When it comes to lip trends, we’ve seen it all, with overlined lips dominating the 90s (and making a comeback in recent years) to pillar box reds establishing iconic status thanks to the likes of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and Gwen Stefani. We’ve had the brief and rather questionable blue lip trend owing to Kylie Jenner, and this season, OTT lips returned to the catwalks for Dsquared2 and Vivienne Westwood.
Though lip fillers were the most searched cosmetics treatment of 2021, we see this look fizzling out in favour of a more natural beauty look and we hope that classic lipstick and liner tricks take over as a safer and more affordable alternative if not – remember plumping glosses?
Some trends stick around as beauty bible, while others are short lived attempts at changing the future of beauty. With this in mind, we wanted to delve into lip trends through the eras to see how makeup has evolved, and the staple looks we will continue to see time and time again.
