I came across this sentence. Is it grammatical?

This will keep your face looking beautiful?

It struck me as odd, but I am unable to say it is wrong, because "keep + noun + present participle" seems to be a valid construction, e.g. keep it going.

Is there any difference in meaning between that sentence and

This will keep your face beautiful?

  • It's perfectly grammatical. One of the definitions of keep is "to cause to remain in a given place, situation, or condition". So "this product will cause your lips to remain looking natural". – stangdon Mar 19 '18 at 19:54

"It will keep your lips looking natural"

That is completely grammatical and idiomatic English.
