When we talk about the makeup trends of the early '00s, we immediately think of painted eyebrows, thick foundation, and lip concealer. Unexpectedly, it is the latter trend that is at the peak of popularity again.

In particular, model Sofia Richie Grainge has joined the rethinking of lip concealer, Bustle reports. The influencer recorded a video on TikTok that has garnered over 3 million views. In her tutorial, Richie revealed one secret: do not smear the product but apply it to the middle of the lips, blending it for an ombre effect.

The history of the trend

According to Shirranda Edwards, makeup artist at KIKO Milano US, in the '00s, makeup could not be completed without concealer as a lipstick. The modern approach, however, is to create the illusion of extra volume with just a drop of product in the center of the lips, Edwards says.

"The appeal is that you can create a trendy look with something you already have in your makeup bag," she says. You can use any concealer: cream or matte. "Regardless of the finish, this technique will provide a beautiful ombre effect," the makeup artist adds.
