Kylie Jenner inspired lip tutorial with NYX, Essence & MUFE

The Kylie Jenner lip.  We've all heard of it at this point and if you haven't, we got problems girlfriend...  She's brought the 90s lip back with a bang and while she hasn't quite gone down the brown lips route just yet, she's been rocking the matte dark dusky pink lip like nobody's business.

Now nobody knows for sure whether she's gotten her lips done as she's denied plastic surgery rumours (who you kiddin' Kylie?) , but I'd put a few bob on it that there are some fillers in there and combined with the serious amount of overdrawing she does, she's got a killer shape now.  I can't overdraw my lips too much because I feel like a numpty, but a little bit of careful shaping is good enough for me.

As I'm on a spending ban (again), I had a root through my stash to see if I had anything that I could use to create this matte lip and these three products spoke to me.  After playing around with them a bit, I knew I was on to a winner!

NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil 721 Soft Fuchsia, Essence Lipliner 04 Honey Bun, MUFE HD Powder
Let's get down to business with this quick and easy 4 step tutorial shall we?

Step 1

Starting off with Essence Lip liner in shade 04 Honey Bun, draw around the outer edges of the lips.  Overdraw as much or as little as you like.  Taking time to get the right shape is time well spent, so don't rush it!

Step 2

Colour in the rest of your lips with the liner.

Step 3

To give the lips more dimension, I used NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Shade 721 Soft Fuchsia all over the lips, stopping at the outer edges.  This is slightly lighter in colour to the liner so gives the illusion of more plump lips.

Step 4

We all know that it's the matte effect that really gives the Kylie Jenner lip, so I took some of my Make Up For Ever HD powder and dusted it over the entire lips, patting it in with my fingers to make sure it was all absorbed in.

And that's it!

If you're looking to give the Kylie Jenner 90s lip a go, then have a squizz in your stash.   Any dusky pink lipliner will do the job and any translucent powder will give the matte finish we need.  My lips are nowt like hers and if I went all out, overdrew the living Jaysis out of them, you would think I'd lost my dang mind.  So this is a wearable version that I'd happily go out in public with!

  3. LOVE this, I'm gonna need that NYX lip yoke! And speaking of which, how is that even called 'Soft Fuchsia'? Nothing fuchsia about it!

  4. I need to get that Essence lipliner shade! I love how creamy they are and that one looks perfect for me x

  5. Christ I was around for the original 90ies lip where people used brown eye liner to line their lips... I shudder and I shudder every time I hear 90ies lip

  6. I love a 90s lip, but that may be down to all the Beverley Hills 90210 re-runs I've been watching! Your lips look fab, I can't overdraw mine either, I look like a blow-up doll!
