Hot Lipstick Colors for Spring

Boldly painted lips were all the rage across spring 2017 fashion week runways, and are the perfect way to add some polish to your look. From glamorously glossy to fluorescent finishes, these are the hottest lipstick colors for this spring.

Natural look

Poppy Pink
Pink is set to be one of the key colors for this spring, but, when it comes to your lipstick, pretty pastel pinks are out, and bold magentas are in. Poppy pink is one of the hottest shades out there, especially with a matte finish, but you need to ensure that your lips have been primed in advance if you want this look to be long-lasting, as matte finishes do tend to require a bit of extra upkeep.

Fluorescent Orange
Orange has been making a comeback for a while, but, just like with pink, the key orange lipstick shades for this year are bold and bright, never failing to make a statement. Opt for shades that are as pigmented as possible, with a glossy, shiny finish.

Dusty Rose
Muted, dusty hues of rose were seen all over the spring 2017 runways, and are the ideal shade for those who want something slightly darker than their natural color, but still relatively subtle. While this color can be incorporated into so many different beauty looks, wearing it with a matching eye shadow and blush will give you a chic and modern monochromatic look.

Nude, Beige and Brown
Nudes, beiges and browns have been popular lipstick colors for a few seasons now, and this shows no signs of changing. The great aspect to these neutral shades is that they are so versatile, and will work no matter your skin tone.

Bright and Vivid Editorial Colors
While green, blue or purple may not be lipstick shades that you are able to wear on an everyday basis, they are fresh, modern, and absolutely perfect for a special occasion when you really want to make a statement. As edgy and daring as these colors may be, you do need to pay special attention to the rest of your look, so as to keep it all high fashion and avant garde rather than over-the-top.

Glitter Lips
Glitter lips work with just about every shade, and are the perfect way to add a sultry sparkle to your look. There are two ways in which you can do this, with the first being to pat loose glitter onto your lips. Alternatively, you can opt for a glitter-infused lip gloss to apply over your lipstick, which is often the easiest and most convenient method.

Glamorously Glossy
Just like with glitter lips, ultra glossy lips can be created with every color. Whether you opt for a subtle nude or a deep wine, just make sure you apply plenty of reflecting gloss on top.

There is quite a variety when it comes to the hottest lipstick colors for this spring, giving you plenty of options for finding something that works with your personal style. Whether you opt for poppy pink with a coating of gloss and glitter, or an understated matte dusty rose, take advantage of these trends and allow your lips to really make a statement.

With spring quickly approaching, it is time to turn your attention to the season’s upcoming fashion trends, with some of the hottest ones having been spotted at New York Fashion Week. From energetic stripes to feminine florals, here is all you need to know if you are looking to update your wardrobe for spring 2017.

Energetic Stripes
Stripes often tend to make a comeback in the spring, but rather than featuring delicate pastels, 2017 is all about bold, vibrant and energetic stripes. Just about every color was seen in stripe form on the runways, with graphic primary colors being the most popular, especially when anchored down with a base of black.

80’s Glam
Garments inspired by 80’s glam were also extremely prevalent on the runways of New York Fashion Week, with everything from metallic fabrics to graphic t-shirts. Leather jackets, mini skirts and 80’s inspired sneakers are also set to be popular this season, and can easily be styled with items that you already own to give your look more of a modern edge.

Feminine Florals
Florals are another print that are always a hit in the spring, and while this may not be anything new, this season’s florals are bright, bold and fresh. From Tanya Taylor to Tibi, florals appeared on just about everything on the runways, from long-tiered skirts to ruffled jumpsuits, resulting in many show-stopping outfits.

Ruffles
Ruffles are beautifully feminine, and made a huge appearance at New York Fashion Week, with just about every runway show featuring a certain amount of flounce. However, while some of these looks may have seemed slightly over-the-top, other designers managed to perfectly balance out their ruffles with some tailored sleekness, such as the one-shouldered dress from J. Crew, which also featured stripes, and the voluminous skirt from Zimmerman.

Key Colors
There are always certain colors that dominate each season, and, as seen at New York Fashion Week, the shades that you can expect to see more of this spring are nude colors, such as hazelnut and khaki, as well as soft, pretty shades, with pink being especially popular. However, neon shades have also made a comeback, as seen on the runways of DKNY, Phillip Lim, Jason Wu and so many more, from bright blues to neon greens, promising to add a bright pop of color to any outfit.

Statement Earrings
Statement jewelry has been all the rage for a while, but this trend has usually focused on items such as rings and necklaces, with earrings being neglected. However, New York Fashion Week turned this all around with their incredible selection of statement earrings. From the neon pink shoulder-grazing shapes from Delpozo to the large double hoops from Hellessy, these pieces not only make quite the statement, but also beautifully frame the face and make it the focal point of your look.

Fashion trends are always coming and going, with each season bringing with it new and exciting looks. While some of these trends may be common in the spring, they were all presented in fresh and innovative ways at New York Fashion Week, exuding a huge amount of creativity and style.
