You can always count on us to fill you in on the latest beauty trends and we’ve got the info on the newest addition to the make-up world: the ‘jelly lips’ trend. The great news? It’s easily attainable and rather fun to create. Jelly lips pay homage to glossy, shiny lips – so if you’re a bit of a gloss gal, this trend is made for you. Although it’s been a favourite within the world of K-Beauty for ages, it’s made a comeback around the globe, and women of all ages are donning this super-wearable lip look.

The best thing about this trend? You can customise it to suit your make-up look. Anything goes – from nudes, reds, pinks, corals… Even two-tone jelly lips are welcome! As long as your finished look has a high-gloss look, consider yourself part of the jelly lips squad.
So, what are you waiting for? Now’s your time to shine.
Get The Look:
Step One: Use A Matte Lip Colour
Matte textures promote longwear, especially when it comes to your lip colour. Choose a matte lip product (this can be a lip stain or lipstick) according to the jelly lip look you want to achieve. In our case, we’ve gone for a light, ultra-feminine pink hue (we’re in Barbie mode, okay) to use as our priming colour. Apply the creamy Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse in Dusty Rose onto the middle part of your lower lip and then press your lips together in order for your top lip to get a thin layer of the lipstick.
Step Two: Use A Lip Brush
Lip brushes are the perfect tools to up your lip game. It adds more control to your application and allows you to spread the formula evenly across your pout. A lip brush also works as an excellent buffer – use the MAC 316 Lip Brush to buff your matte colour gently over the entire lip. But, remember where you applied your matte lipstick initially in the middle of your lower lip? Make sure you keep that colour the deepest hue, blending outwards in an almost ombre sort of effect. The reason for this is we want to create dimension. (You’ll see in step three).
Step Three: Layer, Layer, Layer
Using a layering type of application, coat your lips in a clear lip gloss to make them look plump and radiant. The end goal is to get them looking as ‘juicy’ as possible, without disturbing the ombre colour created by your lip brush. The glossier the finish, the better.
Remember, you have free rein when it comes to creating your desired jelly lip look. As long as you layer it with a clear gloss, you’re good to go.
