Sip & Pout: Dive into the Cherry Cola Lip Trend with These Lip-Smacking Tips & Tricks!

Get ready to pucker up because the cherry cola lip trend is here to add a delicious pop of colour to your makeup routine! Born in the nineties and popularised right now on TikTok, this 2023 trend is fun and flirty. Keep reading to learn our juicy details on how to nail this beauty craze.

Prepare to jazz up those lips and unleash the ultimate cherry cola pout! For step one, grab that trusty brown and burgundy lip liner, your secret weapon for lip magic.

Begin by tracing the outline carefully, making sure to shade in those corners for a fuller, juicier pout. It’s all about creating the illusion of luscious, irresistible lips, and the key is to use a liner that’s deeper than your natural lip tone.

Now, let’s talk lip liner favourites! My go-to is the Morphe liner in “Bite Me.” It’s creamy, perfect for medium-dark skin tones, and compact enough to toss in your favourite handbag. Plus, it stays put for the long haul!

Another essential is the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in “Pillow Talk Intense.” It’s a total game-changer—kiss-proof, pigmented, and all-day perfection. It’s a lipliner worth every penny!

And for an extra touch of staying power, consider adding a lip stain to the inner part of your lips. Benefit’s Benetint Lip & Cheek Tint is a top pick—buildable, long-lasting, and fabulous and allows for a great base that will add to your look.

Now’s the time to take your lip game to the next level, and it’s all about that cherry red lippie! Whether you’re a lipstick connoisseur or a liquid lipstick lover, this is where the magic happens and where you add your favourite cherry red or whatever red suits your fancy lipstick. For extra oomph, grab your brown liner and deepen those outer lip corners – it’s like giving your lips a little contour love.

Next up, it’s lippie time! If you want a subtle shine, the Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey is your go-to. It’s like a secret weapon that works its enchantment on everyone, offering sheer balm and gloss goodness in one fantastic product.

But if you’re more of a bold and long-lasting kind of gal, say hello to the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Lipstick. This powerhouse lasts 16 hours, is ultra-pigmented, and you can kiss, eat, and conquer the world without a smudge.

Plus, that lip brush? It’s your secret weapon for precise application, ensuring your cherry cola lips stay put through all your adventures.
