So, remember that time we reported just a few weeks ago that ultimate It Girl and all around beauty and fashion #lifepeg, Georgina Wilson, jetted off to New York to witness NYFW as the new Maybelline ambassador? Yeah, we still can't get over it. And we still can't get over the fact that she looked super fab during her stay there.
Case in point, this TDF editorial shot:
For Georgina's NYFW look, she used Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick by Color Sensational. It's an all-in-one lippie that's basically a cream lipstick that feels satiny at first then dries into a matte finish. We love that it hydrates while giving our puckers a vibrant color that has super staying powers. You can try all the 9 colors from bold red and pink to coral and nude.
Want to know how to cop this look? Here's an easy step by step guide to perfecting George's New York Fashion Week lippie look.
1. Prep your lips
Before anything else, make sure your lips are pillowy and ready for your matte color. Dry and chapped lips can easily ruin your lip game, so before you swipe it on, slough away dead skin from your puckers. You can use a DIY lip scrub (we swear by mixing olive oil and brown sugar together), a soft toothbrush, or a towel.
2. Make a good canvass
One easy trick to make sure your matte lippie stays on all day long is by patting concealer on your lips. This will also make the color more vibrant, and will allow you to start on a smooth surface so you can outline your lips easier!
3. Color away
Cop Georgie's sexy scarlet pout by outlining and filing your lips with Maybelline Velvet Matte in MAT 9. You can also go for a more sultry vibe with nude lips using MAT 12.
