Move over winged liner, for the new viral makeup trend – lip wing is here!
Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner… You name it, they’re doing it. The Lip Wings trend is followed by most of your favourite celebs!
While most of us still struggle to get the winged eyeliner right, a new ‘lip wings’ trend has hit the market and sent beaut-izens into a craze! No surprisingly, the trend has already surfaced on social media and is a huge sensation too!
Now what is lip wings, you ask? Similar to the winged eyeliner, this new lip trend mimics the same by giving the lips a winged-out effect. The trend gives the effect of bigger plumped-up lips and pout. Taking inspiration from the flamboyant Bratz dolls that were popular in the 90’s and early 2000’s, the trend gives an overly dramatic change in your look.
No need for surgery or fillers, just try this trend for a lifted finish on the lips. All you need is a lip liner and a lipstick or gloss, as you prefer and that’s it!
Need more help? We put together a step-by-step process to make it easier for you. And find below a list some of our favourite lip wing looks from influencers.
Step 1: Exfoliate and moisturise your lips.
Step 2: Take a lip liner (choose one that is a shade darker than your natural lip colour).
Step 3: Start outlining the upper and lower parts of your lips.
Step 4: Create the wing at both ends of your lips by flicking the line upwards to create a lifted winged look.
Step 5: Once your winged outline is in place, you can either blend the lip liner gently onto your lips for a more natural look and then apply a lipstick or gloss of your choice.
Step 6: Blend well to avoid any harsh lines from sticking out.
