Forget traditional lipstick, lip balm, and lip gloss - the latest trend for lips today is of the powdered kind. Fear not though, this isn’t anything like the dry, chalky movement you may have seen back in the ‘90s!
So what’s it all about? Well, these modern-day powder lipsticks that glide on effortlessly, are available in a wide range of shades, and have several other neat benefits. And the fact that they leave a matte finish? Let’s just say, they’ve got us hooked!
The power of powder
We know we know, the idea of putting “dust” onto your lips may have you worrying that it will come off the moment it hits your pout. That couldn’t be further from the truth, though. As it turns out, powdered lips are insanely kissable!
The trend is also super easy to achieve. Forget having to wait for your lipstick to dry, like you would with a liquid product, for example. Powder is not only easy to put on; it dries the moment it hits your lips, leaving behind a perfect matte finish. As an added bonus, it’s also incredibly light, to the point that you’ll forget you’re even wearing matte lipstick in the first place.
Getting the look
Now that you have a better understanding of the powder matte lip trend, it’s time to pull it off yourself. Thankfully, powdered products come in a variety of shades, giving you a whole lot of options to truly express yourself.
Let’s be honest, it’s pretty impossible to go wrong with a good red lipstick. If you’re looking to give the powder matte lip trend a bash, start with something like Maybelline’s Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick or Urban Decay’s super-pigmented Vice Mega Matte Lipstick. Getting these products onto your pout is a cinch. Start by applying the lipstick to the centre of your upper lip then following the contours of your mouth. Move to your bottom lip, simply gliding along it, and that’s all there is to it.
Congratulations, you’re now part of the powder matte lip trend that’s sweeping the world. Now, get out there and show everybody the power of your beautiful matte pout!
