Here's How To Recreate The Metallic "Foil" Lip Look That's Crazy Popular Right Now

Getting tired of dull, dry, matte lip colors? Let’s talk about being bold! The one lipstick craze that I’ve been seeing everywhere, from runways and magazines to Instagram?  Metallic “foil” lips. I’m usually not one to go all out with my makeup looks, but this is a trend that even I am on board with. Check out these cool looks:

A post shared by Charlie Joe (@sofairisshe) on

Crazy pretty, right? Metallic lips are totally different from a shimmer or frost finish. The finish on a true metallic lip look is opaque and dries almost matte to the lips. Even though it isn’t a gloss, the bonus to the metallic finish is that there is still depth and shine.

There are a few different ways to achieve this on-trend lip look. One is to find the perfect metallic lipstick. Some of our favorites that we can recommend to achieve this look are the ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks, Kylie Cosmetics Metal Liquid Lipsticks or the Touch In Sol Metallist Liquid Foil Lipstick Duos.

If you already have a go-to lip color that you don’t want to stray away from, you can amplify the shade by trying one of Urban Decay’s Special Effects Topcoats. This genius product turns your everyday lip look up a notch, and it’s perfect for transitioning from day to night.

Don’t want to invest in a new lip product at all? Here’s a quick hack: coat your lips in a thin layer of gloss, then pack a shimmery metallic eyeshadow on top of it.

Are you bold enough to try this lip look? Tell us in the comments!
