Makeup trends may come and go, but what remains forever is lipstick! No matter what kind of makeup you are walking with, either it’s a no-makeup makeup look or a heavy party look, lipstick is the final thing that helps to complete that glamorous look!
Matte lipstick is definitely the game changer in any makeup look, and for a good reason. Matte lipstick is of course the best lipstick ever to wear, as it is super easy to apply, helps to create a plump-fuller- lip look, and most importantly does not transfer or bleed easily like other lipsticks.
But, the toughest thing about applying matte lipstick is it doesn’t go away as easily as other makeup products! It may be a quite difficult task to remove matte lipstick for many of us, so if you are one of them, then this article is for you to discuss how you can easily remove a matte lipstick while removing your makeup from your face.

How To Remove?
Once you are ready with the cleanser and the Q-tip, you can take a Q-tip and dip it into the cleanser, apply the tip gently on your lips, and let it sit for a few minutes.
Now, to wipe out the cleanser, use the other side of the Q-tip and wipe off your lipstick.
We recommend using Q-tip to remove matte lipstick because they do not spread the color around the lips or any other part of your face.
You can repeat the same process 2-3 times(until your lipstick is totally gone.)
This method not only helps in removing the lipstick but also acts as an exfoliator and removes the dead skin cells from the lips leaving a smooth texture.
Simple Tips To Remove Lipstick
