Lips: 5 Tricks to Update Your Look This Summer

The juiciest, easy-apply trends of the season (and just in time for International Lipstick Day)

Lipstick is always a big question mark when it comes to updating your look for the season — just how different can your lip tricks get from year to year? More different than you think!

Matte Lip

Liquid lipsticks are fantastic for achieving that matte lip look, but if you’re attached to a particular shade of lipstick in a typical tube, one hack is to gently blot your lips with tissue and sweep a layer of finishing powder on top.

Petal Lips

This gradient lip look, popularised in Korea and beloved for that sexy, just-bitten vibe, is easily created: blend a little concealer from the outside of your lips towards the centre, then simply apply your favourite lipstick in the centre of your lips and use the concealer brush to blend outwards to your liking.

“I Woke Up Like This”

This just-out-of-bed lip stain looks best with tousled hair and a devil-may-care attitude: instead of applying your lipstick from the tube, use your fingers to dab colour onto your lips to create a light stain, concentrating on the middle area.

Gloss It Up

Can you even call this a new lip look? Either way, it’s trending this season, thanks to new formulas from brands that won’t make your lips tacky (or worse yet, attract strands of your hair). Layer a clear or glittery gloss over your lips, with or without lipstick underneath.

Perfect Precision

Using concealer or foundation on your lips will allow you to achieve the crispest lip line ever (bonus: if you want to adjust the size or shape of your lips using liner, this is the way to do it) and then fill in with liner before using one of this season’s eye-catching hues with maximum colour payoff.

Bonus: Match It Up

What’s really trending is a look that’s consistent across your face — to match your lipstick perfectly, skip the blush and mix in lipstick with your foundation to dab across your cheeks, or mix it with your liquid highlighter for a custom shade.
