Updating your look to keep with new trends this year can get rather expensive. If you simply can’t swing the whole package, think about adding a wearable Taylor Swift red lip for a fresh, on-trend look.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]When it came to lips and lipsticks, The runways this year were saturated with a wide range of red lip shades. Celebrity makeup artists agree that the red lip should be incorporated into your makeup routine. There’s a variety of shades that any woman and skin tone can rock with ease.[/perfectpullquote]
Although the red lip is especially highlighted this season, red lips are classic and always on-trend if worn correctly. The one thing you do want to remember is that when you go for a bold lip, always keep the rest of your makeup subtle. Your eye makeup and lip color should not compete with each other. Keep one light and the other bold. If you prefer a smoky eye, choose a sheer shade of nude/red to put your best face forward and look polished and fashion-forward.
The popular shades for Spring/Summer 2017 fall under a wide spectrum of red colors. Any variation of red, including vibrant pinks and deeper violets as well as some lighter-hued pinks, are all the rage right now.
