A tutorial, which touts the merits of a simple gloss for less than 13 euros to boost the volume of your mouth like an “injection” effect, has millions of views on TikTok.

On social networks, make-up techniques are multiplying to try to boost the volume of the lips naturally, without going through aesthetic medicine. After the “lip contouring” method approved by Victoria Beckham and Mario Dedivanovic, Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist – and which consists of drawing the outline of the mouth with a pencil in order to enlarge its size – a new trick is fascinating the Web.

A tutorial that has more than 67 million views on TikTok would demonstrate the effect of a simple make-up product to plump them up like after an injection session. The object of desire? Sephora’s Outrageous Intense gloss, a hybrid product between makeup and skincare, formulated with chili extract and hyaluronic acid.

If we are to believe the many “crash test” videos posted about her on the platform, all you have to do is apply it and leave it on for a few seconds before watching your lips swell under the effect of the ingredients (with some tingling that can be felt on the way). Its action could last up to several hours, according to testimonies.

It is not in itself a cosmetic revolution, since other brands have already launched this kind of product previously (such as Too Faced or Milk MakeUp). But it is rather its mini-price (€12.99) that seems particularly attractive.

The rebirth of gloss

The flagship makeup trend of 2022, gloss is a must on both fashion shows and red carpets. Bella Hadid, Jennifer Lopez, Hailey Bieber or even Ariana Grande have all already adopted this retro and regressive look to perfection.

Eighteen ways to accessorize your bridal hairstyle with originality

Weddings have resumed despite the context and we like to imagine a hairstyle that will be out of the ordinary. Because it’s the day or never to stand out, zoom in on these accessorizing ideas that will make the difference.

After two years of health crisis which have damaged the wedding sector and forced many couples to postpone their ceremony, the invitations are relaunched. To say yes, future brides already have the perfect dress but sometimes still hesitate on the choice of hairstyle. Because it’s also a way to stand out. Especially since today, the accessories are numerous and are no longer confined to the simple immaculate veil. What to afford the detail that will make the difference.

The floral touch

Last July, Lady Kitty Spencer said yes and if she had responded to the tradition of the very long veil, she also unveiled herself in a most original floral alternative for the evening: a chignon stitched with colorful peonies, as a reminder of her Dolce & Gabbana embroidered bustier dress.

The looks included an illusion baby-blue tulle gown and cape embroidered with cross-stitched flowers.

On the catwalks, the flower is also reinventing itself. At Chanel, the reverse of a capeline is adorned with flowers in delicate fabric. At Giambattista Valli, a single XXL camellia adorns a square. Finally, at Elie Saab, fabric flowers decorate a bold and poetic bonnet.

The veil reinvents itself

If it was considered a moment too classic, here it is again in the race, but in a contemporary version. Colorful at Dior and embroidered with crystals at Chanel… it’s not afraid to reinvent itself. It is also in the choice of its length that everything can be played and the short veil could well change the situation.

The pearl, a precious ally

Because of its color, the pearl is often favored by future brides. It also invites itself into hairstyles but be careful, there too, we divert it and we forget to prick it in a curly bun. We prefer to adorn a ponytail. Or, put it delicately on a parting in the middle like on the Dior cruise show in 2021. It can finally decorate a headband in volume.

The cap

The straw hats, boaters in the lead, had their hour of glory. But if we want to shake up the codes this season, it is rather on the side of the cap that we will look. At Fendi, the visor offers a proud bearing and protects the emotional gaze of the wearer. At Misa Harada, the sailor’s cap is adorned with a veil to better marry the codes of marriage.

The alternatives

Faced with these trends, other alternatives are available to those who want to distinguish themselves. We saw, last summer, the retro headband at Bronx and Banco, the feather headband at Erdem, the ribbon at Giambattista Valli or even the jewelry bar to dress notched hair at Fendi or a short haircut at Laura Biagiotti .
