The #LeopardLips Trend Is Taking Instagram By Storm

New year, new trends. We always look forward to this. What colors will be in trend? What shades? What patterns? What shapes? Will it be cool to wear bright things? Or should we stick to neutrals? I guess what I’m trying to say – it’s an exciting time. At least for those of us who follow trends and are interested in fashion.

So, as you’ve guessed by the headline, the current trend is leopard lips.
This trend isn’t exactly new. I’d say it’s a twist on an old trend. Leopard print was probably at it’s peak in the 80’s and it’s been popping up here and there ever since.

People have a lot of feelings about this trend. Some love it and wish it would come back in full glory, others hate it and wish it would finally die down. Honestly, I’m not sure if either one will ever happen. I think this trend will continue to intrigue people for years to come.

But that’s enough about history, let’s get to the matter at hand. The leopard lip trend is taking Instagram by storm and there’s many variations of it. People are certainly playing around with colors and textures. Some choose to use bright, neon colors, others try to stick to nudes, some even try to recreate the actual animal print colors. Let’s take a closer look at all of these.

If you’re wondering how to recreate this lip trend you’ve got two options. Get some matte lipsticks for the base color and use eyeliner to draw the spots. Here’s a little tutorial for you.

Or take the easy way out and just get yourself some temporary lip tattoos from ViolentLips. They’re easy to apply and last up to 8 hours. Plus, if you really want to, you can put lip-gloss on top of the temporary lip tattoo to make it shinier. Here’s a demonstration on how to properly apply the temporary lip tattoos.
