This season’s lipstick shades are not for the faint-hearted. They’re bold and beautiful and they come in- in-your-face shades of pink to orange!
Shades like Addict by Dior, a vibrant blue-pink, or Orchid, Bubble Gum and stretching all the way to Coral by Givenchy. Then, just to keep you interested, there’s the barely-there shades of nude which lend an ethereal soft distraction to that next pout.
But, who can wear these shades? Well, for fun, everyone. But, in reality, and to avoid wasting a purchase, follow this quick and basic guide.
True brunettes, even if they’ve changed their hair colour, can wear vibrant shades beautifully. And bright orange is no exception. Even those shocking white-pink shades, usually worn best by blondes, will sometimes work well. But best to try a sample first.
Light brown or ash blondes will suit and love it even better, if the shades they choose were more muted than the very vibrant ones. Orange may be a challenge for them so they should try a sample first. And better still, they could go a more muted or coral version, which still packs the wow, but not as loudly.
Plus, natural ash blondes and light brunettes can wear soft nudes best. However, when they do, it is wise to play up their eyes a little more than usual.
Redheads will look stunning in the season’s wow shades: from orchid to coral to orange. However, they should steer clear of hot pinks or pinks that are too-blue. And luckily there’s all shades of pinks available, including coral-pink hues that are superb for the redhead. Even the nudes come in peachy shades.
There’s no reason why every woman can’t have fun with the vibrant colour of lips this season! And be sure to wear it like you own it for best results!
