From ombre nudes to crimson reds, discover the lipstick trends for summer 2017.
The most modern way to wear a red lip is with a blotted, stain-like finish. It’s a look made for summer nights, and pairs perfectly with a navy smoky eye. To get the look, apply the crimson shade of Velvet Mattes Lipstick in Desire, then tap the edges with your fingertips to create a softer edge.
The ombre lip was everywhere on the SS17 catwalks, and it’s easy to adapt this flattering look for elegant, everyday wear. Line and fill your lips with Colour Elixir Lip Liner in Mauve Moment, then concentrate Colour Elixir Lipstick in Simply Nude in the centre to create your subtle ombré.
Glossy lips are back, and the look wears beautifully with dewy summer skin. To make your high shine lip last, start with a full-pigment lipstick, like Velvet Mattes Lipstick in Blush. Blot your lips, then apply a veil of gloss, like Colour Elixir Lip Gloss in Polished Fuchsia. This vibrant pink is ultra on-trend and looks striking on everyone who wears it.
Peach is the key colour trend of the season on eyes, cheeks and lips – and it’s so easy to wear. Our favourite way is with a hydrating, tinted lip balm that adds a kiss of coral colour. To perfect this glow-enhancing look, apply Colour Elixir Lipstick in Bewitching Coral, which pairs rich pigment with moisture for soft, supple summer lips.
