Fall 2012 Makeup Trend: Deep Lips
Since Fall is almost upon us, I’ve been scoping around a lot to see what makeup artists are going for with their makeup looks.
We’ve all seen the bright red lip, which was really huge last winter. Spring brought us bright pink and coral lips. I’m really excited about the idea of a deep red lips. I think it’s pretty wearable for everyone and you can play around with the color a little bit, so if you’re a little scared to go to deep you could opt for a color with more brown undertones so it’s a bit more natural and subdued. Or if you could opt for a color with more purple in it to get more of a plum lip.
I thought I’d go through and pick out a few colors that I thought would work for different skintones and show you a drugstore and high-end version of each.
For fair skin I like to go with a more pink/redish undertone…more like a wine color.
Loreal Lipstick in Classic Wine
NARS Lipstick in Scarlet Empress
For medium skintones, I still like the idea of wine colored lips, but with a bit more brown…think mulberry.
Revlon ColorStay Lipstick in Fabulous Fig
Sephora Color Lip Last in 23 Elegant in Brown
Since people with olive skintones tend to have yellow or greenish undertones, I like the idea of using purples on their lips. I think it’ll play up their skin very nicely and really make their lips pop.
Maybelline Super Stay 24 HR Color in Unlimited Raisin
NARS Lipstick in Vendanges
Deep plums and browns look BEAUTIFUL on darker skintones. Like I mentioned above, if you’re a bit scare of color you could opt for a plum with brown undertones to help subdue it a bit…but I say go for it :]
NYX Round Lipstick in Medusa
Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Color in Cocoa
As always, these are just some of my recommendation on what I think would work for different skintones. Feel free to use whatever color you’d like. Remember, makeup is supposed to be fun, so get out there and experiment!
