Lipstick Trends 2017.Makeup trends come and go, yet lipsticks never lose their power in creating dramatic beauty. It’s not by chance that one of the best beauty tricks of French women is keeping their entire face bare and using just a tint of color on their lips, which instantly adds youthfulness and freshness to their looks. Whether you love to make your lips the focus of your makeup using intense shades or give preference to natural and neutral shades, there are dozens of techniques of applying lipstick. From diffusing effects and ombre to the classic lip look, here are a few ways you can use lipstick to master the major beauty trends of the moment! The main peculiarity of the ombre lip trend is using darker shades on the central portions of the lips and diffusing the color with much lighter matching tones applied on the contour of the lips. Using dark lip liners is an absolute don’t in this case. To create such an effect, you’ll need two lipstick colors – a basic tone, which should be light and needs to be applied all over your lips and a brighter and deeper shade that is used for accenting the central part of the lips. So you need to apply the light lipstick first and give a matte texture to it for better results. Than add a splash of color on the central part of the lips and start diffusing it with a matching lip liner, not touching the contours. At first sight the gradient lip trend seems to be the same as the ombre one, however, there are slight differences. Actually, the gradient effect creates a deliberate contrast and can be considered as a more radical variant of the ombre look. When playing with lighter tones you tend to create a vampy look, while brighter shades can be mixed and matched for creating juicy and playful looks. For instance, you can apply a very basic neutral color on all over your lips and then start contouring them with a much intense shade, such as red. Then fill in the central part of the lips with a contrasting but matching color, such as orange and blend them together gently for a uniform look.
Another easy method of visually augmenting lips is using a light pencil, which is especially an ideal trick for those, who prefer to keep their lips neutral without adding any color to them. You need to contour the edges of the lips with a light pencil or concealer and blend the lines with your skin. If you don’t have a fair skin tone, pick a color with a pinkish tint.It’s really hard to apply a darkly colored lipstick flawlessly, especially when you are dealing with shades of red. The primary trick is using a lip pencil identical with the color of the lipstick, which will give the perfect contour to your lips. When applying the lip pencil, move from the corners to the center when working on the upper lip, and from the center to the corners when applying it on the lower lip. After this, you need to apply the lipstick on the central portions joining the color with the contours. In this case too many beauticians apply the same lip pencil all over the lips, using the lipstick over this. Another trick is applying foundation on bare lips, using a tissue to remove any excess of it from the lips and then applying the same lip pencil on the edges and then the dark lipstick on all the pout.
