The "Snogging" Trend Intentionally Makes It Look Like You Just Made Out with Somebody

The appeal of last night's makeup has never been lost on us. Like Kristen Stewart, we welcome the smoky remains of the previous evening's kohl eyeliner. However, the latest lived-in makeup look is a liiittle more unorthodox. This, because it literally mimics the aftermath of a kiss. And not a seemly smack on the lips, eitherโ€”we're talking a full-on, Rose-and-Jack-in-a-fogged-up-luxury-automobile rendezvous.

The "snogging" trend is the brainchild of cerebral makeup artist Val Garland, who created the look for Preen's Fall 2017 show in collaboration with MAC. Similar to the blurred lip look, it's a matter of deliberately coloring outside the lines for an unapologetic, I-just-had-someone-else's-tongue-down-my-throat effect.

To create the look, Garland painted on MAC's highly-pigmented Lip Mix creams, then used a large makeup brush to buff it outside the bounds of the lip line. For sheen, she added lip gloss within the lip line.

Inspired by club girls that are #sorrynotsorry for last night's adventures, it's not for the faint of heart. But if you love a statement, it will definitely have onlookers using their imagination.

Not a lip girl? Don't worryโ€”there's another, even more scandalous way to wear last night's kiss on your face. The "glitter snog" kicks thing up a notch with a wet nose and glistening chin situation, which is either really sexy or really not depending on how you look at it.
