Lipstick has had quite a journey, from harsh outlines in the ’90s to creamy, matte, liquid, and now metallic and glitter formulas. Over-outlined, perfectly filled-in, and plush glossy lips, we have seen them all. Among these, the backstage blotted lip trend is probably going to be your favourite.
A variation of the ombré and gradient lipstick trend that made waves in Korea, the blotted lip will remind you of a subtle stain left behind after a long day of wearing lipstick. The more lived in, the better. There’s something almost sensual about the look as if your lips were just bitten. The subtly stained lip not only looks wonderful in person but it photographs well too. Pair it with a muted makeup look for an overall soft-focus effect.
