I am back with my second installment of the Spring 11 Trending Series. Yesterday, we spoke a little about NEON lips. Yes, this is a huge trend but if you will notice it really is in conjunction with another trend we are seeing and it is Matte Lips.
Out with the Glosses and in with the Mattes.
This spring we are seeing on the runways and on red carpets tons of mattes, ranging from nudes to reds to yep, you guessed it, NEONS!
Have a look below at some of my favorites.
How can you get this look? Easy! Ditch the gloss and grab some toilet paper or paper towels and blot any of your favorite lipsticks to make them matte. You can buy "Matte" formulas- but I like using what you already have and love.
Another fun thing you can do is you is to use eyeshadow on your lips, this gives a great matte, flocked looking lip. I even have heard around that a certain popular brand is coming out with powder lipsticks!
Until the new powder lipsticks come out I would look at NARS and Illamasqua, two of my favorite brands for matte lipsticks.
Another benefit of Matte lipsticks is that they last ALL day long on your lips! Great!
Will you be embracing the Matte trend?
