Have you tried the 90’s throwback lip look yet? If not, then it’s high time you did. Follow our tips to nail your lip situation this season…
- Try maroon, vampy violet and blood red for a shift into the night – the darker and richer, the better. This look is all about opaque stained colours on the lips, so keeps the eyes neutral and avoid a heavy or smokey eye to keep balance.
- If the dark tones don’t work for you, never fear – the warm matte browns long associated with the supermodel era are back too. Look for shades that work well with your skin tone and don’t be afraid to ask staff at our beauty counters for some guidance. That’s what they’re there for!
- Lip gloss makes a comeback this season and is the perfect alternative for those of you not comfortable wearing a matte lipstick. Add extra colour to your lips by lining and filling in the lip with a lip pencil before applying your gloss.
- If it’s full lips you’re after, don’t be tempted to draw too far outside of your natural lip line – no one want’s to look like a clown. Instead apply your lip pencil to the outer line of your lips, slightly extending around the middle of the lips.
