Spring is almost in full bloom! When you do your annual Spring cleaning, why not include your makeup and beauty products as well? Now is the perfect time to do a full revamp of your makeup bag. After a long and dreary winter, the new season ushers in some bright and bold colours. Here are our top 5 favourite lip shades for Spring 2017, with inspiration taken from this season’s fashion shows and our favourite celebrities.
Matte lipsticks seem to be all the rage this season. This crimson red, “Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour” from MAC has an instant skin-brightening effect. Pair it with fresh, dewy skin and natural eye makeup.
Coral and electric orange lip colours have made a comeback in recent years, reminiscent of the groovy 70s. We love the Semi Matte Lipstick from NARS in the shade “Breaking Free”. This shade pairs perfectly with bronzed skin and dramatic lashes.
If you are after a more subtle, natural shade, but don’t want to go completely nude…Stila’s Color Balm Lipstick in the shade “Jessie” would be the perfect choice. It’s not quite nude and not quite pink; more so a chestnut rose.
Floral hues are a must for Spring. For a fun pop of pink, we recommend NARS’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Damned”. One swipe will make you feel instantly sexier.
Transitioning from winter to spring this year means embracing sparkle. While glittery, metallic lips might not be appropriate for every day wear, it can be the perfect choice for an evening out if you want a bold and dramatic look. Lancome’s Le Metallique Lip Lacquers come in a wide range of beautiful shades.
