The Lip Trends You Have to Try

This season it’s all about the lips. But the summer’s high-impact shades have been softened for autumn. From stained, youthful pouts, to bold, berry hues, this season let your lips do the talking.

The Fruity Lip

If you cast your mind back to AW15’s Fashion Week catwalks you’ll recall a stream of buoyant red lipstick. At Roksanda Ilincic, skin was kept bare with a dusting of blush and cherry tinged lip colour worn ultra-matte. Meanwhile ACNE Studios pronounced tomato-toned lips the must-wear shade. Hair was scraped back to grant lips maximum attention.


Layered Lip Colour

To achieve deep, dark red stamped lips you’ll need to layer it on. At Marchesa, robust wine coloured lips were heavily glossed to match wet-look eyes. To carry off such deep-shades you’ll need to prime lips first and rim with a firm lip line. Carolina Herrera and Dolce & Gabbana also layered their trademark cardinal tones, but lips were kept matte and paired with feline eyes.


Popsicle Pouts

For the likes of Chloé and Topshop Unique, autumn’s beauty uniform is fresh and pretty. Flushed cheeks, naked eyes and handsome brows formed the canvas for raspberry stained pouts. The effect: just-bitten lips with a lick of popsicle-hued gloss. Natural radiance at its finest.
