This Spring is off to a dark start, whether is be with weather or with trends, we are seeing deeper colors than we are used to. That is no exception with this season’s hottest lip trend – red wine. We don’t want to call ourselves trendsetters but we are all too familiar with wine stained lips on a Friday evening with friends, but now it got just an upgrade (sans the stained teeth as well). This color has been big on the runway as well as on the streets and for us, there is nothing better.
Some may be intimidated by the deepness of the shade and not really sure how to work it into their look (after all, aren’t Spring colors supposed to be bright and floral?). But all you have to do is think 90s. Remember how well Drew Barrymore, Courtney Love, and Fairuza Balk pulled it off back then? This color despite the richness of the tone is actually quite versatile. The color is almost black but not as harsh, so it makes a statement when you wear it. This is why we suggest trying it with a minimal make-up look, with very soft eye make-up for a fresher face.
Dark lips will give you a vampy look in a field of flowers this Spring, which can be very refreshing! It works to counter balance pastels and to amplify orange and pink tones. So don’t forget to have fun and make a true style statement! This could be your new go to color!
