Return of the matte!

Matte lipsticks are my go-to lip choice. Why? The upside in opting for a matte lipstick is the color wears for lengthy periods and wont shift or smear easily. The down side is matte lipsticks are dry and can pull moisture away from lips. A simple solution is applying lip treatment at night.

If you choose to go matte, go bold! Mattes come in all shade, do what works best for your complexion. I am inspired shades of tangerine, bright fuchsia or take inspiration from celebrities like Prianka Chopra and Rihanna and go for fleshy based nude tones. 

My favorite matte lipstick is M.A.C. Cosmetics, Ruby Woo itโ€™s vibrant and long-wearing. I have a tube of this ravishing red in every single bag. I but them in threes!
