With a few quick-and-easy beauty looks in the bank, you can be equipped for anything. And, there’s no simpler way to dial up your look than a bold matte lip. Starting from the base up, follow these steps and achieve a perfect velvet finish every time.

  • Apply foundation to clean, moisturised skin, blending with a foundation brush for a seamless finish

  • Use a cream concealer to hide undereye shadows and blemishes, lighting patting in with the finger tips

  • Lightly powder over concealer and foundation then curl the eye lashes

  • Make sure your lips are prepped: a lip scrub will smooth and prevent cracking while primer is a must for staying power

  • Using a fine lip brush, outline the lips with the lip colour

  • Once you are happy with the outline, fill in the rest of the lips

  • Make sure you get right into the corners
