This Makeup Hack Turns Any Lipstick Super-Matte

The lips we're seeing at the New York spring collections aren't glossy or stained. They're packed-on, powdered-down, and undeniably matte. In fact, we're calling them the "super-mattes" — and you're going to start seeing them everywhere.

They swept it over stains and liquid lipsticks to turn the formulas into wildly matte, super-soft textures. Click ahead for some serious makeup inspiration — and grab your nearest pink, red, and orange powders to get started.
