Once again I’m happy to say that this Summer it’s all about the pout!
We have seen lots of beautiful, strong lips at fashion weeks. There has been a mixture of shades from a pop of pink, a summery orangey-red and sexy plum wine shades.
If you are feeling brave and want a makeup look that is bang on trend then get yourself down to your favourite make up counter or have a dig into your make-up bag for that lipstick that you haven’t dared to wear yet and try teaming it up with minimal eye make up.
Just one tip, to keep your look on trend, keep your lips matte. If you are used to a glossy lip then matte can feel quite different but it looks amazing!
I loved Leah’s lips on The Voice on Friday nights show (7th June), she went for a fresh orange-red shade. Try MAC lipstick Morange to recreate a similar look or Givenchy Le Rouge shade Croisiere in coral. Also Amanda on Saturday nights Britain’s Got Talent was sporting a strong lip, she had opted for a deep classic red.
Looking at the catwalk for inspiration, Burberry went for the deep plum wine shade whilst Nina Ricci went for one of my favourites to wear with a Matte red, try MAC matte lipstick ruby woo. Holly Fulton was showcasing an original eye catching lip which I am definitely going to be trying which combined two bright shades, a bright coral and a bright pink, love it!
If you have thin lips it doesn’t mean you can’t wear a bold lip, try another technique seen on the catwalk and accentuate the outer shape of your lips with a pencil, try a slightly darker shade of pencil just on the outer edge of your lip line.
I am looking forward to meeting some more brides this Summer that are getting married in the Harrogate or Darlington area, wanting something a bit different and trying out one of these looks. I have had a few vintage weddings where the bride has gone for a matte red and it looks stunning! Looking forward to seeing the power pouts about!
