Lipstick Trends Spring Summer 2012

In Spring 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.

  • Summer 2012 bold lip trend was seen in 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
