The trend has been dubbed the “snogging”, which is the British slang for kissing or making out. The objective here is to look like you’ve just come out of an intense make out session.

This is definitely a trend for the risk takers, if your heart skips a beat at the sight of a perfectly lined and filled lip then you are in for a miserable season.

Legendary make-up artist Val Garland created this head-turning look for Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, which made headlines at London Fashion Week. This is what she had to say about the inspiration behind this racy lip: “It's about kissing and snogging. This girl goes clubbing, she’s confident and she loves kissing,” Garland told Vogue.

Garland created the look by “using M.A.C’s Lip Mix and smudging out the line, using a larger brush and buffing it out, and then applying gloss within the lip line but not outside it.”
