’90s lips

DIF­FI­CULTY 1.5/3 Kiss good­bye to your Kylie Lip Kit: An­nakiki’s A/W 18 look is proof that the bold brown lip doesn’t have to be matte. To get the ex­act grey-brown shade, Pixi’s global direc­tor of make-up, Amanda Bell, says you should “choose a deep brown lip­stick and mix it with a lit­tle dark choco­late liq­uid eye­liner on the back of your hand. The pig­ment in the liner will neu­tralise any warm or cool un­der­tones in the lip­stick”. Use a rounded lip brush to ap­ply the colour pre­cisely and fin­ish off with “a touch of oily-tex­tured lip balm for a vinyl fin­ish”, says Bell. You’re glossy-posse ready.



For­get about touch-ups – this smudgy lip look seen at the Cha­layan au­tumn/win­ter cat­walk show looks best a lit­tle bit worn in. And ac­cord­ing to Bell, you can use any fin­ish of berry lip­stick, but the key is in the ap­pli­ca­tion. “The best way to achieve this is to use your fin­ger to pat the lip­stick onto the lips,” she says. To get the rock ’n’ roll matte fin­ish, Bell has a top tip: “Take a tis­sue and pull it apart so you have two sheer pieces, then rest one of them on top of the lips to soak up any ex­cess sheen. The fin­ished re­sult should look as though you’ve just bit­ten into a juicy berry or plum.” Tasty.


DIF­FI­CULTY 2.5/3 The punchy pink at the cen­tre of Self-Por­trait’s A/W 18 om­bré lip just steers this look away from full-on goth. For the opaque petrol blue, Bell says us­ing a pen­cil eye­liner is your best bet (the pig­ments will be bolder than those in your aver­age lip prod­uct). Mak­ing sure it’s su­per-sharp, line your lips with the pen­cil, then shade in the outer part of the mouth, leav­ing a patch in the cen­tre bare. Us­ing a brush, ap­ply a creamy fuch­sia to the cen­tre of the lips, then, us­ing a fin­ger, “gen­tly tap the pink into the deeper petrol shade to soften the look”. Pucker up and you’re good to go.
