Pretty Pink Lips
Every year I look out for the current makeup trends. I always feel excited to see what is new, and what will be setting the scene for year ahead. I try and guess what my clients will ask for the most.
But for me, when it comes to makeup on real women, I can’t help but love a more natural feel on the eyes and strong lip colour. Bright, bold or dark. Anyone can easily achieve a strong lip and look fresh faced without needing too many skills when it comes to applying makeup.
I do enjoy the artistic flair that social media has helped flourish in the makeup scene. Strong contour, colourful or powerful eye makeup, glitter, perfection of the brows and highlight placement. Everything looks like it could all be a painting. It really is great. But this is not what everyone wants for every day, it isn’t for most people in general. And I do believe that when wanting to create the most natural, youthful, freshed faced look, the key is to go minimal and focus on the lips.
Pinks are one of the on trend colours this year. Why don’t you try it out? Everyone suits a shade of pink. Have a play around with different shades and work out what shade suits you best. When choosing a bright pink on myself, I prefer more of a blue toned one.
