Don’t like glossy lips? No matte-r! This season, matte look lips are trending, so it’s time to embrace a long-wear, sophisticated finish. Matte lipsticks can give a modern finish that complements the fresh, dewy complexions of springtime, so if you’re opting for fresh, gorgeous, radiant skin, a matte look can be the perfect contrast. When selecting the best matte lip colours for spring, consider shades that are flattering, comfortable to wear, and on-trend.

Nude Matte Lip Colours To Invest In For Spring

For a timeless, effortless look, explore the world of nude and neutral matte lipsticks. Nudes are always a classic and flattering choice, and they pair beautifully with the soft, romantic makeup looks that are perfect for spring. Neutral matte shades create a polished, put-together appearance without overwhelming the rest of your makeup. They also have the added benefit of being highly versatile, allowing you to easily transition your lip look from day to night.

Bold Matte Pops of Colour

While neutral mattes are a safe bet, don’t be afraid to experiment with bolder, more vibrant matte lip colours this spring. Adding a bright pop of colour on the lips can really make your whole look feel fresh and modern, which is the perfect way to prep for the new season. Bold matte lipsticks instantly elevate any makeup look, adding a touch of drama and sophistication and making a statement, whatever the occasion.

Long-Wearing and Comfortable Mattes

Nobody wants a lipstick that’s drying or uncomfortable, especially during the dry and warm spring and summer months, so opting for a nourishing, comfy matte lip colour is essential. There are colours out there that combine comfort with matte colour, so look out for products that contain nourishing ingredients like shea butter or vitamin E, which help to keep lips hydrated and smooth.

TOP TIPS For Matte Lips

Start with well-exfoliated, hydrated lips. Use a gentle lip scrub or balm to remove any dry, flaky skin.
Apply a thin layer of lip primer or concealer to the lips, which will help the lipstick adhere better and prevent feathering.
Carefully apply your chosen matte lipstick, starting at the centre of the lips and working outwards. Blot with a tissue to remove any excess.
Set the lipstick with a light dusting of translucent powder, which will help to mattify the finish and increase longevity.
Carry your lipstick with you for touch-ups throughout the day, and be sure to reapply after eating or drinking.
