    1. The nudey brown matte lip trend— popularised by the the Kardashians, Fashionnova models, and Insta baddies— is still going strong.

    2. ...But after years of minimalistic taupe colours all over Insta, we're finally seeing the return of the unabashedly saccharine pre-recession hot pink or fuschia lip. (Perhaps we have Hustlers to thank for bringing back this entire aesthetic!)

    3. Speaking of bold lips, how cool is the out-of-this-world iridescent lip trend? Shine on in 2020, you crazy diamonds!

    Vegan, cruelty-free makeup brand Lime Crime has nailed this trend with their range of Lime Crime Diamond Crushers Iridescent Liquid Lip Toppers. Get them here:

    Trip - ₹3,257

    Strip - ₹2,997

    Meadow - ₹7,224

    4. Wet lips (another early 2000s trend) are in, and you can achieve this look with a clear, high shine gloss to channel Mean Girls, High School Musical, and other movies you loved back then.

    Beromt Metallic Mermaid Lip Gloss, Shiny - ₹99

    5. "Patent leather" lips are in. This look combines bold colour and high gloss to attain a look akin to a shiny, new pair of pumps.

    Attain this look with M.A.C. Patent Paint Lip Lacquer - ₹2,200 (Several shades available.) You can also achieve this look with your existing matte lipsticks. Just apply the matte lipstick and then top it with Beromt Metallic Mermaid Lip Gloss in Shiny - ₹99.

    6. Until recently, ombré lips were in— well-defined on the outside with liner, and lighter on the inside. Now, "blurred lips" are in, which are more pigmented on the inside, and the colour fades towards the natural outline of the lips.

    Accomplish this look with Etude House Dear Darling Water Tint - ₹634 for a set of three colours. The colours include: Cherry Ade, Strawberry Ade, and Orange Ade.

    7. The bright neutrals trend palette consists of shades that are formal enough to wear to an important work meeting, yet bright and fun enough to wear to a pool party at a hot resort with your besties.

    MyGlamm Manish Malhotra Soft Matte Lipsticks have some shades that nail this trend. We recommend:

    Coral Affair - ₹930

    Eternal Rose - ₹852

    8. And you'll definitely want to try this fresh vampy wine lip trend, which channels female villains from '90s Bollywood movies, or Kate Winslet on the red carpet for Titanic.

    9. The adventurous among us will want to take this gothic trend a step further with the blue lip trend.

    10. A classic red lipstick is always in style, of course, but it's also very much in fashion for 2020.

    For a liquid matte, go for Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in 220 Ambitious - ₹500 .

    Their Sensational Creamy Matte range has some affordable lipstick options:

    Divine Wine - ₹238

    Siren In Scarlet - ₹249

    11. Naturally plumped up bee-stung lips are still going strong. Get them without having to do the Kylie Jenner lip challenge by getting a lip plumper.

    12. And finally, just a nice healthy bare lip is in, so as always, doing nothing is fine too!

    While this isn't a "look" per se, you can keep your mouth looking ship shape with a good lip scrub like the Berry Blush exfoliating lip scrub - ₹200 , a 100% natural scrub made of butter, cane sugar, and cinnamon. For a lip balm, go for Neutrogena Norwegian Formula lip balm - ₹155— it's affordable and effective, and will keep your lips soft and hydrated.
