Brown Lipstick's Back!
One thing was missing from the spring runways’ flood of ‘90s nostalgia: the brown lip. Last seen around the same time Drew Barrymore was starring inScream, the intimidating shade has popped up on a range of lips, from Jessica Chastain’s to Olivia Palermo’s—an about-face from the current reign of bright lip colours.
Want to be historically accurate? Start and end with a lip liner. “We used matte liners for that spicy, grungy colour,” Barrymore says of the ‘90s. She recommends (4) Flower’s () in Toffee; we’re also fans of Lancome’s Le Crayon () in Caramel and (3) CoverGirl’s LipPerfection Liner () in Smoky. (For the sake of experimenting, try using your go-to brow pencil—it might sound weird, but it’s matte and the colour already suits your skin.)
If using a pencil on your lips sounds scary, take your cue from Chastain or Palermo and try a glossier brown lipstick. Makeup artist Kristofer Buckle used (1) Dior’s Rouge Dior Nude Lip Blush () in Twill on Chastain at Chanel’s pre-Oscar dinner. Palermo, who also wore Dior, says her shade was just a sample, but try Dior's Addict Extreme Lipstick () in Incognito.
Not sure where to start shade-wise? (2) M.A.C.’s () in 6 Modern Browns offers six different colours, one of which is bound to work (or you can blend until you hit the perfect note). Nars’ new Satin Lip Pencil () in Cognac is easy to use, and (5) Burberry’s new Lip Velvet () in Hawthorne Berry is a true chocolate brown. If you want the matte texture of a pencil in the form of a lipstick, try Kevyn Aucoin’s new The Matte Lip Colour () in Infinite. Once you have your ‘90s lip mastered, be sure to pair with a modern outfit. In other words, unless you want to appear in costume, stay away from plaid.
