Don't be afraid of dark lip liner! Thanks to the 2022 beauty trend, you can put on full lips like the stars of the 90s.
Now please keep calm and take a deep breath: Yes, the dark lip liner will be back in summer 2022, a look at the runways and the Instagram feed leaves no doubt about that. Fans of the 90s revival in fashion and beauty will now erupt in a storm of enthusiasm, while those who still can't quite come to terms with the comeback of block strands, thin eyebrows, tooth jewelry and the like will probably turn their noses up.
However, rest assured: the more you see the retro make-up trend, which - and this is its big plus point - conjures up wonderfully full-looking lips, the more you will like it until you do it at some point and want to try it yourself. And when it comes to dark lip liner, there are of course a wide variety of variants from subtle to striking, which can cater to every taste. Here we present them.
In the 90s, they were part of the signature look of stars like Pamela Anderson (whose style is popular again thanks to the hit series "Pam & Tommy") or Destiny's Child: dark-rimmed lips. No wonder, after all, the clear contours, which were then filled in with gloss or lipstick in a lighter shade, made even thin lips look defined and voluminous. When the 90s passed, the beauty trend fell into oblivion in favor of natural nude make-up or red femme fatale lips and at times was even considered a no-go because that looked too artificial.
That's over now! Because like many other fashion and beauty trends of the Nineties, dark lip liner is now being rediscovered by stars, models, and designers. In her Spring/Summer 2022 show, Donatella Versace, for example, showed a subtle make-up, in which the contour of the lips was traced in a slightly darker shade of brown, whereby the contrast to the rest of the lipstick and gloss was not too extreme and the transitions were gentle was.
Striking versions were seen on the spring/summer 2022 runways of Christian Cowan and Victor Glemaud, both of whom celebrated the style of the 90s with extremely dark contoured lips, with the former also underlining this with loud and colorful party looks.
For all those who still don't like the clearly defined contours, we were even able to discover a third variant of the beauty trend during Fashion Month: several lipstick nuances that shimmered from brown to orange could be seen on the in-label KNWLS, which were blended into each other, giving an effect similar to dark lip liner but less "hard".
Lips in brownish or berry shades, which go particularly well with tanned skin, are particularly popular in the summer of 2022 (as in the 90s). If you want to dare to try dark lip liner, you should proceed as follows:
Convinced? Finally, one last argument for the 2022 beauty trend: lip liner prevents the color of the lipstick from running into the expression lines around the mouth. This increases the durability of the lipstick considerably and the look stays perfect all day long!
