To recreate this look I dabbed a small amount of lipstick on the center of my bottom lip and used my ring finger to blend it out. I then rubbed my top lip and bottom lip together to transfer some of the color, then basically repeated these steps until I had the desired effect. I find it best to start the color in the middle of your lips and diffuse it outwards towards the edges. One of the reasons I love this is because you can keep it light or you can build it up to be intense, but still soft. Another major pro is that it can be done messily and still look really cool.
Some of my favorite darker shades to use are the Nars Audacious Lipstick in Audrey, the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 107, the Maybelline Matte Lipstick in Siren in Scarlet, the Revlon Matte Balm in Standout, and the Maybelline Lipstick in Plum Paradise. For a brighter take I love Maybelline's Shocking Coral and for a nude take Maybelline's Touch of Spice is beautiful (can you tell I'm really into Maybelline lipsticks?).
One of the best things about this trend is that you don't need to go purchase a whole slew of new things, but rather you can find something that works in your own makeup stash. When this trend began to show up I dug through my over extensive lipstick collection and found tons of shades that looked so cool. And, since I'm all about versatile products, this is just another thing to add to the list of other ways to use lipstick.
Would you try this trend?
