Beauty trend: Bright Lips
If there is only one beauty trend you start practising now for next Spring/Summer then make it the bright lip. The catwalks at Fashion Week showcases have been filled with models displaying a dewy and fresh complexion coupled with a stand-out and striking mouth colour.

In particular a neon orange shade was the one most popular. To achieve a flawless look with such a strong hue Aveda Global Makeup Director Janell Geason paired luminous skin with a bright, bold lip using the Aveda Spring/Summer 13 Colour Collection at the William Okpo Spring/Summer 13 Presentation.

“The makeup is natural but daring at the same time,” Janell explained. “The skin looks lightly bronzed and glowing, like beautiful summer skin. The bright lip is fun and fearless with a matte finish to balance the radiant complexion.”

“To create the look line and fill in lips using Aveda Lip Pencil in Barberry Bloom (available from February 2013). Smooth the colour with a small eyeshadow brush for a matte finish, rounding out the cupid’s bow,” Janell advised.

At the Paul Smith fashion shows and using the MAC makeup range, a techno lip look was also created. Makeup artist Petros Petrohilos explained how they created a long-lasting and matte finish that was none the less brilliantly bright for the models seen on the catwalks.

“We have layered three products:, a basic lip liner, Lady Danger lipstick from a palette, then powder pigment, in Neon Orange, just to make that lip as bright and as matte as possible,” Petros explained.

To compliment this look keep hair slicked back and simple to let the mouth do all the talking. © Cover Media
