Luscious Lips for Autumn / Winter 2016
From luminous neons to full-on gloss, romantic dark hues and timeless, arresting red lips, the catwalks of Fashion Week were awash with new and inspired looks hot for Autumn/Winter 2016. We all want to channel your inner Kylie or Karlie. This is how to achieve the hottest looks with a little help from Lipstick Queen.
The New Romantic
A fall favourite, the dark lip made its way across many runways. Including Dior, Marni, Rodarte and Rihanna for Puma. Black, plum and wine hues were the look of the day. It gives sass and character to the face. Get the look with Lipstick Queen’s Bete Noir collection (AED 240). With different levels of pigment, this intense Blackberry colour collection has a rich and creamy formula. Further more it keep lips comfortable, soft and so on-trend.
A nod to the 1980’s, electric fluorescent shades made their way across the catwalks at Jeremy Scott, MSGM and Marc Jacobs. Models therefore rocked neon colors on their lips. Most noteworthy it gives an ultra fresh look that was both strong and feminine. Create your own look with Lipstick Queen’s Cupid’s Bow in Eros, a hotter than hot pink (AED 125). This pencil is packed with pigment and keeps lips hydrated with a soft, velvet like finish in one stroke.
As seen at Paco Rabanne and Fendi, pastel lips from turquoise to tangerine hues were big news. This striking pop of colour works best when the rest of your make up is kept au natural. Get your own pop of colour with Lipstick Queen’s Jungle Queen (AED 135), most of all a creamy coral shade that works on all complexions.
The glossy lip was a popular choice spotted at Dior, Max Mara and Peter Pilotto. To recreate this look, lips need to be ultra wet and lacquered; the glossier the better. Lipstick Queen’s Big Bang (AED 135) seals the deal perfectly with a non-sticky formula giving unbelievable shine and shimmer as well as making lips appear plumper and fuller. It simultaneously keep your lips moisturize as that it one essential factor I prefer when it comes to lipgloss or lip balms, remember my review of Tinted LIP BALM (HERE).
A true red lip never goes out of style and Cushnie et Ochs, Joseph and Pringle were just a few designers who sent their models down the runway with an arresting, red lip inspired by the vintage glamour and decadence of 1920’s. Hence for a modern take on a classic, pair your red lip with minimal other makeup. Eventually Lipstick Queen’s Velvet Rope in Brat Pack (AED 250) is a perfect true red to achieve the look.
