The Top 5 Lip Trends You Need To Know About
Naturally Plump No-Makeup Lips
Whether you’re bossing it up at work or crushing it in the weight room, this no-fuss trend keeps your pout perfectly plump and flushed. The trick is to overline your lips with a nude shade that matches your skin tone, so it looks like you’re wearing no makeup at all.
Step 1: Outline your lips with ColorStay™ Longwear Lip Liner in Blush or Natural, or any other neutral shade that matches your skin tone. To make the look pop even more, go over your lip line just a tad—remember, it’s all about looking natural!
Step 2: Apply a nourishing lip balm like Revlon Kiss™ Balm to your entire lip and blend.
Step 3: Top it off with a touch of Super Lustrous™ Glass Shine Lipstick in Nude Illuminator.
Fake A Lip Flip
Not feeling Botox or fillers? Get fuller lips with this jaw-dropping fix (it went viral for a reason). You only need a few makeup must-haves to achieve an instant lip lift: lip liner, lipstick, foundation or concealer, and translucent powder. Here’s our twist on the wildly popular hack.
Step 1: Grab ColorStay™ Longwear Lip Liner in your favorite nude shade and create a line above your upper lip at the center (emphasizing your Cupid’s bow) and just below the center of your bottom lip.
Step 2: Trace the rest of your lip line, moving the liner inside your lip line as you glide it towards the outer corners of your lips. Blend lightly.
Step 3: Fill in your lips with our iconic and most-loved Super Lustrous™ Lipstick in any shade that blends well with your lip liner.
Pro Tip: For an extra plumping boost and super-crisp finish, apply a dab of ColorStay Skin Awaken™ 5-in-1 Concealer to highlight the edges of your lip line. Then, set it with a translucent powder like ColorStay™ BLOT Setting Powder for long-lasting, potentially kiss-proof wear.
The Blurred Lip Stain
You don’t need to rely solely on sheer, dewy products to create a minimalist, just-bit-my-lips kinda vibe. Matte lipsticks are also power players when it comes to creating a luscious, everyday lip stain that looks as good as it feels. It’s all how you play it.
Step 1: Lightly apply Colorstay Matte Lite Crayon™ in any shade to the center of your lips, then firmly press your lips together.
Step 2: Smudge the color across your lips using your finger and reapply Colorstay Matte Lite Crayon™ on the center of your lips, then blot with your finger.
Step 3: Dab a cream highlighter, such as PhotoReady Rose Glow™ Face Gloss, along your Cupid’s bow and the center of your bottom lip to finish.
It’s a favorite of our girl, Megan Thee Stallion. This standout two-tone lip trend puts a luxe spin on the classic ’90s lip. Nowadays, this statement look frames the lip so that the darker liner feathers onto the lighter center of the lips, creating an artful gradient effect.
Step 1: Select a lip liner darker than your lips and the lipstick shade you’ll use to fill in your lips. Try Megan’s go-to combo: Colorstay Matte Lite Crayon™ in On Cloud Wine (the darker lip liner) and Air Kiss (the lighter lipstick shade).
Step 2: Line your lips with the darker shade, then fill in your lips with the lighter color. You should see a noticeable contrast between your lips and your lip line.
Step 3: Blend the lip line with a lip brush to soften the contrast and create more of an ombré effect.
Exfoliated Soft Glow Lips
Glossy, healthy, glowing lips are so in these days. Not surprisingly, this brilliant look begins with your lip care routine. Exfoliating your lips on the reg helps create a smooth, kissable canvas—a self-care must if you want a comfy, sophisticated shine that keeps going strong.
Step 1: Prep lips with Kiss™ Exfoliating Lip Balm to remove dry or dead skin and create a super smooth lip base.
Step 2: Apply Super Lustrous The Gloss™ or Super Lustrous™ Glass Shine Lipstick for an irresistibly juicy, but never-sticky finish.
Pro Tip: If you want a little more pow, add a matte layer to your look. After exfoliating your lips, apply Colorstay Matte Lite Crayon™ and follow it up with a touch of gloss on the center of your lips. .
