Bold lips for spring14:01
I must admit that I'm getting into the spring mood. The snow has almost completely went away, days are getting longer and I can almost see spring flowers popping out. I know, probably a bit too soon, but still. Spring clothes are fully stocked in nearby stores and with that comes also spring makeup trends. I love searching new makeup trends and trying to adapt them to my style. This is exactly what I tried to do today.
I was inspired by Kendall Jenner's look at Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015 show. Apparently dark plum and red lips are not going anywhere. Pretty unusual, I think. Strong lips are always fall statement, but hey, good for us, who like those kind of trends. The look was paired with a very light eyes and elongated thin winged liner. It seems like there is very little contouring and highlighting going on, paired with flushed red cheeks.
I applied light yellow white all over the lid and in the inner corner of the eye. Then I added a mix of taupe and light brown in the crease.
I also added the same mix of taupe and light brown around the lower lash line. I decided to use gel liner, even though it was obvious that in the show they had used powders. I made a very thin line, which got thicker in the end and a bit elongated.
Then I just curled my lashes and applied mascara. I am not sure if they used mascara in the show, based on the photos of Kendall Jenner, but I can't go without it.
The rest of the face I applied foundation, concealer and a bit of powder. I used peach red blush on the cheeks a bit high up pulled back to the temples. I also did highlight, because you know me, I love highlighter. I used the same yellow white eye shadow on tops of my cheeks. I also contoured very little around the outer edges of the face.
As far as the lips go, I chose a bit lighter version of plum shade, then Kendall wore and applied it all over the lips with fingers only. Apparently the new spring trend of bold lips requires smudged edges around the lips, so that the lipstick looks like a bold stain on the lips.
I hope you like my interpretation of this spring trend and let me know if you wear or would wear bold lipstick in the spring?
