It's no longer about simply sticking to one shade, tone or texture! Now there are a variety of cool new ways to wear your pout and really create a statement with your luscious lips! We've put together the top trends for 2017 to help you decide what lip trend would suit your style best.....
1) Black Top Coat
Looking to add an edge to your style? Then the black top coat is for you! Experiment with layers, and leave single colours and textures well and truly behind you! The top coat will help add depth and definition to your look, giving you a touch of mystery to your everyday style. Whilst they may at first look a touch intimidating, there are a variety of options from Chanel and Lipstick Queen that will give you a subtle, creative edge. Many of the top coats provide a super glossy finish without the stickiness - an entirely modern concept. There are also glosses this season that give a lovely shimmering finish and darken your colour of choice, creating a lace-like veil on the lips!
2) Marble Effect Lipstick
We've all seen the beautiful marble effects used in the nail industry but what about our luscious lips? New to this season is a range of amazing marble effect lipsticks creating a gorgeous, rich wash of colour over our lips. Now you can have a range of perfect hues with a stunning subtle sheeny finish, mixing a variety of tones and textures into one look.
3) The Lip Kit
Lip Kits are all the rage right now with a variety of styles to choose from! From gorgeous nude liners to liquid lipsticks, you can create the perfect bold, statement that will last all day! If you're after pout perfection you should invest in a matte liquid lip paint to give a fierce, statement lip. Each kit is ultra-long wearing, enhancing your gorgeous smile throughout the day!
4) Lip Contouring
It's finally arrived girls, contouring is no longer simply for your cheekbones but now has entered the world of lipstick! Combining lipstick and liner, you can now create the perfect contour for your luscious lips. Innovation meets lip artistry with a dual lip colour and shaping tool. A combined pencil and concealer stick enables you to shape, enhance and define your lips for full coverage. You can use lighter shades together with a deeper lip colour to add dimension, shape and create an ombre effect to your lips from subtle contour to high definition contrast!
5) A touch of youth
New for this season are the rise in Chubby Sticks, giving a youthful twist with a distinctly Crayola feel! Coming in a variety of shades colour-matched with some of the most unique Crayola colours you can enjoy bright oranges and fuchsia shades! Feel like a kid again and experiment with fun, bright tones! Each Chubby Stick will also help relieve dry, cracked lips, providing immediate moisturisation! Apply layerable shades, allowing you to mix and match to create one-of-a-kind lip colour!
6) Glittery Top Coat
You can now add a shimmering sheen to your lips, for a subtle, sparkly look! Apply the top coat over a lipstick or even apply straight to bare lips! The mega-sparkle top coat is specially formulated to wear over matte liquid lipstick, so you can have an underlying lip colour that stays matte, dazzling the world with ethereal elegance! If you're after a wash of sparkle, whilst keeping your lip colour matte this is the look for you!
7) Two-Toned Look
Looking to experiment with your lip colour? Mix and match a variety of shades in this two toned look! For long lasting, colour intense lipstick you can get a semi-matte cushioned finish, half-way between matte and satin!
