Beauty Spotting: Pucker Up! Hot Lip Trends for Spring 2013

Personally, I think lipgloss and lipsticks are the most fun ways to play up any makeup look.  With the right shades, anyone can rock a pink or red lip on any given day, even paired with just a few swipes of mascara.  This week, I’ve really been looking at the fashion week trends and have been loving the statement lips.  This spring will be all about bold, matte lips; eyeshadow is being toned down and our lips are taking center stage.

 

Usually, we tend to gravitate towards high-shine glosses.  They’re the easiest and fastest to apply on-the-g0.  Matte hues tend to dry our lips out, making them look all chapped and flaky.  Not to mention, our favorite lipsticks aren’t usually a shade of neon coral, but perhaps a light pink or red.  If we want to stay on top of the trends this season, we will have to step out of our comfort zone and take on a bright pink or orange; however we will also be seeing burgundy lips taking a comeback.  All you have to do before applying the color is put on a few generous coats of a nourishing lip balm.  Then, apply your lipstick or lipgloss and you’re all set to go!
