How to Turn Any Lipstick Matte

We all know the obvious use for toilet paper but it does come in quite handy in other ways to. It's ultra convenient and compact when toning down lip color to a matte finish. I'm going through a matte lipstick phase and I'm not going to spend money replacing my lippies collection when I already have my perfect shade, lots of toilet paper, and translucent powder.


The lipstick I'm using has a thick, waxy 80s sheen about it and I'd like to tone it down and give it all day staying power as I only apply it once a day (on a good day).

How to Mattify Any Lipstick

Step 1: Before matting your lipstick, do a little self care first. Make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized. You don't want lipstick mixing with dry skin and forming crumbs.

Step 2: Apply a first coat of lipstick and then blot it with your trusty tissue.

Step 3: Apply a second coat of lipstick. Take a sweep of translucent powder and dust it over tissue covered lips. Remove tissue and done.
