Metallic Lips Are Going To Be *EVERYWHERE* This Summer

Since Kylie Jenner dropped her metallic lip kits we’ve been seeing reflective pouts crop up all over our insta-feeds. Yep, the youngest from the Kardashian clan seems to be on a mission to revive some of the 90s long-lost beauty trends, from brick-brown lip colours to grungy eyeliner, and now, frosted, shimmery pouts.

Unlike the ever-so glossy metallic lips of the 90s, 2016 has seen formulas reinvented with a matte finish.

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 by bold makeup.

Instgram and pinterest have been slowing feeding our desire to try out the trend, with more and more make-up artists uploading snaps of their drool-worthy pouts.

and with Kylie Jenner rocking the look at Coachella just a few weeks ago, it’s safe to say, come festival season we’re going to be seeing high-shine lips everywhere.

So how in the hell do we pull off heavy metal lips?

As with any liquid lipstick, the key is to make sure you pout is in the best condition possible. Start by buffing away any dry patches with a lips scrub. Then, load up on an ultra-nourishing balm like the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm, to soften. When it comes to applying your liquid lipstick use a precision lip brush to help avoid a wonky lip line, and finally, trace the edges with a touch of concealer for a flawless finish, et voila!
