The matte lip look and how to pull it offIt's fine that gloss got to enjoy its heyday, but for anyone who's gotten a little tired of the uber-reflective pouts that have been dominating the makeup scene, good news is on the way – spring might lend more opportunities to wear a sophisticated matte lip.

"Makeup artist James Kaliardos gave us this matte lip trick: Fill in lips with a pencil and dust a bright blush over the top," Glamour.com reports. "Craving shine? Add extra gloss to the center of your lips."

Ladies may also want to use a matte-textured lipstick in order to achieve this look. Also, you can always dab regular lipstick on your mouth, blot with a tissue and set with some translucent powder to seal it in.

For an excellent matte lipstick, try Sothys Matte Lipstick, Youngblood Lipstick or Bare Escentuals Merlot Lipstick on for size.
