Beauty brands like Too Faced, MUA, Jeffree Star and of course, Kylie Cosmetics, are creating metallic liquid lipsticks that give a super-sheen, but, dry down matte, making them a *tad* easier to pull off than the super-slick, glossy versions. They’re still a LONG way from lip balm territory though, so steer clear if you’re easily spooked bold makeup.
While matte lipstick may have once been a must-have for your makeup bag, it looks like metallic lips are set to steal the spotlight this year.
If you’re aiming to master the trend yourself, try pairing your bold and eye-catching lips with subtle eye makeup and glowing skin. The look of long, luxurious lashes and softly flushed cheeks can easily contrast with a brilliant pout, while a refreshed visage helps to lock in the deal.
For those who are willing to rock an over-the-top look, Smokey eyes and smudged eye shadow can transport a metallic lip to an entirely new level. Meanwhile, beauty addicts are also straying from the norm and sporting mixed shades of dark metallic violet and gold.
Minimalists can also appreciate the look of burgundy or dark pink metallic lips, for a wearable everyday take on the trend. Add dark eyeliner, a coat of mascara and prepare to stun as you embrace a metallic-infused pout..
