Choosing the right lipstick is crucial when it comes to beauty and makeup. A lipstick can be a centerpiece of your makeup, or it can nicely complement your entire look. This 2017 has been the year when many crazy lip trends were born, so let’s check out what is getting the stylists and bloggers talking this year.
Top 3 Unique Lip Trends of 2017
If you’ve spent any time at all on a beauty blog, you must have seen at least one picture of a character or a whole scene painted on someone’s lips. Cartoon characters are most popular, but there is so much to be seen! This art form requires a very steady hand, but aside from that, not many tools. Having a lot of brushes can certainly make the process easier and quicker, but you can totally use just one precise brush and a lot of cleaning products. These are not suitable for your everyday look, but they are a lot of fun to create and they can be done by virtually anybody. If you want to give it a go, make sure you plan your design in advance, because you don’t want to realize you don’t like the look of it when you are halfway through. Also, be very gentle when removing it because your skin will have been through a lot and you don’t want to irritate it even more by scraping away the makeup.
The year 2017 seems to be the year of everything that sparkles – and lipsticks are no exception! Throw the old “no glitter during the day” rule out the window, we are in the future now. Flashy lips are a sure way to get noticed, and achieving them is probably easier than you think. The most important thing when buying your glitter is to be absolutely sure it is safe for your skin, and safe if it is ingested. Anything that is going on your lips is sure to partially end up in your stomach, so triple check and buy a good quality brand. Then it is just a matter of applying a good, creamy lipstick or lip balm and padding on the glitter with a brush or sponge. You can clean up around the edges when you are done with a little bit of concealer to give your lips a crisp, modern look.
If we take just a tiny step back, we will clearly see that anything we put on our lips is just framing our smile – and that is the most important part! Having a beautiful smile will get you far in life, and if you want to have those perfect pearly whites, you might want to consider getting invisible braces to help you along. Regularly brushing your teeth goes without saying, and if you want to make your teeth whiter, make sure you have a professional do it because putting random whiteners on your teeth can seriously damage them. And, of course, we can’t forget about the lips themselves! Make sure that before you apply your lipstick, you gently exfoliate your lips and apply a good moisturizer because no lipstick can look good on dry, cracked lips.
Those are the wildest and craziest lip trends of this year so far, but of course, trends come and go and we might just see nudes and pale pinks in summer or autumn! Beauty bloggers around the world will be sure to let us know what’s in, but you should always choose whatever you think is the best frame for your smile!
