With 38.8 million views on #cherrycolalips (and counting) on TikTok, the beauty trend is only getting more popular as we head into autumn. 

Inspired by Coca-Cola’s indulgent fizz, the blended lipstick shade is perfect for the shorter days and long nights (cue party season) ahead.We teamed up with professional makeup artist Yasmin Salmon to get a breakdown how to create the ultimate cherry cola lip, and the products that you can shop right now to get the look.

“The Cherry Cola lip trend draws its inspiration from the iconic soft drink, resulting in a captivating and alluring look. This trend begins by using a deep burgundy or brown lip liner to skillfully create a bold, contoured outline that beautifully enhances the shape of the lips,” explains Yasmin, “The magic happens as the outline is softly blended and shaded, creating a mesmerising balayage effect that seamlessly transitions into the rest of the lips.”

Yasmin reveals, “To achieve the ultimate juicy lip, a luscious red cherry-coloured gloss is delicately applied over the top. This glossy finish adds a delightful touch of shine and intensifies the captivating allure, leaving you with a truly gorgeous pout that’s impossible to resist.”

“Lisa Eldrige does some of my favourite lips products including her lip liners. I love how easy they are to apply - and blend so seamlessly into the lips. Especially as this look includes a lot of blending and shading to create a plumped lips effect. I used the shade 'Decade' for this look.”

The Lip Gloss:

“Finding the perfect red gloss can at times be tricky. As not everyone suits the same shade of red. The quickest way of finding out what red tone suits you most is by checking what colour your veins are. If you have purple or blue veins you are cool-toned. So usually warm orange or coral red undertone shades suit you most. If you have green veins you are more warm-toned. Which means cool purple or blue-tone reds look best on you. But at the end of the day it is very much up to preference and it’s whatever makes you feel most confident. For this look I used the shade Rouge Remix, 402.”
