New Lip Trend Alert: Lip Cuffing in 5 Easy Steps

New Lip Trend Alert: Lip Cuffing in 5 Easy Steps

Posted On

Ever since makeup artist Huda Kattan introduced the “lip cuffing” trend and compared it to a “face-lift for your pout,” this new beauty hack has become our newest lip obsession to get fuller-looking lips without the injections. Naturally, we had to share it with our Glommunity – no gatekeeping here! Similar to lip contouring and the famous ombre lip, this technique levels up your lip combo by enhancing lip definition with subtle shading. The goal? Achieve a luscious pout in just 5 simple steps. Get ready to cuff, blend, link, fill, and gloss to show off those juicy, plump lips.


  1. Cuff It: Outline the inner corners of your lips with a dark shade and fill in the edges to enhance definition - our favorite is the Dibs Beauty No Pressure Lip Definer
  2. Blend It: Rub the lip liner using your fingers or a brush to blend the color into the rest of the lip. 
  3. Link It: Outline the outer corner edges by connecting the dark shade with a lighter shade - Huda’s go-to is the Lip Contour 2.0 Matte Lip Pencil in Warm Brown. 
  4. Fill It: Fill in the space with your choice of matte lipstick - we love the Hourglass Unlocked™ Soft Matte Lipstick
  5. Gloss It: Ready to pucker up? Top it off with cult-fave BeautyBio The Pout high-shine volumizing serum for an extra glossy finish, applying it only in the center of your lips. 

Pro Tip: Gently roll the award-winning GloPRO® Microneedling Lip MicroTip™ before lip cuffing on and around the lips for 60 seconds 3x a week to achieve even plumper lips - no office visit required.

Try it for yourselves - we hope you love this look as much as we do! Tag @beautybio and use the hashtags #lipcuffing #liplinercombo #liphack to join the trend.
