BG Beauty School: Transform Satin Lipstick To Matte

While we fully advocate for running out (to Bergdorf Goodman, of course) and splurging on fall’s newest matte lipsticks, we’re also huge fans of a good beauty hack. So when Cassandra Garcia, Editorial Makeup Artist at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, shared a cool lipstick transformation trick with us, we just knew we had to share…

This is a great trick we use at Fashion Week or in real life. You can transform your own lipstick into different finishes. Whether it’s a great traditional lip color or a creamy formula, you can use these steps to create a velvety, matte finish. – Cassandra Garcia, Editorial Makeup Artist at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics



Apply Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Red...

Use a lip brush or apply straight from the tube…there is no wrong way. Option: You can then use your favorite lip liner to smooth out the edges and create a perfectly defined lip.


Get ready to mattify...

Take apart a two-ply tissue to create one-ply. Apply a small square of tissue to the lips and with your favorite soft brush (Eye Shadow or Eye Blender Brush) lightly dust the tissue with a loose translucent powder (we like Bobbi Brown in Pale Yellow). The tissue works as a soft filter to absorb the excess moisture from the lip color and leaves a velvety finish without changing the color of the lipstick.


The big reveal...

Remove the tissue square and…voila! Hello, matte lips!
