Presenting… a video by the M Crowd — the wildly talented group of makeup influencers who create exclusive content for Here, Lonyea is going to show you how to get a perfect matte lip just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so we tapped M Crowd Influencer Lonyea to teach us how to create a lip look that’s kissable and looks good all night long. Watch the tutorial, ahead:

Step 1: Exfoliate!

Sloughing off those dead skin cells is essential to smooth and flawless lipstick application. Lonn is a huge fan of the Clarisonic Lip Prep Cleanser, a special brush head designed to buff and polish your lips.

Step 2: Highlight!

Using Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Gold, Lonyea highlights her cupid’s bow to make her lip color pop. Accentuating the cupid’s bow will make any lip color stand out and draw attention to a bold lip color.

Step 3: Apply!

Lastly, go in with your favorite matte lipstick. Lonyea recommends the NYX Powder Puff Lippie in the color ‘Muddy’. It’s a cross between purple and pink which she says is, “perfect for Valentine’s Day.”

Step 4: Clean it Up!

To get sharp crisp lines, use a flat definer brush to clean up the edges with your favorite concealer. You won’t disturb your face makeup ,and you’ll hide any makeup mistakes you might have made.

To Remove: Once you’re done with your lip for the day, use the Clarisonic Lip Prep Cleanser to wipe off your lipstick with ease. For stubborn formulas, use an oil-based cleanser to breakdown your lippie.
