The lips make or break your makeup – highlighting them guarantees a wow effect or underlines a subtle look. With these lipstick trends, we’re heralding the spring time.
With immediate effect, there’s some more than the traditional lipstick: semi-liquids come as a lip tint. Thus, the bold and the brave can apply the colour-blocking trend on their lips as well. It’s as easy as it seems: Apply a lighter colour on the top of your lips and one shade darker on the lower part – healthy, fresh, sensual! The puristic lip balm-look stands for perfect beauty! Soft orange meets pink and blossoms in vibrant red, matching with your nails. Cool and extreme shades become more and more popular – blue is the trend colour this year. And those who want to go even further apply rhinestones on the lips.
As of now, there’s some more than the traditional lipstick: semi-liquids come as a lip tint. A lip care underneath is a must to keep the liquid smooth and soft. Within only a few minutes, the finish has either a soft shine or is matt. The lips get extra care and don’t dry out. The small applicator allows for the accurate application, and to accentuate the Cupid’s bow in particular.
Combining two different colours does not only work for clothes, but also for lipstick. Apply one shade in the centre and another one on the outer edge. Compress your lips slightly to blend the two colours. If you want to push the colour blocking-effect even further, you may apply a lighter shade on your upper lip, the darker shade on your lower lip.
Nude is a classic that keeps on returning year after year. The lipsticks come in soft brown shades to provide the makeup with a subtle look. The nuance you choose should have a brown base colour and match your natural lip colour – to achieve a more natural look that fits any occasion.
Cool & Extreme Shades
It’s no longer about red and orange only. Cool and extreme shades become more and more popular – such as blue, this year’s trend colour. It’s a statement indeed, and it’s extreme but if it the outfit is right, subtle options become an instant no-no. Pay just attention to whether you choose a light or a dark shade – your natural skin tone defines how cool the colour should be.
