It is no secret that either lips or eyes become the main accent in make-up – and, as a rule, you can complete the image with lipstick faster and easier. Fashion for lip makeup is much more versatile and diverse than it might seem at first glance, because lipstick is often the most striking makeup touch. Modern industry is ready to offer millions of shades and textures to choose from – but which ones will become especially popular in 2019?
The fashion for the “color of the unicorn” slightly weakened, but it did not finally give up. Many brands, including expensive luxury brands, belatedly reached for the trendsetters. For example, Too Faced recently released a collection dedicated to rainbow colors, adding a drop of chameleons to the sea, duochrome shadows and, of course, iridescent lipstick. Another recent novelty is Yves Saint Laurent lip polish-holography, as the completion of their classic line of nail polishes .
Alas, the creation of such textures that would look good on the lips, is a rather difficult quest. Lipstick-chameleons, because of their color, may look bald if light falls unsuccessfully on them. Not to mention the fact that this effect is quite difficult to create! If you don’t want to take risks and prefer to try on lipsticks for the “unicastry” first for a less extortionate price – pay attention to inexpensive brands like Essence, Catrice or NYX.
In front of you is another fondant trend, which finally managed to comprehend and catch up with sluggish luxury giants. Metallic lipstick is a matte or satin lipstick with a huge amount of micro-meter that creates a foil finish. Such cosmetics are available in both traditional colors and in more atypical shades (for example, green or purple) – and in both variants are guaranteed to attract attention to the lips.
Metallic lipsticks themselves are difficult to wear and demanding on the state of the lips, so that not every fashionable woman is suitable. That is why this trend, most likely, will quickly sink into oblivion. But so far, you can catch the moment and try new items from Estee Lauder or Smashbox. Lipsticks of this kind can also be found in less expensive brands – but less often. Many such lines were quickly (literally within a season or two) removed from sale.
Matte lipstick, it seems, will never leave the girls cosmetics bags completely! However, this texture has its drawbacks that many end up unhappy with – for example, a strong drying effect and “tightening” of the lips. Lime Crime (the American brand that launched a lot of trends in the rotation) created its new formula as a lightweight version of matte lipstick. And she has every chance of gaining huge popularity!
Plushies (“plush”) – a cross between a matte lipstick and tint. These lipsticks fall much thinner and lighter, without creating a dense matte coating on the lips. A similar formula can also be found in the assortment of the American brand ColourPop at a very affordable cost – and it is quite likely that in 2019 many other manufacturers of cosmetics will pick up this idea.
In general, the dull dullness in the autumn-winter 2018-2019 season has lost ground. It is possible that this is due to the great influence that Korean manufacturers have on cosmetic fashion. They prefer everything that is radiant – shiny skin, shiny lips … Because of this, girls are increasingly claiming that they are tired of matte lipstick – and, although they still continue to develop and produce, lip gloss in such conditions are becoming increasingly relevant.
One of the first to catch this trend was the same Lime Crime. In an effort to be on the crest of a fashionable wave, they released Wet Cherry (wet cherries) lacquer gloss. The essence of how they look on the lips is fully described by the name – this is a very glossy wet coating. Such lipsticks and gloss can be found in the regular collections of brands in all price categories, so that you will have what to choose from without Lime Crime.
Recently, manufacturers of decorative cosmetics to the transparency and maximum naturalness of the image. Light tonal bases (or simply their absence), less bright eye makeup are in fashion … Lipsticks with a smooth contour are classics that are unlikely to ever lose relevance, but now along with them there are options with a blurred contour, applying lipstick to the middle of the lips and ottoshevkoy to the edge, and so on.
Among other things, European brands were carried away by an attempt to catch up with Korean brands in the production of tints. This is a pure pigment, which just like to apply unevenly, without a clear contour, and which for a long time is not smeared, eating into the skin of the lips. Similar and previously encountered – for example, in nice pin-up brands Benefit or The Balm (for the first ones, tint was the first product released), but now it has moved to a more massive segment. For example, such a product has been released by the highly selling French brand Clarins.
Fashion colors of lipstick in 2019
The main color of 2019 is purple and all its shades. Whole palette of shadows began to appear in this range, as it used to be with variations of red and purple, and, of course, a lot of lipsticks with various finishes began to appear in these shades. Some publications rightly call purple “new red.” It is not difficult to choose for yourself a shade in such a variety – from neon lilac to dark grape.
More conservative fashionistas who do not see themselves with their lips the color of grapes, should look at the cherry. It is believed that next year it will become the most popular shade of the red palette. And, of course, pink and beige nude, as well as shades with a drop of gray or purple (like the well-known “cashmere”) will not go out of fashion, being appropriate in any situation.
Various crazy colors – like green or blue – will become less common in winter, but, nevertheless, will not disappear anywhere. Remember: to try on a screaming and unbanal tone is not at all shameful! Many brands (including expensive ones) started eagerly to produce them, so lately they got used to them and ceased to be perceived as something extraordinary and deplorable.
Of course, fashion is changeable, and new trends appear every season. It makes sense to look at them and try new things, try on new tones and textures on yourself … But the most important thing is always the same condition: you should like the shade and approach its owner!
