Move Over Contouring, Au Naturelle Is Back!
It’s time to ditch the harsh contouring and full-on, baffling makeup looks - hooray! Natural is back on trend!
Think baby soft, dewy skin; full, natural brows; plump, juicy lips and some rich, vibrant colours thrown in for good measure.
Here’s a list of the top lip trends this Autumn & Winter ’18 with a few tips and tricks to up your makeup game this season.
‘Bitten’, plump and juicy lips are still on trend this Autumn - with an added stain of colour to make your pout look uber inviting!
Use a lip stain or gently pat your lipstick colour in the centre of your lips and blend gently to the edges to create a natural looking flushed lip (tip: pinks & reds work best for this look).
Be sure to use a scrub beforehand to make sure any dryness has vanished!
Why not try our Volcanic Ash & Charcoal Lip Scrub to make sure your lips look as smooth as silk, and our Volumising 24K Gold Collagen Lip Mask to nourish dry, parched lips.
Matte is OUT - glossy, fresh lips are back on trend this Autumn!
Use a natural shade of lipstick and top with a clear gloss or lip balm to create a fresh twist on a classic lip look.
Try our Ultimate Moisturising Lip Balm on top of your favourite nude lipstick shade to create a soft, glossy finish or amp it up with a clear gloss of your choice!
Classic Red & Power Ombré
The classic red lip is still on top of the trend list this winter.
Use your favourite rouge lipstick to re-create this timeless look or take it to the next level by adding a deep burgundy, brown or purple lip liner around the edges of your lips and blend to create a bold Ombré effect.
Don’t forget - your pout will look its best if it is plump and juicy!
Use the Plump It! Volumising Lip Plumper before applying your red lipstick - it acts not only as a primer, but its' plumping properties will keep your lips looking full and healthy.
Vivid & Rich Winter Shades
Colour blocking is back!
Think Red, Dusky Pink, Purple and Burgundy lip colours to mimic the Winter feels or your favourite Fall outfit. Apply your fave, most vibrant lipstick without liner, and always use a primer to ensure your lipstick stays put all night long!
Our Plump It! Volumising Lip Plumper is perfect underneath any lipstick to keep your lip colour vibrant - its' priming properties are perfect for this technique.
So, there it is - your Autumn/Winter lip trend line up!
