When we think of the 90s, theres plenty were thankful weve left behind. Bell bottoms, over plucked brows and butterfly clips
But theres one trend were delighted to welcome back. Brown Lipstick. Unabashed or understated, deep, bold or glossy, take your pick.
Here are the trending brown lipstick shades:
Coffee Colored Pout
First made famous by Friends star Jennifer Anniston, the coffee colored pout is having its moment in the sun again and unlike many comeback trends this one hasn’t strayed too far from the original.
Rich, Chocolate Mocha
Thankfully in its new avatar there’s none of those hideous frosty puckers with mismatched liners. The lipstick trend now is all about luscious, rich chocolate mocha. When it comes to texture, anything goes. Check out Priyanka Chopra who favours a more wearable, glossy finish.
At the other end of the texture spectrum, Kylie Jenner prefers to go matte. The shades too are getting versatile. The nude browns have a more Kardashian/Jenner-esque feel, while the richer, warmer shades can almost look gothic.
Supermodel Gigi Hadid is looking particularly ’90s here. Copy that semi-matte finish by applying a crispy brown lippie all over your lips. Dab with a tissue and reapply to set.
Georgina Wilson also got the trend spot on at New York Fashion Week. She paired her lips with light brows, wispy lashes, and kohled, lined eyes. A sassy brown lipstick is all you need for this naughty-but-nice pucker.
Browns for Daily Wear
Katie Holmes and Katrina Kaif, meanwhile, are sporting a super wearable, everyday shade of brown that verges more on nude than chocolate. All you need is a some lippie love that gives just that pretty sheen and hint of colour!
Matte Brown Lips
Finally, YouTube vlogger Kathleen Fuentes shows you one way to wear matte brown lips. Just keep everything else understated. Pair a swish of lush brown with a flawless face, feathered brows and curled lashes. Smoking hot!
