While we may consider the red lip to be an essential night out look, the endless versatility of the crimson pout continues to impress us. For Spring 2017, the relaxed red lip is a must-have statement for either night or day. In fact, bright red lips paired with fresh skin and natural eye makeup were spotted all over the season’s catwalks. Without the usual smokey eyes and heavily contoured cheeks that often accompany red lipstick, the colour is allowed to shine on its own.
At Mary Katrantzou, a striking scarlet lip was accompanied by boyish brows and au naturel skin. Meanwhile, Simone Rocha debuted a punchy cherry-coloured lip, which stood out against an otherwise no makeup look. At Creatures of Comfort, toned-down red lipstick was paired with softly blended rosy blush, for a fresh-faced glow.
Will the casual red lip continue to make a statement in the season to come? As temperatures gradually rise and we abandon our heavily lined eye, the red lip is an effortless way to stand out in the crowd. Without the addition of sultry false lashes or dark liquid liner, this lipstick shade almost looks like a pop of colour on a bare canvas. If you’re aiming for glowing and youthful springtime beauty, fuss-free red lipstick may be the way to go this season.
