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.
On Instagram, beauty addicts are painting their pouts with varying hues of metallic-toned lip colour. From vivid shades of blue to more innocent and wearable browns, the latest lip colours are infused with metallic sparkle.
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 eyeshadow 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.
Here’s a closer look at the trend, for anyone who is tired of pale pink lips or sheer gloss this season.
