Not all beauty trends are created equal, but the ‘90s supermodel look is the epitome of glamour. Fortunately, ‘90s style and beauty trends are back, including the classic ‘90s supermodel lip.
The supermodel lip is lined with brown liner and worn with a nude or brown lipstick or lip gloss. Though it looks beautiful when you can pull it off, it’s not fun when you don’t blend it correctly. Here are three steps to follow to make sure you pull off the perfect ‘90s supermodel lip.
Step 1: Find Your Shade
Choosing your shade of lip liner and lipstick can make or break your look. Celebrity makeup artist Robert Sesnek recommends “using a liner that's only two or three shades deeper" than your natural lip color and using warm shades. You'll also want to pick out a warm nude shade of lipstick.
Step 2: Use Lip Liner
Carefully line your lips with a dark liner, making sure to emphasize the edges and be very careful on the cupid’s bow and outer corners. Fill in the outer half of the lip as well, or lightly feather around the rest of the mouth. Keep a makeup wipe handy for any mistakes.
Some great lip liners with nude shades include the KKW Beauty Matte Cocoa Lip Liner ($12), the Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner ($7.99), and the NYX Professional Makeup Slim Lip Pencil Creamy Long-Lasting Lip Liner ($4).
Step 3: Apply Lipstick and Blend
Carefully apply nude lipstick, starting in the middle of the lips and working your way out. If you’re worried about blending, you can use a liquid lipstick and a brush.
