Maybe it's the bright colors shown on the spring runways, or maybe it’s due to the creatively colored lips worn by Rihanna (deep metallic green) and Joan Smalls (dark purple). Whatever the reason, lip colors ranging from hot oranges to pinks, blues, purples greens and even gray are leaping off the cosmetic counters and finding homes in makeup bags (and lips) across the country.
One of the biggest spring beauty trends is lipstick in non-traditional colors. Electric Orange and Radiant Orchid (bright fuchsia) lipstick was spotted on Rag & Bone, Marchesa DKNY, and Nicole Miller’s runways.
If you’re not into hot oranges or pinks, how about blue, purple or green lipstick? Maybe the bright colors shown on the runways made out-of-the-ordinary lip colors popular, or maybe it’s due to the creatively colored lips worn by Rihanna (deep metallic green) and Joan Smalls (dark purple). Whatever the reason, lip colors ranging from pale blue to gray to teal and beyond are leaping off the cosmetic counters and finding homes in makeup bags (and lips) across the country.
If you’re thinking about trying this trend, remember the emphasis is on the lips, so keep eye makeup and cheek color soft, like the “no makeup” makeup look.
