How to Change Lipstick Texture for More Matte Finish Lipsticks
Here is a simple trick to reformulate the texture of your lipsticks to give them a more matte finish.


Matte lipsticks have that beautiful satin finish that is extremely popular right now.  If you appreciate that suede lip look and gorgeous smooth finish, then you might want to try this makeup tip to transform your lipstick texture for more matte finish.

To accomplish this goal to reformulate your lipstick for more matte finish, you are going to need a creamy texture lipstick, a tissue, loose translucent powder, and a brush.

Apply your creamy textured lipstick first to begin this process to alter lipstick texture for more matte finish.  Next, you’ll need to separate a two-ply tissue, which you are going to lay over your lips.  You’re not going to blot.  Instead, you’re going to dust some powder lightly on your lips. When completed, lift the tissue and apply a second coat of the lipstick.

For that second coat of lipstick, you can stick with the same creamy shade or grab a different shade to alter the color, if you so desire.  Regardless of which lipstick you choose, you need to repeat the process with the tissue and dust on more powder, then lift once again.  This technique will give your lips more of that matte finish and additional lasting power.

Your ingenuity knows no bounds.  Another interesting way to alter that lipstick is with pressed eye shadows.   Use cotton swabs for this and save yourself the trouble of washing any loaded brush or applicator later that you lay over the lipstick.  Blot with the single sheet of tissue and deepen in the same way as the first method.

I hope you try this makeup trick to change lipstick texture for more matte finish because it can come in handy to give you more looks from the lipsticks that you already own!

    This is a great way to change your lipstick and have more variety. I like the idea of using eyeshadow, that would really open a new range!

    I always blot my lipstick. It’s such a good trick. Helps keep my lipstick off my glass when I drink.
