Tips and Tricks for Keeping Lips Moisturized
As makeup-lovers, you know that matte lipstick can be downright unflattering when it comes to dryness. But dry or chapped lipstick is just a nuisance — not a good look. Luckily, there are ways to keep your lips hydrated while wearing matte lipsticks, even during winter and in chilly office buildings.
Read on for tips and tricks for keeping matte lipstick from sucking moisture out of your pout! one easy way to keep dry skin at bay is by using some sort of moisturizer regularly—something our readers swear by.
Use A Lip Scrub
Lip scrubs are one of my favorite skincare tools because I think they can be a quick, effective way to keep your lips moisturized. Lip scrubs can help remove dead skin cells and make your lips look smooth and healthy. They also give you an excuse to use sugar as an exfoliant (which is fun!). For example, with matte lipstick it’s more important than ever that you keep your lips moisturized.
Using a lip scrub once a week will make sure you have healthy lips and will also allow your lipstick to go on evenly without any chunky bits on your lips. Try our Honey & Jojoba Lip Scrub!
Add in Skin Care Products
Adding in a regular skin care routine will also keep your lips moisturized. Additionally, you should use a primer before putting on matte lipstick. Choose one with extra SPF protection so that your lips remain hydrated throughout your day! I recommend elf Cosmetics Skin care Primer. Then, choose a non-sticky lip balm like Colour pop Ultra Matte Lip (in Yacht Life) with SPF 20 and Peppermint oil to prevent chapping while keeping those lips soft!
Finally, you can use Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay High Performance Blush in Tipsy and add in some moisture with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (Mineral Oil Free) if needed. Pairing products together can leave your skin moisturized longer with matte lipstick!
Add in a Lip Mask
Lip masks can be a great way to keep your lips moisturized with matte lipstick. If you’re a lip-product lover, you may already know that there are lots of benefits to adding lip masks into your beauty routine—and one of those is keeping your lips hydrated while wearing matte lipstick.

Using balms is a great way to keep your lips moisturized while you wear matte lipstick. If you don’t have access to balms, Vaseline or an intensive lip moisturizer works as well. Apply these products every few hours when wearing matte lipstick and your lips will be fine. Just remember that taking breaks every so often is helpful for any type of lipstick, matte or not.
Letting your lips dry out can make them crack, and that’s painful and unappealing in anyone. Keeping your lips moist not only helps with color application but also with comfort throughout your day. A little bit of moisture goes a long way!
Hydrating your skin is incredibly important, especially when you wear matte lipstick. Just like with any other moisturizer, drinking water regularly will keep your lips nice and hydrated. Try keeping a glass of water on your desk at work or at home so that you remember to stay hydrated throughout your day. If you find it difficult to drink enough water, add some slices of citrus fruits or cucumbers (full of antioxidants) or add a few sprigs of mint for flavor.
