This story is brought to you by the M Crowd — the wildly talented group of makeup influencers who create exclusive content just for Makeup.com.
We’ve all come across those beauty and fashion influencers on our feed who make an adventurous makeup look seem totally chic and as casual as an everyday cat-eye liner and mascara routine. Recently, we've been particularly obsessed with bold lipstick paired with little to no eye makeup — a social media famous look that will convince your readers that you’re the chillest gal on their Instagram feed (even if you’re far from it). We recommend pairing it with a Pinterest-worthy outfit of choice for optimum results.
It may seem like everyone who rocks the look on social is fierce and slightly untouchable, but that shouldn’t scare you away from debuting the look yourself. We reached out to the M Crowd for their best tips and tricks about how to pull of the look, ranging from perfecting your complexion to lining your lips before applying lipstick.
“BE CONFIDENT and slay that look.”
“I love this look. It’s so chic! Focus on your brows and skin. Brows will frame your eyes and an effortless flawless foundation will complete the look without stealing the spotlight from your lips.”
“My main tip would be confidence! A natural face and bold lip is one of my favorite looks to wear because you don’t have to worry about a lip color that will match a dramatic eye — so as long as you’re confident with it you will pull it off!”
“If your lips are going to be the focus of your look, be sure your application is crisp and clean. Using a lip liner is imperative so that your lips are shaped precisely. Keep the eyes neutral with no more than a soft crease shade and winged liner.”
“The lip always needs a liner! and the eye always needs a neutral/skin tone base to create a clean and polished look.”
“I’d say just go for it! If I skip out on eyeshadow and eyeliner, I will apply some Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara or Colossal Big Shot Mascara just to give my eyes a boost. Other than that, you have to own it and just do it! I love the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick for this because they stay put all day.”
