2019 is the year of bright orange and red lips! Celebrities in both Eastern and Western media have been shown rocking this trend. Life is too short to not have fun so make a bold statement and try out a bright orange or red lip!
Keep it Simple!
Your lip is the main focus, so keep the rest of your makeup simple! Add some concealer to cover up any spots or dark circles. Set it with some translucent powder so it lasts all day.
You can complement your bright lip with bright eyeshadow. However, if you want your lips to be the star of the show it is best to keep your eyes basic. Tightline your eyes, to give the effect of a fuller lashline. Add some mascara and you are done!
Balance out the bottom of your face with the top by filling in your eyebrows. You can use a pencil or powder close to your hair colour, and fill in any sparse areas.
Finally, add some blush that is a similar colour to your lips, to get a monochromatic cheek and lip look. You can even dab your lipstick on your cheeks as a cream blush!
Taylor Swift – NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
How can we talk about bold red lips, without Taylor Swift? Although she has recently worn nudes and pink lipsticks, she always goes back to her classic red pout.
Her go-to lip product according to her, is the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl. This highly-pigmented lip pencil is more like a crayon. A non-drying formula, you do not have to worry about dry, cracked lips. Outline your lips comfortably with this easy to hold product.
Suhyun – The Face Shop Flat Velvet Stick
Akdong Musician’s Suhyun is known for her classic bitten red lip. The bitten lip, or the gradient lip, is a long-running Korean Beauty trend. This look is perfect if you prefer a softer, less defined lip.
To get the perfect gradient lip, it is best to mix two complimenting shades. We suggest The Face Shop’s Flat Velvet Stick in Solar Beige and London Red. The Face Shop’s Flat Velvet Stick has a unique flat tip, allowing precise application. Outline your lips with Solar Beige and gently tap London Red in the center of your lips. Blend the colours with your finger for the perfect bitten lip!
Rihanna – Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle
When Rihanna launched the Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle lipsticks, she did not come to play! Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle comes in 24 shades and Tiger Tini is the orange lipstick every girl needs.
The slim shape of the lipstick allows you to define your lips perfectly. The Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle lipstick has a creamy texture and produces intense pigment. This lipstick glides on smoothly and sets with a comfortable, velvet texture.
Seo Eun Soo – Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine
If you are still too shy to try something so bold, a coral-nude lipstick might be a better option! Coral lips are one of the hottest trends in Korean Beauty now, and many celebrities have been loving the look!
Seo Eun Soo is wearing Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine # 14 Corail In Touch. This lipstick gives your lips a pop of colour and intense shine. This hydrating formula glides smoothly onto your lips without feeling heavy.
