What does everyone think of the 90s trend of brown/nude lips with darker lip liner that's made a come back?

It’s wrong. It was wrong then and it’s wrong now. Don’t do it.

Awww man. I saw a girl doing her make up on the train the other day and she did it. She looked brilliant. She was very pretty though so maybe she'd have looked good either way.
Maybe I'll try it in the privacy of my own home?

It looked cheap in the 90s and looks cheap now.

Oh no another vote for no. The girl kind of smudged the liner into the lipstick so it wasn't a harsh line.
I'm 32 so I missed it the first time round really grin

It looked shit then we just didn’t know any better.

I never did it but other girls did.

It reminds me of some women who have permanent make up: black lipliner, so whatever colour they are wearing as a lipstick, the lipliner is always darker. I think it looks horrible. Esspecially when it’s combined with a very light pink pearly/frosty lipstick as seems to be preferred as a combination with the black lipliner by said ladies.

Though this look from MAC is beautiful for a night out!

I think some people do a lip contour where they smudge a lighter shade at the very centre of the bottom lip to look more voluminous.

I think lipliner should be completely undetectable, going over the edges of the lips looks terrible.

I love 90s makeup!

What ever you think of Kim Kardashian - I think she is rocking this look.

@Exp1etiveDeLighted I agree that over lining is a horrible trend.

@Cmagic7 she looks fab!

If I give it a go, I shall post results!

Those 2 pics make me think the look is updated in line with the popular trend to contour. It's more faded in a shadowed than it was in the 90s.

I liked it at the time but there's no going back.

Reminds me of a Bratz doll, but I do actually like it! grin

And as they say, if you're old enough to remember it first time around then you're too old for it now, lol

I'm definititely 'stuck in the 90's'blush I do (i think) a subtle version of this - with a browny/pinkish lip colour & slightly darker brown lip-liner. Gives definition/stops it looking smudgy possibly looks naff but i like it

Bluntness100 Sun 10-Nov-19 08:43:33

I also do a subtle version of this, but not in brown, I use Charlotte tilbury pillow talk lipstick which is a nude pink colour and mac plum lip liner but I never go outside my lips and also shade it, so there is never harsh line, more my lips are slightly lighter in thr middle.

The harsh line outside your lips, or even a harsh line is a bad look.

marriageisafullonmerger Sun 10-Nov-19 09:15:43

Yay or nay?

marriageisafullonmerger Sun 10-Nov-19 09:16:59

Will have to name change now grin

carolina21 Sun 10-Nov-19 09:37:51
