Ultimate Lip Color Guide This Spring 今春季終極唇彩秘笈 is one of coolest beauty secret weapons you will ever read. As we all know, lip color is a go to tool on the days when you don’t have time or just couldn’t be bothered. A lip color will hide your transgressions! For us, a lip color is our shield in the world of beautistas. Give a girl the right lipstick and she will come home with the gold!
With so many shades being brought out almost every fashion week, it is hard to decipher which beauty trend really works for you. This Spring, we have rounded up the most loved lipstick shade colors that work everyday and night in a girls life. Glamour.com conducted an online survey that found that 58% of women preferred lipstick over glosses, balms, and stains.
35% wear lipstick every single day.
First up is liquid lipsticks, despite their appearance, are usually not glossy. Our Chief-in-glam is a big fan of this new fad. They apply as a liquid because they contain more oils and polymers (and less wax) than a traditional bullet lipstick, then they dry down to an opaque, almost chalky, matte finish. A bold, matte lip with full color impact is now your power accessory.
A little warning about matte liquid lipstick before we get started: You can’t just slap one on and go the way you can with a gooey lip gloss, unless you want your lips to suffer — and also look like you have a lip disease. These suckers are drying. First off, prep carefully. We say use a lip scrub first and a lip conditioner, pre-application of course. Pros say you must Apply in layers, rather than excess. Less is more. Our Chief-in-glam recommends a lip liner with staying power! We really love what colorpop.com has to offer in this field, MAC also rolled out their retro matte liquid lippys- now available in Taiwan as well. Drugstore brands that carry good liquid lipstick are Maybelline, Milani, NYX and Show Off among many others.
Pink is a hot color this Spring, everything from nails to lips and everything in between. Just be careful the shade of Pink you go for, we recommend a softer,paler shade of pink. For example, MAC’s candy yum-yum; skip the lipstick and go for the lip pencil instead. MARCHESA from MAC is also worth noting.
The classic go to for scores of lipstick lovers. Thank goodness we live in a time where wearing lipstick during the day isn’t a faux pas. Revlon is one drugstore brand that carries a good range of Reds and quite affordable.
Yea ok, this may not be a an everyday go to look for the ordinary girl but it will be worth trying for next beauty night out! We have absolutely loved watching beautista’s battling it out on social media for the best metallic lips…and them popping up on Prada’s Spring 2016 runway just sent us into overdrive. A metallic lip is a guaranteed showstopper.
