Autumn Lip Trends

A new season always brings plenty of new catwalk inspired looks to give your makeup look a fresh, new feel. So what are the hottest looks for lips this autumn?  We gathered some of our favourite trends…

Perfectly imperfect

Fed up with smudged lipstick?  No one will care this autumn, as imperfect lips are very much on trend. To achieve the kind of just-kissed look spotted on the AW17 catwalks, slather on your Lypsyl balm first, then apply your favourite lip colour on top as haphazard as you fancy. The more bleeding edges, the better.

 Rose tinted

Pretty rose blushed lip colours are back. Sheer, soft and delicately applied, this ethereal colourway extends to cheeks and eyes too, so one low cost way of getting the look is to invest in a light, creamy multitasking product, such as Marks and Spencer Autograph Twist Up Cheeks Blusher (£9.50/marksandspencer.com)

Blood red and high shine

The beauty world never seems to tire of rich red lipstick tones, so it’s no surprise they’re back for autumn; blood red and shinier than ever. Designer, Giambattista Valli, showcased cherry lips on the catwalk and you can recreate the same high-drama effect at home with a deep, dark shade and lots and lots of gloss.

All bare

Not one for bright lip shades? That’s not a problem this season.  You can go totally bare-lipped and stay on trend, as while the catwalks showcased plenty of bold colours and gloss, au naturel was a popular look too. Since the key to going ‘naked’ is smooth, soft skin, all you’ll want is your favourite lip-nurturing Lypsyl stick.

Hot fuchsia

Fuchsia lip colour can be a brilliant skin brightener, so be brave and take the plunge! As a general rule, brighter tones of pink work best on fairer skins, while products with a more coral or berry tone compliment olive skins. Anything with a violet tinge looks fabulous on dark skin. The best (and most fun) way to find your favourite fuchsia is to experiment until you find one you love.

Matte brights

Models at Top Shop Unique London Fashion Week AW17 show wore bold, blood orange tones with an almost painted on look. To create a similarly perfectly muted finish, go for lip colour with a powdery matte finish. But beware. Matte lipsticks and liquids can be quite drying and leave your end result cracked and feathery.  One way to avoid this is to prep your lips before and pamper them afterwards with a generous coat of hydrating balm.
