Semi-matte lips may be the newest trendWhile stains and glosses are often a summertime go-to, some of Hollywood’s hottest stars have recently been rocking a slightly more opaque lip lacquer.

Gillian Jacobs, best known as Britta Perry on NBC’s hit show Community, worked her way around last weekend’s Comic Con with a matte pink pout. Jacobs emphasized her bright lips by wearing minimal makeup on the rest of her face.

At the season four premiere of her show, Mad Men, in New York City, January Jones also donned matte lipstick. The actress opted for a nude tone that complemented her smoldering smoky eye makeup.

However, unlike many matte mouths, both women’s pouts featured a slight sheen, which kept the lips from looking chalky and dry.

There are a couple ways that women can duplicate this look. Girls can apply a product with a powder-finish, such as Sothys Matte Lipstick, and top it with a clear lip balm that boasts a hint of shine.

According to Glamour.com, ladies can also apply a glossy lipstick and “matte it down” with a dusting of translucent face powder, like Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Translucent Pressed Powder.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19912176-ADNFCR
