TikTokers are always on the lookout for the next big beauty trend, and the latest one is inspired by one of the sweetest things. The honey lips trend, coined by beauty creator Eva Larosa, is all about creating a lip look inspired by honey's golden color without any of its stickiness. Honey is the latest beauty trend on social media, with makeup lovers obsessed with the "honey lips" look. This lip color and finish are inspired by the characteristics of honey, with a glossy, shimmering finish that is rich and luscious.

The idea behind the honey lips trend is not to apply honey directly to the lips, even though that would be a good idea given that honey has many benefits for our skin. Instead, the goal is to recreate the shine and luster of honey on the lips using makeup products. This trend has gone viral on social media, with the hashtag #honeylips racking up over 3.2 million views on TikTok in just a few weeks.

You will need a lip scrub, a gold eyeshadow, and a clear gloss to get the honey lips look. First, exfoliate your lips with a lip scrub to remove dead skin and create a smooth surface. Next, apply a thin layer of gold eyeshadow to the cupid's bow and center of your lower lip. This will add a touch of shimmer and make your lips look fuller. Finally, line your lips with a lip pencil in the same shade as your lips or slightly darker. This will help to define your lips and make them look more polished. Top with a clear gloss to seal in the moisture and give your lips a glossy finish. There's no need to buy expensive natural products or apply wet honey to your face; it's really that easy.

TikTok has been gripped by latte makeup, syrup nails, glazed donut skin, cinnamon cookie butter hair, and even Haley Bieber's strawberry makeup. Executive Director of Trends at Mac, Cat Quinn, revealed that food-related trends will be around for a while. She said, "We have a trend team dedicated to tracking early beauty movements, including those related to food, and we see a lot coming up."
