This lipstick trend on TikTok leaves people’s faces covered in lipstick marks from their lovers. Be it just humans or even pets. Here’s why.
How are people doing the lipstick trend?
The lipstick trend has been going viral. This trend is a way for people to show off their lovers by showering their faces with affection. It is also used to soft launch people’s situationships.
This trend typically starts off with a shot of the girl who is seemingly putting on her lipstick. She then swipes the lipstick, ‘accidentally’ messing up her lipstick. A hand grabs the girl’s face, swiping away the mistake. The camera then pans to a person sitting next to her.
This person, typically the girl’s lover, has their face covered in lipstick marks hence the name of the lipstick trend. The video can either end here or in some cases, it ends in a kiss or display of affection.
People doing this lipstick trend have also taken it into a platonic side, doing this trend with their affectionate loved ones. Some people have taken to doing this trend with their pets like dogs while some are doing it with their little siblings.
The single and taken side of the lipstick TikTok trend
Just like everything, even this trend has two sides. There are the single people and then there are the taken people. As we know, couples are doing this trend with lip marks on their face. Using this to show off their loved ones.
Then there is the single side, which is doing this trend bitterly. People start the trend the same way, by putting on their lipsticks. When they ‘accidentally’ swipe their lipstick, they take it further out.
Using their lipstick, they cover their noses and make triangles above their eyebrows, turning themselves into clowns. This is to signify that they have been fooled by relations or the notion of love.
The humor of the comments
As always, there are tons of people commenting on these videos. Aside from the typical comments for engagements and the others putting heart-eyed emojis, there are many interesting ones.
Many are showing their desire to do this trend, with the creator or tagging their loved ones in the videos asking them to do it.
