Deepika Padukone, Tamannah hatia, Khushi Kapoor’s hair and make-up artist Florian Hurel decodes latex lips trend

While not entirely new, it’s a refreshed trend with a contemporary name, shares Florian.

It is often said that there is nothing that red lipstick can’t solve. Yes, lip care to make-up is not an easy task. Given it defines our face, we need to understand how to make it look the best. Celebrity hair and make-up artist Florian Hurel who has styled the likes of Deepika Padukone, Tamannah Bhatia, Khushi Kapoor, Karishma Tanna, Sobhita Dhulipala, so on and so forth speaks on it, especially the latex lip trend.

“Bold shiny lips aren’t a new trend; this style predates the matte finish trend. Previously, we achieved this look by applying a bold-colored lipstick and adding a layer of gloss or balm on top. This technique is still popular, and what sets it apart now is the use of red or highly pigmented colors with a glossy finish, hence the term ‘latex lips’,” he says.

While not entirely new, it’s a refreshed trend with a contemporary name, shares Florian.

“Personally, I’ve applied this style on various celebrities and different looks, finding it more appealing than matte finishes. Latex lips give the illusion of fuller and thicker lips, and the shine is eye-catching. To try it yourself, consider applying a lip gloss over a cream lipstick or simply adding a lip balm on top of a lipstick application. As for celebrities, include Sara Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, and Tamannaah Bhatia,” he adds.
