Feel like giving your beauty game a boost in 2016? You could build a brand new, seven step skincare regime. You could start eating more kale to pack yourself full of nutrients. You could even start hitting the gym five times a week to help you “get the glow”. Or, you could do something a lot more fun – invest in a spanking new lipstick shade.
While 2015 was nominally all about “The Brow”, “The Lip” (take note of Miss Kylie Jenner’s virally sensational lip kit) was a strong contender for the year’s second biggest beauty fixation. In fact, 2016 could well be the year we tip over into full blown lip obsession. So, for an easy beauty boost, why not splash out and make a statement with one of our three favourite new lipstick shades for the new year…
The brightness and boldness of a statement red lip, but with a far cooler contemporary edge. Pillar box is excellent for a vintage vixen look, but face-brightening fuchsia is a shade for the future.
A dark berry, wine-stained pout was a prevalent look for AW15, raspberry continues the rich, moody trend but brings a fresh hint of brightness and boldness, perfect for the upcoming SS16 season.
Pale pink lipstick may give you the worst kind of 80s flash back, but with a lighter hand and a softer, dustier shade, a pale petal tint looks ridiculously on trend this year. Wear with a softer eye, matching pastel cheeks and a relaxed, pretty look to bring out the very best in this chic new shade.
Notable mentions also go to cherry and modern, blue-hued ruby red. Which is your favourite new lipstick shade of the season? Do you have any tips, tricks or must buys for our readers? Share them in the comments section below.
