Wear The Trend: How To Perfect Your Matte Lip For Fall

As a stark contrast to last year’s ultra-glossy lip trend, this season’s must-have pout is a bit more stoically low-maintenence: seen on dozens of spring 2013 runways from London (Giles, Erdem) to Paris (Haider Ackerman, Loewe), the new matte lip trend is a much-welcomed shift, even if we’re adopting it a season early. It may take a little while to warm up to the look, but we all know there’s pretty much nothing worse than getting your hair stuck in the goopy gloss of your lips, so it’s definitely worth getting used to.

Despite the lack of sheen, matte lipsticks are often more moisturizing than their glossy counterparts thanks to their creamy consistency, but the only way to get color to last through your first morning meeting is to start with unchapped lips. This can seem like a huge impediment in the fall and winter, but light exfoliation and the right products can make all the difference.

The night before you experiment with the trend, remove any dead skin cells by mixing two parts sugar with one part olive oil in a bowl and gently rub it on your lips with a washcloth or old toothbrush. Rinse with warm water, apply an ultra-moisturizing chapstick (we love the Sweet Be Magic Wand from Medicine Mama!)

Now that you have the foundation for all-day color, click through the slideshow to check out our favorite matte colors to carry you through the winter months, because we know you don’t want to blot your shiny lipstick on a tissue all day.
