You know the way your lips look after you’ve eaten fresh blackberries? Perfectly stained, with just enough color that’s almost hard to achieve any other way? Well, we’re here to tell you that creating a blurred lip stain is more than possible—no berries required.
The appeal of a “blurred lip” look is all about its effortlessness. It gives a just-woke-up-this way effect that’s great for everyday wear. Not to mention, choosing a shade that’s just a touch darker than your natural color is a great way to get the no-makeup makeup look. So, let’s breakdown exactly what you need and how to achieve the blurred lip look.
What You Need for Blurred Lips
Most obviously, you will need a lip color. It’s up to you whether you want to use a cream lipstick, a liquid lipstick, a lip stain, or a lip crayon, however we’re partial to our High Vibe Lip Color. It's a lip product that combines the best of each option as it’s vivid, creamy, hydrating, and offers a 6-hour wear time. Convinced? We thought you might be.
If you’re going for that just-bitten effect, we suggest snagging one of our deeper shades like Love, Burst, or Click, but really, you can’t go wrong with any option. Choose a lip color that suits your skin tone, and you’ll feel confident no matter what.
Next up, you’ll need a tissue and our Translucent Loose Setting Powder. The blurred lip look is typically matte which is why these two items will be necessary to the overall effect.

Step by Step Blurred Lip Tutorial
Now that you have everything you need to get the ultimate blurred lip look, you’re ready to go. Here’s how:
Taking your lipstick, apply the color to the direct center of your lips.
From there, use your finger to diffuse the color across the rest of your lips without using more products. You’re attempting to ombre the color out from the center.
Next, use a tissue to lightly blot your lips.
Finally, take one of our velour puffs and press it into your loose setting powder. Tap away any excess before dabbing and rolling the puff across your lips. This will set the lip color and extend the wear.
And voilà! Your blurred lip makeup look is complete.
