Bold lips are one of the the hottest makeup trends for spring 2011. Paired with light makeup using just a black eyeliner, mascara and a neutral blush it creates a fresh and matte look. For a strong touch, use a pastel eyeshadow such as blue, green or white (as seen in Christian Dior) and remember to keep your eyebrows tidy.
As seen in Marni and Gucci, an orange lipstick is a number one bold lip colour for spring. At Gucci, Pat McGrath presented his vision of orange-red lips with a luminous, bronzed skin background. Unfortunately, this is a quite demanding trend not everyone can sport.
Fuchsia lipstick (otherwise known as ‘power pink’) is bolder, younger and more girlie than the classic red. Having ruled the runways for Spring 2011 including Diane von Furstenberg and Fendi, royal fuchsia is the ultimate way to create a statement-making pout. A bold fuchsia look best with a dark skin.
From matte to glossy finishes, bright coral lips are the alternative to daring orange and fuchsia. At Marni, Tom Pecheux balanced out the geometric eye makeup spotted on models with electric coral pouts. Search for a shade that is more beige than orange.
