But then, how to get ‘honey lips’? As we have seen, it is not necessary to dig into your pantry to reproduce this beauty trend… A lip pencil, a gloss, and an eye shadow are more than enough to tackle this task. To begin, as is customary when working the mouth, it is advisable to erase the dead skin with an exfoliant to ensure that you obtain very smooth and uniform lips. Then come the fateful steps: apply a gold-colored eye shadow at the level of the Cupid’s bow and in the center of the lower lip, underline the lips using a pencil of the same shade as the lips or slightly more dark, then finish with an ultra-shiny gloss. That’s it, your lips will be both luscious and sparkling.

A refreshing and sweet beauty

The ‘honey lips’ are part of a broader trend observed for several weeks in the world of beauty: the desire to draw inspiration from drinks and other sweet treats to perfect your summer makeup. Witness the ‘syrup nails’, which have accumulated 8 million views to date, espresso makeup, which is characterized by tanned and full-bodied makeup, or even strawberry makeup for a “sunkissed” effect and healthy glow.
