The Honey Lips Trend Is Here To Give Your Makeup Look The Golden Touch
Honey lips, a trend first coined by TikToker Eva Larosa, involves giving your lips a golden hue with the use of a lip scrub, liner, lipstick, and your favorite golden eyeshadow.
"This hack brings a gorgeous, luscious glow that's almost dripping off your lips," makeup artist J Guerra told Allure. Its golden hue "adds warmth to any makeup look."
Before trying honey lips, ensure your lips are smooth and well-hydrated by wearing an overnight lip mask or balm the night before, then use a lip scrub to remove any dead skin.
When your lips are hydrated, use a neutral-tone lip liner to trace the shape of your lips, followed by a few dabs of gold eyeshadow on the top and bottom center of your mouth.
Finish the look by applying a tinted gloss or neutral-tone lipstick. Bring it all together by using the same shade of eyeshadow on your lids.
Beyond their glamorous look, honey lips are also great for lip health. They can be achieved with any product high in antioxidants, not just honey-based products.
