Or for a complete breakdown of how to create these lipstick looks at home, follow these four quick steps:

Step 1: Primer

Swipe on a lip primer.

Step 2: Lip Liner

Line your lips with a matte lip liner that matches your lipstick shade.

Step 3: Lipstick

Apply your matte lipstick. For better accuracy, work the color in with a lip brush.

Step 4: Concealer

Clean up the edges of the lip with a cotton swab and makeup remover. You can also apply a little concealer around the lips to get rid of any rogue color.
