The Beauty Trend - Wine-Stained Lips

I love a bold lip. Day to day, I live for a nude pout, but a bold lip adds something special. Red oozes elegance; a sexy Hollywood vixen look. And pink, well pink is my weapon. I told my editor that wearing a bold pink lip brightens the face when you’re feeling a bit dull/ill/rough from the night before – I think it distracts from the eyes.

Berry lips are probably my favourite, though. M.A.C’s Deep Attraction (discontinued. Sob), and Rebel (I think the deep colour works well with darker skintones). A smooth, moisturised finish makes lips look fuller and more pristine, which is why I am not a fan of the whole wine-stained lips trend. Rather than pulling a look together, it dishevels it somewhat. 

However, last week, on a whim, I picked up M.A.C’s Currant lip liner (I know it’s “summer” but with this crazy weather I’m looking ahead to autumn). It was too insatiably dark and gothic not to and I thought it would be lovely to pop on and blend with a gloss for a light flush of colour. So I thought since I have the perfect coloured liner and my gorgeous Lipstick Queen velvet rope lipstick in entourage, I thought I would give it a whirl. I moisturised my lips, put the lip liner all over my lips, blended and then dabbed on the lipstick.

I’m still not a fan of this trend. I think it’s pretty risky especially for A/W when lips can be at their most chapped. I’ll be leaving this one to the models.
