Models Direct’s Guide On The Bright Lip Trend

The ever popular nude lip has finally taken a back seat this season, as Models Direct welcome the return of the bright lip trend!

Feb. 2, 2011 - PRLog -- Season after season, muted, pale lips have dominated beauty trends, but now that spring is just around the corner, bright oranges, reds and pinks make a valiant return to the lips of models, celebrities and the fashion-savvy team here at Models Direct.

Dubbed as one of Spring/Summer 2011’s biggest beauty trends, we’ve spotted lusciously coloured smackers on the catwalks of Diane von Furstenberg, Jill Sander and Marni to name a few.

As well as being bang on trend, a bright hue instantly makes a statement and adds vibrancy to a basic look. But be warned, to make bright lips work, be sure to keep the rest of your make up toned down and simple, especially when it comes to the eyes. If you feel that you need to balance out your face when wearing a bright lip, then try pencilling in your brows rather than going for a heavy eyeshadow.

Get The Look…

1. Begin by applying a good quality lip primer. We at Models Direct ( like MAC’s Prep & Prime; worn under lipstick, it adds light moisture, smoothes and refines the lips, all while improving the appearance of applied lip products.

2. For shapely, defined and plump looking lips, use a lip liner just outside the edge of your natural lip line and fill in. This will stop the colour from bleeding and will help the colour last longer.

3. Now for the lipstick. With such a highly pigmented lip, it’s important to use a quality lipstick that won’t crease or feather. Our favourite is Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place lipstick in Apricot. It has 12 hours staying power all while staying silky and creamy.
