As fashion trends from the year 2000 are becoming popular once again, many people are reminiscing about the things they loved during that era. The iconic Bratz dolls have made a comeback, showcasing their bold makeup and outfits that were adored by many. Recently, the dolls have partnered with popular brands such as Puma, Cult Gaia, and Dolls Kill. The dolls now exhibit diversity in skin tones, hair colors, hairstyles, and makeup styles. Fans who grew up loving the dolls and their unique characteristics can now fully embrace their personalities and try out their looks for themselves. “The fans have grown up and are now able to live out the dreams they once had through the dolls,” said Bratz creative director and Cult Gaia founder Jasmin Larian in an interview with WWD. “The Bratz dolls encouraged imagination and a passion for fashion, creativity, and non-conformity. They were almost like rebels, thinking outside the box. They represented a voice of a generation that can now act on who they are and express themselves based on what the Bratz dolls inspired them to be.

If you’re a Bratz fan, you have probably dreamt about looking like one as you admired their impeccable fashion and makeup looks. Today, one lipstick trick can help you get one step closer. This lip hack will give you amazing Bratz-style lips, also known as winged lips. The best part is that it can be pretty easy to achieve.

Outline your lips

The trick to achieving a Bratz lipstick look is in the overlining of your lips. This technique has been around since the ’90s and grew in popularity when Kylie Jenner’s lips became a hot topic. Using this same technique is critical to looking like you have Bratz’s lips. To try it for yourself, begin by picking your method of outlining your lips. Some users use eyeliners, lip liners, and sometimes eyeshadows. Once you’re ready to start outlining, you’ll want to focus on your lips’ cupid bow and the corners of your mouth because they play a vital role in this method (via Glamour).

Beauty influencer Hayley Bui has shared a tutorial on TikTok where she demonstrates how to outline your lips using just eyeshadows to achieve a particular look. She begins by using a flat-tip makeup brush and black eyeshadow to create a small line in the middle of each corner of her lips, similar to how one would create winged eyeliner on their eyes. She then proceeds to outline her lips, overlining them just slightly beyond the lip’s edge, and connecting it to the lines in the corners. It’s important to emphasize the curves, especially the Cupid’s bow when outlining the lips.

Another beauty influencer, Ava Solorio, shows in a TikTok video how she outlines first with a lip liner that matches her natural lip color. She follows it using a dark brown eyeshadow for the thicker outline and shading. Her technique, however, creates a more emphasized wing by outlining past the corners of her lips, creating a more dramatic pointed corner, or wing, on each side. This style creates a curve similar to that of a smile. When outlining, it’s crucial to create a shaded look to give it dimension separate from how you will be filling the rest of your lips in.

Fill in with color

Once you’ve created your outline, overlined or not, it’s time to decide how to fill your lips in. Now that you’ve got a bold edge and shading on your lips, applying the rest of the color should be easy. In beauty influencer Hayley Bui’s TikTok video tutorial, she continues to use eyeshadow for the color fill-in. She picks something different than the color she used for the outline. For example, she outlined her lips in black and filled in the rest with a maroon color. This allows the outline and its shading to stand out, contrasting the colors.

When doing this step, you can fill in with eyeshadow, softer lip liners, or lipstick. It’s still important, however, that you blend it in with the shading you worked on during the outline process. Additionally, it will work better if the outline and the lipstick are two different colors so that there is a distinct color-blocking effect. Finally, for that famous Bratz shine, top it all off with a lip gloss (via Huda Beauty).
