How To Recreate JT of City Girls’ Viral Lip Combo
Here's how she achieved the look.
JT, one-half of the rap duo City Girls, recently went viral for her beauty look at the Mugler Fall/Winter 2023 show during Paris Fashion Week. Her jet-black hair and double-winged eyeliner immediately captured our attention. However, it was her lip combo that made us do a double-take.
London-based makeup artist Sophio Sinot, whose clients include the likes of Doja Cat and Liza Koshy, was the mastermind behind JT's intricate eye and lip makeup. And now, in a video shared on TikTok and Instagram, the makeup artist has revealed the products she used to nail the look.
Sophio Sinot used five products to achieve the look and started by lining JT's lips with the Huda Beauty Lip Contour 2.0 Automatic Matte Lip Pencil in Rich Brown. She then used a cotton swab to blur the outer corners of the lip. She went on to apply Glisten Cosmetics' Cola (Black) Wet Liner along JT's cupid's bow and the center of her bottom lip using a thin brush.
To make the black lines bolder, she went over those areas with 3INA's The Longwear Lipstick in 900 and softened the edges with another cotton swab. Once her lips were outlined, Sophio reached for two glosses. First, she applied the Wonder Skin Supreme Shine Lip Gloss on the areas without liner. Then, to finish things off, the makeup artist swiped on a layer of Kiko Milano Hydra Gloss in 26. Together, these products created a stunning, dark ombre lip.
While JT debuted the look just last week, it has already sparked tons of buzz online, especially on TikTok. The hashtag #JTLipCombo has racked up nearly one million views on the app, and numerous creators have taken to the app to showcase their recreations.
