What is TikTok’s ‘siren lips’ trend?
The siren lip trend is all about defining and accentuating the face for a more dramatic look, using clever makeup. To do this, lipliner is often used to give the lips a sexy, lifted and feline-like pout.
The liner is applied to pull the corners of the lips up, creating a sultry smirk. Some believe the look is a new twist to the popular over-lining lip trend.
Participating in the lipstick trend is very easy. All you need is two lip liners; one dark liner and one nude.
Using the nude lip liner, line your lips as you usually would. From there, you’ll take the dark liner and oval-line your lips, going straight across your Cupid’s bow instead of defining it. Extend your lip liner by flicking it up at the sides, and voila.
For a more exaggerated look, you can just use a clear gloss to blend everything together or apply nude lipstick on top to make it appear more natural-looking.
