Wearing: Topshop Lipstick in Clueless
You read that right, not blurred lines, blurred lips! It's the trend that's set to make the imperfect, perfect and looking damn cool in the process. It's time to get out your leather jacket, backcomb your hair, crack out your best cat flick and then try this neat little trick on for size.
This is the most simple makeup trend going, and all it requires is your favourite lipstick and one of your fingers. I opted for a deep, vibrant pink as it's set to be big for this coming S/S, but don't forget the Pantone colour of the year (Radiant Orchid). There's no messing about with a lip brush, just apply the colour directly onto the lips from the bullet, building up the colour in stages after blotting. Once you've reached your desired opacity, use a finger and press along the lip line to give it a blurred and soft edge. If you prefer an even more extreme version, only apply lipstick to the centre and use a lip brush to blend outwardly. This way you can achieve a true gradient and turn those night time colours into ones you can wear to work.
The less defined the better, you want that lipstick to almost bleed into the outline of your lips. It's got such a grungey vibe to it, perfect for shaking up your typical red lip or going crazy with an old favourite. I will be using this on most of my looks going forward, to hell with lip liner!
