Beauty: Lipstick Colors’ Trends in 2012

Good morning pretty girls!

As I’ve promised yesterday, today it will be all about Spring Summer 2012 lipstick trends. As we enter the new seasons, you have to keep in mind that this year it’s all about very lightweight lipsticks, in sheer formulas with glossy finishes.

Here’s a quick round-up of the latest lipstick colors trend in 2012: Hot Red, Coral Red/Tangerine/Orange, Peach, Bright Fuchsia, Light Pink, Plum and Maroon.

1. Red, Orange, Peach

Red lipstick/gloss is officially considered the hottest lipstick. In 2012, hot red stays in to give you the most attractive lips. It’s a classic to have!

As for Orange/Tangerine, it was elected the color of the year 2012. It will rock your outfits and give you a fresh yet extremely sexy look!

Finally, peach lipstick comes in as part of the natural makeup trend. These will add charm and elegance to both strong and natural makeups.

Red, Orange, Peach

The Pinks:

Light pink as for peach, is part of most Spring 2012 makeup collections, it’s a classic but also a lovely natural touch for your lips; especially when it’s in a sheer finish. Perfect with smokey eyes!

Strong fuchsia is a fun, trendy and gorgeous color that will add a lot of volume to your lips but also a lot of allure to your makeup. Amazing with just black mascara on your eyes and a light pink blush for your cheeks.

Plum and Maroon: 

Plum is another big lipstick color trend for Spring 2012, the interesting part is how this shade is actually a strong color but considered part of natural makeup. There are various shades of plum.

Last but not least, Maroon is this very voguish color between brown and red. It’s all over the catwalks and I just love it!!

Now it’s time to take a pen and paper, write down what’s missing in your makeup bags and rush to the stores!

Fashionably yours,
