What Is the Blurred Lip Look?

What Is the Blurred Lip Look?

Think you need bold, matte lips to stand out this season? Think again! Soft, blurred lips are back in a big way for spring, and we know the secret to pulling off this petal-soft look.

Bold lips are a classic in the beauty world, but just as the seasons change, so do the hot trends. And if what we’re seeing on social media is any indication, blurred and blotted lips are the new “it” look—picture the stained look after biting into a juicy berry or eating an ice pop. This means it’s time to swap out opaque products for soft and oh-so-chic ones. 

Not quite sure how to achieve the blurred lipstick look? Not to worry—this style is simple to pull off and will become an indispensable part of your beauty routine. Let’s learn more about the blurred lip look, what products you need to achieve it, and how to apply the rest of your makeup for a cohesive look ideal for all your warm-weather occasions. 

What is Blurred Lipstick?

Blurred lipstick provides a subtle flush of color, much like the blotted lip trend that recently took the beauty world by storm. Compared to typical matte lips with ultra-defined lines, the blurred lip look is sweet and romantic. If you want to hop on this trend, you’ll need the right lip products to pull it off. Remember that we’re going for sheer washes of color and super smooth finishes.

The trick to a perfectly smudged lip lies in the application. First, you’ll prep your lips. Gently exfoliate with our Golden Wet Cherry Lip Scrub and layer on a moisturizing balm for the perfect base for your blurred lipstick. Once the balm is fully absorbed, add our Ghost Veil Lip Primer for a blurred lip base with staying power. 

To achieve a soft, blotted look, tools matter. You’ll want to use a fluffy brush and gently blot product onto lips, adding a subtle burst of color that complements any makeup look. Juicy pinks and reds are classic options, but you can be as creative with your color choices as you want.

For quick application and touchups on the go, you can also use your fingertips to dab the lipstick on and smudge out any harsh lines. To get a gorgeous ombre effect, focus color on the center of your pout and create a softer, more subtle look at the outer corners.

Which Lipsticks Work Best for the Blurred Lip Look?

Lime Crime is known for bold, long-lasting color, but we’re flexible! Our Plushies Soft Liquid Lipstick and Soft Touch Lipstick are fabulous options for achieving effortless blurred lips. Both products have smoothing formulas that help lips look soft and full, whether you apply them directly to the lips or pat them on with a brush or your fingertip.

No matter which one you just, just be sure to skip the lip liner—blurred lips don’t require the same kind of definition. You’ll also want to avoid long-lasting matte products for this trend. The transfer-proof formula is great for all-night glam, but it can make smudging difficult. For the best results, stick to softer, creamier products that are easier to smudge and sheer out. 

Want to add an extra juicy twist to your look? Add a clear or glitter gloss! However you want to customize the blurred lipstick trend this season, we know you’re going to rock it.
