Do you remember the 90s trend where brown lipsticks with layers of lip gloss were SO in? If you were a fan of your favourite celeb wearing that trend, you’re in for some good news. This lip gloss trend is back, ladies and with an upgrade! The only difference is, people are not wearing it with lip liners two shades darker than their lip colour and we are extremely thankful for that.
All your favourite celebrities from both Hollywood and Bollywood are sporting this lipstick trend at various events. From Rihanna, Cara Delevingne to Priyanka Chopra, everyone is in love with this 90s trend. This shade is earthy and warm without being too dull or neutral and is absolutely gorgeous!
There are various shades in brown which means there’s one out there for every girl. Finding the right shade of brown lipstick according to your skintone can be a tad tricky and that’s why we are here to help you find the perfect shade. So let’s go back to the 90s with the right kind of brown shade!
For girls with fair skin, it’s best to go for something that is peachy brown, like the colour of a latte. It will complement your skin tone very well and give you a stunning bold look. Make sure the rest of your makeup is neutral and the gorgeous lip shade stands out.

For girls with deeper skintones, it’s always best to go for a colour that is the same shade as your skin. It makes for a gorgeous and effortless look as it can be your right shade of nude. Also, make sure to not wear a shade lighter than your skin colour. When in doubt, go for a shade darker than your skintone instead, it always works!

If you have a medium skintone with warm undertones, you can go for more offbeat shades, such as metallic copper. If your lips are naturally slightly red, this kind of shade can look absolutely stunning. This shade is both fun and unexpected, which is a great way to pull off this back-to-school trend.
If you’re slightly pale with yellow undertones, go for something with a cappuccino-like hue. A good brown-nude can lift your entire look, instantly. If your lips are pink in colour, we suggest you dab some concealer or foundation in order to mute the pink.
