The trending lipstick shades for spring reach way beyond pigment. The latest look calls for a rich hue in velvety matte. The colors-du-jour are variations of coral, tomato red, and shocking pink — however, if you’re not into bold lips there are more muted shades in a matte texture that are just as stunning.
To pull off a matte lipstick your lips have to be prepped and healthy, otherwise they’ll look cracked and dry. Remember my DIY lip scrub? It’s exactly what you need to prep your pout.
Beauty tip: If you’re going for heavily-hued lips, keep everything else clean and neutral.
