Anyone interested in hearing the new trends in make up for the spring?
Messy make up and popsicle lips.
“The new look for the new year is effortless, minimalist, just-out-of-bed-with-your-lover, according to leading hair and makeup artists. They say that stiff coiffures, overdone eyes, defined lips and matte skin are out. Tousled hair, smudged eyeliner, dewy lips and luminous skin are in.”
Bitch, PLEASEEEE, I roll out of bed looking like that! Well not quite, but I am excited that for once what is hip seems actually doable! This isn’t really something to brag about because it is generally due to my lack of self grooming and oodles of frozen treats, but wahoo! Love this article in the NY Times about how imperfect make up and bright stained lips are what this year’s look is all about.
What is that you say? “Perfection got slightly boring.” Ahem, I beg your pardon? That is music to my hears.
“To achieve the Popsicle, Ms. Warren advised forgoing lip liners and wands and applying a swab of bright color in the center of the lips, then pressing them together and rolling. “The darkest gradation should be in the center and should blast out to nothing,” she said, adding that the technique is also a way for women timid about sporting a high-wattage lip to try electric orange or red.”
