A Roundup of Beautiful Brown Lipstick Looks

Miryam Diaz

Earlier this year, Kylie Jenner brought the ’90s lipstick trend back in full force with her iconic mauve lips. This past fall, the ’90s trend has stuck around, but more and more people are gravitating towards the bolder shade of brown. From rich chocolate to cool-toned lighter shades, brown lipstick is the ‘IT’ color of them moment and it’s clear to see why. It’s different and daring, yet looks beautiful on every skin tone. We’re officially obsessed. Keep scrolling for some of our favorite brown lipstick looks and get inspired!

Kaelynn Harris

Kaelynn Harris pairs her chocolate brown lips with perfectly groomed brows and flawless curls. It’s a very Old Hollywood look, but rather than go the typical red lip route, she switched it up with something unexpected.

Makeup by Evon

@MakeupByEvon is simply gorgeous, so she can truly never do wrong, but this is one of her most beautiful looks ever. She paired her brown lipstick with fresh skin, sharp black liner and lots of lashes. So glamorous, in an effortless kind of way.

Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid tends to stick to nude lipsticks, so this bold brown was definitely out of her comfort zone…and she pulled it off beautifully! Pairing it with a simple flick of a cat eye, this look is daring, yet so easy to recreate at home.


Katy of @lustrelux is rocking the new Kylie Jenner Lip Kit in True Brown K. You’ve probably heard that these lippies sold out in ten seconds, but don’t worry: they should be restocked before Christmas. If you want to try the chocolatey shade ASAP, check out the next photo for a great dupe!

Here’s another photo of @lustrelux sporting chocolate brown lips…but this lippie isn’t from Kylie Jenner! It’s actually ColourPop’s Limbo, a pretty similar dupe, and it costs a fraction of the price at $6!

Bailey Sarian

Bailey Sarian used the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette on her lids. This palette is the ideal complement to brown lips. It’s full of matte brown and neutral shades that really encompass that grungey, ‘90s vibe. She has MAC’s Antique Velvet on her lips.

Kathleen Lights

The lipstick Kathleen Lights is wearing here isn’t actually brown…it’s her collaboration with Ofra Cosmetics, Miami Fever, which is more of a burnt orange shade. She applied it on top of MAC’s Chestnut lip liner to customize this rich brown hue.

Makeup by Shayla

@MakeupShayla looks fierce in Lip Kit by Kylie’s True Brown K. This shade is flattering on so many different skin tones – can’t wait until it comes back in stock (though odds are it will sell out in less than a minute again)!

Makeup by Denise

All shades of brown are hot right now, ranging from light to dark. @MakeupByDenise is wearing Lime Crime’s Shroom mixed with Cashmere for this light brown lip. It’s a unique twist on the classic nude lip.

Heidi Hamoud

If you’re not totally comfortable with a brown lip, start with a reddish-brown one, like Heidi Hamoud’s. It’s super wearable and flattering on most skin tones, plus it’s perfect for fall!


@KimJLuv paired her brown glossy lips (she used Anastasia’s Fudge Lip Gloss) with a black smoky eye for a stunning evening look. This is great for a party or even New Year’s Eve. So glam.

Alva Jay

Alva Jay used Gerard Cosmetics’ Iced Mocha Liquid Lipstick for this look. This cool-toned light brown is such a unique color. There’s truly nothing like it. She paired it with blue sparkly eyes for an unforgettable evening look.

Rose and Ben

Rose of @RoseandBen is always flawless. From her eyes to her skin to her lips, her makeup’s always on point. For this look, she used Urban Decay’s 1993 lipstick. This ’90s-inspired shade is so trendy and cool, plus the formula of UD’s Revolution lipsticks is the best.

Jelena Peric

Obsessed with this glam take on the brown lipstick trend by Jelena Peric. She used Ofra’s Liquid Lipstick in Honolulu, which is a brown with a burgundy undertone. Ofra’s liquid lipsticks are supposedly one of the best out there – definitely worth a shot!

Samantha Ravndahl

Samantha Ravndahl is wearing CoverGirl’s Colorlicious Lipstick in Coffee Crave here. What an incredible, mid-tone shade of brown! You can find it at the drugstore for under six bucks.

Leyla Rose

Leyla Rose knows how to do glamour right. Pairing brown lips with a satiny champagne eye is such a pretty idea. She used Urban Decay’s Naked Palette on her lids, and MAC’s Chestnut Lip Pencil all over her lips.
