Sometimes, a beauty trend hits our feeds that we literally think only supermodels can get away with. But when the supermodels hit us with a trend that we can totes work, too? We’re onto a winner.
It’s safe to say, from dramatic catwalk makeup to a more paired-back, au naturel look, the Hadid sisters have tried just about everything. Or, at least we thought so…
That was, until, Gigi Hadid stepped out last week wearing GREY lipstick. And nope, you’re eyes ARE NOT deceiving you. The shade that we’d all usually try to avoid in fear of it draining our complexions, is actually now a thing. And, thanks to Gigi revealing that it’s none other than Maybelline’s Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid in Sinful Stone, we’ve now got a new addition to our beauty arsenals.
Want to get the look à la Ms. Hadid? Look no further… we’ve got it nailed:
1. Start with a lip exfoliator to smoothen your pout ready for a heap of matte colour.
2. Line your lips with a clear lip liner. The point, you may ask? The beauty of clear lip liner is that not only will you not have the struggle of attempting to match it to your lip colour (there’s no colour to it whatsoever), it will also stop colour from feathering around your mouth and help to keep your look in place all day. It’s a must-have.
3. Take the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid in Sinful Stone and layer on the colour for as bold or as subtle of a look as you’d like. We recommend going heavy (because if you’re going to do it, you might aswell do it properly, right?) with two or three coats of lippy for an intense kick of colour.
4. This part is optional, but for colour that won’t budge, opt for a lipstick sealer to fix your bold grey pout in place.
Will you be trying out this trend? We'd love to see your results!
