You might remember the brown lippie look in a headspin of Never Been Kissed-era Drew Barrymore or Friends BFFs Rachel and Monica. Well, thanks to Acne Studios SS17, your fave 90s beauty look is back with a bang. So here's how it's being used on the runways and championed by our very own ASOS Insider Lesley.

Models hit the Acne Studios 2017 catwalk with a beauty look that was all multi-tonal brown: thick and dark brushed-up brows, subtly warm eyeshadow and a plummy shade of matte lipstick. The result? A cool throwback look that is both sultry and grown-up.

A big-time advocate of matte lippie, ASOS Lesley reps the trend with a slick of NYX Professional Makeup's latest lipstick drop, Lip Lingerie (in shade Cabaret Show). She balances out the darkness with shimmer highlighter across the cheekbones and lids, adding depth with subtle contouring.
