Kendall Jenner’s bringing back the red lip

The nude lip trend’s time may be up

Beauty Crew Editor / May 25 2017

One of the biggest beauty trends of 2016 has been the nude or neutral lip. We’ve seen it everywhere from runways and red carpets to cafes and the offices, proving it’s a shade that’s not only for low-key everyday looks, but that it can be dressed up for a more glam look, too. 

But Kendall Jenner, model of the moment and star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, may have just put a pin in that with just a few posts on Instagram and Snapchat, which had her showing off the most beautiful bold red lip.

Pairing the red-orange hue with perfectly defined brows, an effortless messy topknot and some chic accessories, it took all of a minute for Kendall to inspire us to go out and stock up on everything possible to recreate the look.

While the shade on her lips looks very similar to the now-discontinued Estée Lauder Kendall Lipstick, it looks like the Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick in Volatile is a close match. For the same kind of definition and colour in your brows, try blinc Eyebrow Mousse (which comes in eight shades, so you’re bound to find the perfect colour match) or Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Brow Lift Duo if you prefer a pencil, and when it comes to that effortless topknot, keep it loose and high, with a few strategic pieces out to frame your face.
