Lipstick Trends Spring Summer 2012

Makeup artists have gone two separate lip ways by adapting either a bold classic red lipstick or a demure nude pout. Both ways are equally trendy and statement-making so read on to find your own way to the perfect pout!

Red lipstick

Nothing speaks retro beauty more than a simple red pout. This season, makeup artists used in most cases a matte lipstick with a highly pigmented formula. Gliding on smoothly and imparting a velvety, high-fashion matte finish in rich modern colour, the red pout goes together with flawless complexion and bare eyes.

Matte-finish lips is a rich and classic option for spring / summer season. The electric red pout looks great with a contrasting pale skin. The intense, full-coverage red lipstick needs a flawless background so don’t forget to use your concealer to hide what should be hidden. Full and defined red lips with a glamorous finish – this is what seduces and rouses.

  • Summer 2012 bold lip trend was seen in Christian Dior where makeup artist mixed three different pigments to come up with an amazing pink-red mouth
  • Anna Sui took her hat off the crimson pout too. Stating that everyone looks good with a red lipstick, she proved it by wearing a crimson lip herself
  • On the contrary, there was Jean Paul Gaultier whose models had their lips covered with a precise coat of a bright crimson pigment with a more fluid appearance
  • The most vampy and decadent interpretation of red was presented in Donna Karan. Burgundy (almost chocolate) pigment was applied onto models’ lips by makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury

Nude lipstick

Discover delicious sheer shades that adorn your lips with a delicate veil of colour. This season, nude lip and a perfect skin blend together to create the laid-back background to the bold spring 2012 makeup trends. Let’s go over different ideas presented in Spring’s fashion shows.

  • In Prorsum, lips were treated to a slick lip shade in a tawny pink
  • A lavender-tinged nude effect was created with sheer purple pigment in Rodarte
  • In Dries van Noten, makeup artists blended the velvety foundations onto lips to eliminate any hint of colour
  • used a high shine sheer yellow lipgloss to take away the pink from Derek Lam model’s lips

Peach lipstick

Makeup artists point at earthy tones on the contrary to the vivid orange. Delicate, neutral lips in pastel colours require a great deal of smoothness and moisturization. Shimmering pearl shades are allowed – they give the impression of fuller and bigger lips.

The peach lip trend is a great complement to the crazy prints, patterns and colours that are showcased by the designers. From matte to glossy finishes, coral lips are the alternative to daring orange and fuchsia. Look for a shade that is more beige than orange.
