Lipstick trends for this summer are bright and bold, especially for evening, and nude for day or night.
Trying the new lipstick trends requires a little more work for older lips. Start with a little concealer around and on your lips. Use a small amount of powder through a tissue to set the concealer to your lips. This helps the true color of your lipstick to stand out and stay true. Apply your lip liner around the outer edge of your lips and then fill them in with the pencil. Applying your lip liner this way will make it act as a base, so when your lipstick wears off, you don’t have a dark outline remaining.
The trick is to get the right shade and apply it correctly. The best all-around red is Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Rouge Pur Couture – Le Rouge. Le Rouge is a true red. When lined with Chanel #95 Scarlet Precision Lip Definer, it soars as the hottest of the lipstick trends.
Bright pink is a must have in your lipstick wardrobe, even if your not a girly girl. The color gives your face an instant lift but it does work best with a tan or on women of color. Leading the list of best pinks is Chanel #138 Fougueuse Luminous Intense Lip Colour. Paired with Chanel #26 Pretty Pink Precision Lip Definer, #138 becomes a truly versatile rich pink.
Coral lips scream summer, and NARS Casablanca Lipstick is the ideal coral, not too orange or pink. The vitamin E rich formula of these lipsticks imparts smooth and conditioning finish. Make Up For Ever 18C Coral Waterproof Lipliner Pencil is a good mate for Casablanca. Makeup Forever has created a creamy and easy to apply lip liner that does not smudge or feather.
Nude lips are making a comeback this summer. Bobbi Brown reigns supreme in giving us the best nude lips that also pop. Bobbi Brown Beige Lip Color is well suited for light to medium skin tones when lined with Bobbi Brown Beige Lip Pencil. It is one of the summer’s lipstick trends that was made for an understated look best paired with a bold eye.
Whether you go bright or nude, you must prime and line to create lips that pop for Summer 2016.
