Matte lipstick has been all the rage lately, but finding your favorite in matte can be difficult or costly. And honestly, who wants to search all over when you have that perfect shade in your makeup collection already? So why not turn your already excising lipstick matte with one easy and cheap step? And I'm pretty sure 90% of you already have this magical ingredient in your kitchen as we speak. I'm of course talking about cornstarch, which is a treasure trove of beauty applications if you take the time to do some research. Or you can wait till I cover them all on this blog of course.
To do this tutorial you need your lipstick of choice and a little bit of cornstarch. That's it. Easy peasy. This post was originally suppose to have pictures of my lovely face but I woke up sick and less than lovely so you get hand swatches instead sorry.
