“Gym Lips”: Beauty Trend Not To Miss this Summer
Contrary to what its name suggests, it is not something related to gym workouts, but a simple makeup trick that will make your lips look plumper, with no injections required.
The name of this beauty trend was coined by American makeup artist Kelli Anne Sewell, who wanted to describe the enhanced "no makeup" look she sports when she hits the gym. In a video shared on her TikTok account, she explained that “it looks like you're wearing no makeup, but just have plump, juicy lips.”
The American makeup artist revealed the secret behind these dreamy lips: all you need is two beauty products only. “The key is to use a lip liner in the exact same color as your lips,” mentioned Kelli Anne Sewell in her tutorial while demonstrating to the camera.
Here are the steps to follow for the perfect result:
• Highlight the edges of your lips to accentuate the hemline
The result: your mouth will look "thinner" and enhanced, as if after a "Russian Lips" style hyaluronic acid-based beauty treatment. As a bonus, your lips will be perfectly hydrated.
Simple and accessible tip
Videos of amateurs and professionals abound on social networks to reproduce this makeup tutorial before going to their workout. Kelli Anne Sewell admits that her technique is far from "futuristic", but she explains this success by the simplicity and the fact that "everyone has these products at home."
This trick is not reserved only for those who sweat at the gym (and no one forces you to put on makeup before going either). Kelli Anne declared that this look can be worn at the airport as well as the grocery store, "anywhere you want to look good but not made up."
