Whether you’ve cleared out your makeup drawers and shopping for new lip shades, or you’re just seeking fresh inspiration to shake up your usual routine, Spring runway looks are always a breath of fresh air for the colour and vigour they spring on the runways after the doom and gloom of the colder months.

Here are the lip colours you should pick up for this season, and they work, no matter what colour your skin is!


Bright Red

Take cues from Rodarte’s Spring Summer 2019 runways and wear your bold red lip loud and proud.

NARS Semi Matte Lipstick in Jungle Red is a scarlet number so iconic that you wouldn’t want anything else. It’s just a badass femme fettle red perfect to welcome the new season.


Sheer Berry

Keep it low maintenance with berry-hued lips using a tinted lip balm like Fresh’s Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 in Poppy will do the trick.

You can smear it all over, or if you’d like to try something a little different, concentrate the colour towards the middle of our pout and layer a clear gloss over.


Just Gloss

Another 90s inspired trend that’s making a comeback, the ‘just gloss’ look will have you combing through your makeup drawer for your forgotten favourites.

Prabal Gurung’s models had the perfectly wearable dewy skin with glossy lips and a rim of black eyeliner and we’re into it.

Purple reigned on Marta Jabukowski’s Spring Summer 2019 show, which complemented her collection full of pastel hues and capri pants, reminiscent of being a teenager in the 2000s.

Purple lips is a little harder to wear off the runway. Try Clinique Chubby Plump & Shine Liquid Lip Plumping Gloss in Goliath Grape that lets you gently ease into the colour purple before going full-on. Huda Beauty Lip Strobe in Fearless is worth picking up too!


Fuschia Pink

Go bold or go home and try this look, with barely there everything else that was all the rage on both male and female models at Chalayan.

Pick up Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Backstage Bambi for your most head-turning get up yet.
