Ok, can we just take a second here to thank the make-up god’s for bringing us wild and funky as funk brands and styles!? I mean, who decided to bring in the blue lipstick ladies? I love it, I think it’s daringly beautiful and that pretty much anyone that wants to stand out and bring a touch of madness to their look, should be trying out blue lippie, in some shade or form! So lets get up close and personal with the blue lip trend girls…
Seriously, I cannot get over how trendy this blue lipstick phase is that everyone seems to be going through, I mean have you ever? Yes, yes I know what you’re saying, but its fall, it’s time for vampy, warm red and orangey maroon tones for lippies isn’t it? Well, obviously those colours are still around, and still look absolutely rocking with a good smoky eye, or even a bare and natural looking eye make-up sesh, – blue has joined the crew, and in a very big way! Blue lipstick is not just the “addition” to the party ladies, no, blue lipstick is the absolute life of the party – with Rihanna strutting her gorgeously pouted blue lips all over the place, you really can’t go wrong with this one.
I also totally understand if you’re not really that into the whole blue trend that’s going on right now, some people just don’t like blue, and I get it. However, there’s no reason why you can’t go for other unconventional lip colours, like greens and purples, or even greys, which are definitely suited for the season, especially with Halloween coming up. This is ultimately good news, if you aren’t a big fan of the browns and berry colours that are making their way up the trend ladder this season as well. Even though I’ll always love a traditional vampy red lip colour, I’m not going to fool myself into thinking the traditional autumn colour palette could do with a little vavavoom to spice things up a little. So if you are all about mixing things up this autumn, then get yourself ready for one hell of a stylish journey.
Try finding the perfect Crayola inspired colour to match your style, personality and tone. Looking at celebrities use of the weird and wonderful, I always tend to end up checking out Rihanna, that girl knows how to rock anything that’s new and completely unconventional, and not only does she rock them, she quickly turns it into a trend. With girls all over the show rocking blue, green and grey lipsticks, we’re soon going look like we’re in a hipster setting of the Nightmare Before Christmas, which admittedly, sounds awesome doesn’t it?
Here’s how you can make the Blue Lippie Trend your own!
There really is nothing more embarrassing than to have to tell someone that they have lipstick on their teeth, or looking in the mirror half way through the night and you only have a line of blue lipstick holding on for dear life, and the inner of your lips are now smudged from drinking, dancing, talking. You end up feeling embarrassed, and so does everyone else. Well I’m here to save you. By following a few simple rules, you will have beautifully coloured lips through all of that, and more! To keep your pout azul for as long as humanly possible, you need to make sure you always do all of the following:
EXFOLIATE – I can’t stress this enough, get a Lip Scrub and exfoliate those babies, you don’t want any dead skin sitting on your lips giving you’re gorgeous lipstick a cracked lip effect halfway into the night
MOUSTURIZE – Just use a store bought lip balm to soften up the skin on your lips and get them healthy looking.
PRIMER – This just evens your lips out and gets them prepped for fabulous colour.
FOUNDATION AND POWDER – Blend in a light amount of your foundation around and slightly over your lips, then pat in some concealer powder to give it a very matt and finished look.
LIP LINER – I get it, we’re not from Jersey, but trust me on this one, get a lip liner in the closest possible shade of your lipstick and gently line your lips evenly and smoothly, but also colour in your lips lightly with the lip liner.
LIPSTICK – Finally, make sure that you don’t rush this step and apply your lipstick evenly and smoothly, following the shape of your own lips shape, unless you’re going for the Kardashian look, in that case make them big girls!
BLOT – Last of all, take a piece of tissue or toilet paper and split it so that its only 1 ply and then blot it on your lips, now reapply your lipstick. Do this one more time, and keep a small pack of tissues with you throughout the night so that you can blot and reply whenever you need to.
HOWEVER! If you dont trust the good old lippy, why not try out some of these Passion Lip Tattoos!
