How To Apply The Bold Lips Beauty Trend – SS12
Proving that scarlet isn’t the only bold lip shade to select, the make-up mavens behind the striking look at Jason Wu painted pouts in vermillion and tangerine shades - the perfect hue for adding a shot of polish to carefree patterned maxi dresses and summer’s white jeans.
With its long-wear, highly pigmented formula, dot and blend this tangerine toned colour onto your lips with your finger for wearable wash of colour or stroke it on straight from the bullet for a longer-lasting bold finish.
Breaking the beauty rules by proving it pays to work a statement eye with a bold, bright lip, the make-up maestros bleached out groomed brows and gave eye sockets a winged cat eye finish. Siren style lips were painted with lipstick in two crimson colours, with the darkest focussed on the middle of the mouth to fake fuller lips.
From flaking to drying out and colour bleeding, when it comes to coating lips with statement shades, every heavy-handed mistake and flaw can end up magnified. Cue a beauty bag staple, the stay-the-day lip liner.
Super soft and packed with pigment, Chanel’s Rouge Noir lip liner effortlessly glides onto lips to help create a flawless finish. Simply outline lips and apply your favourite lipstick or for a lip stain look, sketch the liner all over lips, blend with the brush and top with lip balm for a berry-bitten finish.
With its creamy, no-budge finish, Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Pur Couture makes nailing the bold lips look foolproof. Saturating lips with an intense, buildable shock of colour, the SPF15 formula is exceptionally hydrating so the colour won’t fade or flake for hours.
Simply circle a lip balm onto lips and blot off with a tissue before gliding the bullet over lips for a flake-free finish. Add an extra coat of colour in the middle of your bottom lip to recreate the appearance of the two-tone trend spotted at the show.
Backstage at Dior, Immaculate flawless finish skin was given a shock of colour with a ruby red lipstick blotted with a tissue to mattify, resulting in a modern, wearable take on the bright lips beauty trend.
With groomed brows brushed into place the only other elements were cheeks lightly defined with sun kissed bronze powder, a dusting of sable eye shadow over lids and nude eyeliner sketched in the waterline to lighten and brighten.
Don’t attempt to trial the trend before whipping your lips into shape first. Ultra nourishing and packed with organic and natural ingredients, Melvita’s Apicosma lip balm boasts a medley of argan oil, shea butter and beeswax designed to repair and restore dry lips.
The perfect partner to the bright lips beauty trend, the balm is smooth but not shiny, hydrating but not greasy, making the perfect base for painting on lipstick in bold, bright shades.
With its classic crimson colour, Saint Honoré is part of the Tonight Is My Night collection – a myriad of rich, vibrant shades with buildable colour. So whether you want a sheer shot of scarlet, or prefer a block colour, bold lip – this ruby red shade is top of our list of lipsticks to trial.
At Anna Sui, far from siren style crimson lips, the beauty team worked on ways to soften the bold lips beauty trend.
Locks were styled in waves and curls and eyes treated to little more than a couple of coats of curl-boosting mascara. Follow suit and focus on keeping the rest of your look hyper feminine with Hollywood waves and barely there foundation used to erase flaws and create a soft-focus finish.
Creamy and conditioning, if you’re weary of trialling the bold lips beauty trend for fear of your lip colour fading or dehydrating your lips, then Clarins’ Rouge Prodige lipstick is a supreme way to ease yourself in.
Packed with plant oils and lip-smoothing ceramides, the rich, glossy colour boasts all of the lip nourishing benefits of a balm with the pigment punch of a lipstick.
After painting on to lips, blot with a tissue and apply a second coat to make the pillar box red colour longer-lasting or for a polished finish, trace lips with a lip liner first.
