Winter 2012 Lipstick Trends

Feb 07, 2012

Winter 2012 is all about going to extremes. And for lipstick trends that means go bold or go nude! While some of the hottest runway models and starlets, like Emma Stone, are smearing on gobs of reds inspired by candy, chocolate and berries, others are toning down their color to a sheer hint of almost nothing at all.

How to wear it

If you go bold with color, match it with strong brows by brushing up your eyebrows, applying a lash-darkening mascara, and keeping the rest of your look soft and neutral. Eyelids, liner and cheeks get a simple treatment or you could look more like a clown than glamour girl. On skin, smooth a Lightly tinted moisturizer or pressed powder over moisturizer.

If you go nude on your lips, keep the rest of your makeup natural looking or your lips will seem washed out. Look for soft, neutral eye shadows in light pinks, coral, beige, mocha or peach to match your skin tone and steer clear of bolder colors like blue, purple and green. On your skin, dust a light bronzer or use a moisturizer with a hint of foundation - just enough for a healthy glow -- not enough to look like you’ve been baking in the sun for a week. Finish the look with a light dusting of pink-tinted blush on your cheeks for a healthy glow.

Top any lip color off with a protective coating of SPF protection to seal in color and keep lips soft and protected.

Do You Wear Red Lipstick?

  • 24/7 baby!
  • Only on special occasions.
  • I'd like to, but don't think I can pull it off.
  • No, it's too tacky.
