The hottest lip trends for winter and how to wear them
Good news lipstick lovers – we’ve entered a season where almost anything goes. Whether you prefer shades that are fluorescent, extra-dark, barely-there or glossy, there’s a trend to suit you. With that in mind, here’s a guide to Impact Lips for Fall and Winter 2016.
Deep and dark
Cabernet purple, blood red-crimson and even borderline black lips are having a moment. It takes a certain amount of daring, but if you want to make a statement with your smile, there’s nothing like this bold approach.
Creamy coffees and taupe-y toffees
On the opposite end of the spectrum, neutrals are also in right now. The upside: they go with any look. The downside? There’s not one! Depending on your skin tone, try anything from a tawny nude to a cappuccino or terracotta inspired hue for a low maintenance, high polish lip!
Lighter lip liner
The nineties may be all the rage these days (note the above trends on this list, for instance), but there’s one not so subtle difference when it comes to lip hue. Rather than a dated, darker liner with lighter lip, try the reverse. You’ll find that a liner just a shade lighter than your color will keep lipstick in, without overpowering it!
That’s right – your lip color need not shine this season. If you’ve been longing for the days of matte, your time has come. There’s one update: no matter your palette, choose a moisturizing lipstick. This way, you’ll skip the shine but your lips will still feel silky smooth.
And finally, in the aforementioned spirit of anything goes, if gloss is your game – keep playing! Sexy, shiny pouts of all colors are on point this season, whether you’re going for a slick and sophisticated high-gloss red or keeping it simple with a lightly sparkled nearly nude. The only update? Keep the gloss focused on the center of your lips. It will make your pout perkier by seeming to add volume.
