Embracing Natural Beauty: The Rise of ‘Lip Combo’ Trends on Social Media

In a notable shift towards embracing natural beauty, individuals are exploring alternatives to lip injections while maintaining a focus on achieving plump, luscious lips. Social media platforms, particularly TikTok, have become hubs for beauty enthusiasts sharing hacks to achieve fuller lips without resorting to fillers.

As beauty aesthetics move towards a more natural look, beauty trends are emerging that emphasize enhancing lips, making them more vibrant and full. Recent viral trends include diamond lips, cherry cola lips, and latex lips, all aimed at achieving shinier and fuller lips without the use of fillers.

The latest trend, known as ‘lip combo,’ has gained popularity on TikTok, with the hashtag amassing over five billion views. The technique involves a throwback to the 1990s practice of outlining the lip contour with a pencil. ‘Lip combo’ typically combines two products, such as lip liner and gloss or lip liner and lipstick, to create a defined and full lip look.

This technique, while seemingly straightforward, has become a sensation on TikTok, with numerous variations and creative approaches shared on the platform. Celebrities like Hailey Bieber, Taylor Swift, Rosalía, Megan Thee Stallion, and Kylie Jenner have embraced the trend, showcasing ‘lip combo’ looks regularly.

Model Emily Ratajkowski even shared her ‘lip combo’ tutorial on TikTok, featuring the use of a lip liner for contouring and a volumizing lip balm for filling, combining both makeup and skincare elements in one.

The ‘lip combo’ trend has not only gained traction among beauty enthusiasts but has also become a playground for experimentation. Sofia Richie, for example, introduced a unique twist to the trend by using a blend of two glossy lipsticks in distinct shades, topped with a concealer for added plumping effect and an ombré finish.

The trend reflects a broader movement towards embracing one’s natural features while incorporating playful and creative makeup techniques. ‘Lip combo’ not only offers an alternative to more invasive procedures but also provides individuals with an opportunity for self-expression and experimentation in the realm of beauty.
