How To Achieve The Bitten Lips In 5 Minutes

If you follow beauty trends in Asia recently, you've probably been bombarded with bloggers (and everyone else) talking about the "Bitten Lips". It's nothing new but a revamped makeup look that took over many Asian countries in a storm. And it's all thanks to the beautiful Korean actress Yoon Eun Hye (윤은혜) who sports her now famous "Bitten Lips" look in her on-air drama I Miss You (보고싶다). 

And the craze certainly didn't stop when people found out the brand behind her signature pink lips because the same colored lipstick is now sold out in most Shu Uemura counters. However, it's extremely easy to achieve her sexy lips with a few simple and still widely available products.

Products I used in this tutorial,

  1. a foundation or concealer
  2. a clear lip balm or gloss
  3. and your favorite lipstick  
For this look, you can go with any color you prefer. I ended up using my beloved NYX lipsticks in Louisiana and Fire.

Start with your bare lips.

STEP 1: For girls with naturally pale lips, you can actually skip this step. Otherwise, cover your lips with a foundation or concealer.

STEP 2: Apply your favorite lipstick onto the middle part of your lips. 

STEP 3: Apply a clear lip balm or gloss to the outer part of your lips. Lightly mix the clear lip balm and the lipstick stain. Repeat step 2 if needed.

And there you have it, the sexy and beautiful Bitten Lips. I finished this look in less than 5 minutes, and I've been loving it. It's the new hot trend in Asia, and I'm seeing more and more celebrities joining the bandwagon. I hope you like this quick tutorial, and I'm off to catch up on some k-dramas.

  1. I actually really like the way this looks. Kind of like an Ombre lip! :) and it looks wearable. :)

    1. It's really fun and wearable. A bit different than the regular full on colored lips.

  2. I'm loving this lip trend too, but I hate the part where you have to conceal your lips because i find it so... annoying. Or maybe that's just me. XD
    Eun Hye looks so pretty in her new drama though, i can't help but stare at her lips (when I'm not busy staring at Park Yuchun lol)
    I find this type of lip makeup works well with lip tints too! :D

    1. That part is definitely annoying. It makes my lips really dry but I had to do it because otherwise the lip balm won't be enough to cover my natural lip color.

      And I think most people will be staring at Yuchun most of the time LOL

  3. The outcome is so nice. I personally very into just bitten lips too and i'm wearing it everyday!
    My dear, I like your lips shape, maybe you can use the concealer just covered on the outer part (pigmented area) of lips.

    1. That's a great idea. I'm going to try it with just concealing the outer part of my lips.

  4. I love this look, but I just think retouching will be a bit difficult since you'll need to do all the steps again, haha.

    1. This is probably not retouching friendly since you'll have to carry multiple lip products.

  5. Very well done but its not for me. My drier lips wouldnt do well with foundation on them and I'd rather got with a stain and then balm for my lips! But what you did looks great on your pout!

    1. Actually my lips are quite dry. You can totally see all the cracks on the picture where I applied the foundation. I wish I don't have pigmented lips.

  9. You did a great job with this, Angela! I think this is a very fresh, fun look and would be great for editorial or parties or a photoshoot, but I don't think I would wear this around. But then, I don't even really wear lipstick, so maybe that's just me :P

    1. Thanks Becca. I love to wear this occasionally when I get bored with my usual lipstick look.

  10. This bitten lip looks great! Love the effect and it is getting quite popular. I don't think I'll be trying it anytime soon though as it'll look so awkward on me haha!
