5 Must-Have lip shades
Lipstick shades (and all cosmetic colours) are fickle by nature. They change faster than you can say cheese, branding your new buy as ye olde thing of the season past… The top 5 trends of this season are actually “wearable” enough – you may have them, or create them by layering or just run out to buy that much coveted shade as it may be!
Cheers to Champagne
Soft, soft lips – almost nude in shade but oh-so-glossy! A day look would be a soft face with just a tad kohl and blush while champagne lips for the night may be paired with smokey metallic eyes and a heavy bronzer.
That shade of Barbie pink never did leave my closet, and am glad it’s back – can be paired with a nude face for the day and some dramatically lined eyes for the night – you can choose to use the lipstick shade on your cheeks too.
Not pink, not orange and not red – corals are these super shades of lipsticks that are beautifully attuned to the rest of your make-up and attire and often take on hues from there. Pair coral lips with a nude face with just some bronzing for the day and jewel-lined eyes for the night.
I love Chocolate
Oh yes, browns are back – not the deep dark shades of the 90s, but more glossy and soft – think of it as glossy chocolate shining on your lips. Pair with blushy cheeks for the day and kohl-ed eyes for the night.
Oh yes Orange
Orange, said we, not coral – deep, dark orange that looks oh-so-sexy with a nude face and lined eyes for the day and those smokey lids and deep blush for the night.
