Author: Jasmine Cottan Date Posted: 11 June 2019
Tired of classic reds and baby pinks adorning your lips? You want to see something other than fuchsia pink and cherry red lipsticks and lip-colours headlining the leading fashion and beauty magazines? We feel you.
Luckily, 2019's eclectic selection of trending colours for this winter has opened the doorway to bolder, more forward-thinking shades - eye-popping blues, royal purples and sultry greens to be exact. You can read more about the trending autumn/winter hues here!
Why Blue, Purple and Green
The colour blue has a futuristic, technological and contemporary aura. It doesn't matter if its marine blue, pale blue, cyan, sky blue, digital blue (facebook blue) or navy, any blue-tone is a striking shade on any skin colour, makes an immediate high-definition impact and is a great base colour for dimensional lip looks.
A matte lipstick in purple also denotes a sophisticated, royal air but with a twist. Girls who don purple on their lips are said to always be up to date with the latest trends and described as the forward-thinking and tech-savvy woman who represents the positive changes of today's ever moving society.
This autumn and winter, mossy shades, bright lime greens, cool-toned olives and any forest green hue on our lips, connects us to the natural world we live in. As philosophical as it sounds, the colour green this year is very much a beauty banner promoting our efforts for improved sustainability and organic products.
