When you envision the shades of spring, you’re probably thinking of pastels like lilac, jade green and baby pink. However, while using these hues in your makeup routine can be refreshing, Marie Claire Magazine suggests going a bit bolder this season for an unexpected twist on spring fashion.
“It’s an unexpected – and fun – time of year to try a darker lip color,” Gina Brooke, artistic director for Shu Uemura, told the news source. Playing around with lip color is the easiest way to amp up the pigment on your lips.
Before you start, it’s best to prep your lips with a scrub, then use a treatment like June Jacobs – Lip Renewal to make them soft. Your lipstick will last longer on a smooth surface, reports the news source.
Apply a lip liner like Colorescience – Lip Pencils in a nude shade or one that matches the color you’re using. This will prevent any bleeding and enhance the shape of your lips. Afterward, slick on your bold color and prepare to turn heads!
