Start by applying a small amount of petroleum jelly to your lips. It helps to avoid any damage to the lips.

Using a clean toothbrush, gently brush your lips. It is an at-home way to exfoliate your lips and help eliminate any dead skin on the lips.

Clean your lips using an antibacterial wet wipe.

Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to moisturize your lips. Moisturizing the lips helps them stay soft and plump.

Lastly, apply your favorite matte lipstick.
