If there’s anything that the beauty lovers on TikTok collectively love, it would be a food or drink-inspired makeup look. From the neutral glam of the latte makeup look to the sweetness of strawberry girl makeup to the vampiness of martini makeup, there is no shortage of beauty looks inspired by a foodie moment.
If you’re looking for some inspiration for your next gourmand lip look, check out the following ideas.
If you grew up in the 90s or are simply a fan of a multi-dimensional lip look, then you’re probably already familiar with the cherry cola lip. A perfect blend between a cherry red lip mixed with dark red/brown tones, this look will remind you of an iconic cherry-flavored drink.
The first step is to go in with a warm brown lip pencil, adjust the color according to how deep or pale your skin tone is, and line your lips in the intended shape.
Then go in with a cherry red lip, like the Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick from the Sephora Collection in “French Lover” ($15), and fill in the lips.
Next, go in with a clear lip gloss of choice and coat the lips in a glossy, pop-soda-like shine and you’re good to go.
A Very Blackberry Pout
While this look may not be as TikTok viral as the other two (yet), this is one of the ultimate food-inspired lips to rock this fall season. Autumn is the perfect time to rock a deeper-toned pout, so why not do one in a color palette reminiscent of an in-season berry? There are a few ways you can go about making your lips resemble a plump blackberry.
First, grab a lip pencil in a dark purple color, leaning cool or warm depending on the undertone of your skin, and lightly overline your lips in a preferred shape.
Next, you can go in with a matte lipstick or a liquid lipstick in a dark berry purple color, like the Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick from the Sephora Collection in “Blackberry Sorbet” ($15).
You can leave it matte, or you can make the look a little more “juicy” with a clear lipgloss placed on top, like the Danessa Myricks Beauty Colorfix in “Clear” ($20), with the pad of your finger or a lip brush.
There’s nothing that screams fall quite like a juicy lip with a velvet matte skin finish. To avoid the horror of having to fix a lip with an already set base, wait till you finish up your blackberry pout, to use a setting powder, like the Joah Beauty Glow Perfecting Powder ($14.99).
For an extra pop of glam, you can match your lips to your nails, like with the ImPRESS Color set in “Little Monster” ($7.99).
The honey lip look is exactly as the name implies, the ooey-gooey sweetness of lips that look like they were glazed in honey. For tips on how to get the look, we reached out to New York-based makeup artist Sofi Chernyak for some advice.
“With gloomy skies, we are all searching for comfort and warmth. I see “honey lip” as the perfect fall-winter spin on the long-beloved clean girl aesthetic. Get creative by mixing a golden highlighter into a clear lipgloss and applying it on top of a soft outline set with a caramel or warm-brown lip pencil. For the perfect match, apply the Kiss “Nude Lipstick” nail set ($8.99) from the Bare but Better collection.”
You don’t have to be a part of the Bey-hive to wear this look, although it would be a great vibe to rock for a Renaissance concert. And because of the warm undertones of this lip look, the honey lip trend would work exceptionally well on those with a neutral to warm undertone.
To add to the soft effect created by the honey lip look, you can give your skin an extra bit of dewy glow by setting your makeup with the Joah Beauty Hydrating Glow Cream Mist ($17.99).
