Diamonds truly are a girl’s best friend, so much so that diamond lips are now trending.
The new makeup trend is feminine and subtle, but adds just the right dose of sparkle and shine to your lip look. What makes it even better, is it’s incredibly simple to master.
Dominic Skinner, MAC makeup expert and Glow Up star, told Metro.co.uk: ‘I’ve been seeing diamond lips everywhere and it’s so pretty.
‘Highlighting your cupids bow is nothing new, but this technique and product choice is – and that’s what makes it fun and exciting.’

You can get the look in just three simple steps…
Dominic said: ‘The key is to use a brighter highlighter than you might expect.
‘Something that has a sliver or champagne tone works best as it pop against your skin tone to look crystallised.’
This can be in the form of a highlighter, shimmery eyeliner or silver lipliner.
Dominic said you want to make sure it’s ‘swept generously over the cupids bow and centre of the bottom lip and then pressed out makes lips look poutier and fuller’.

TikToker Eva Larøsa, pictured above, showcased the trend using the Pillow Talk lipliner from Charlotte Tilbury, and softly lined the corners of her lips to make the edges a little more defined.
Once you’re shimmering, Dominic advised finishing off ‘with a layer of lip balm or lip gloss, like MAC Clear Lip Glass’.
‘It’s super simple and easy to do but the effect is really impressive,’ he added.
The beauty community is all about the glossy looks in 2023, and if you love diamond lips, you’ll probably also adore lip gloss nails.
