Here we are in late February and the end of winter is in sight. When the cold has finally worn out of the air and when you finally believe that it is going to start warming up after a frigid winter, one of the best ways to prepare for spring is to consider your lips! Your lipstick allows you to add some fantastic color to the first cool days of spring, and you’ll find that with a little bit of consideration, you are going to be able to change your entire look. Check out these luscious lipsticks to think about as spring moves in. The shades have enough coolness to still be winter friendly shades, but are lively enough to work in early spring as well.
* Deep Mulberry Purples
When you want to make an evening look pop, don’t be afraid to choose a wonderfully rich deep purple for your outfit. Choosing a purple in the mulberry shade keeps it warm enough to be inviting while still being cool enough to be worn with nearly everything. As an example of this shade, consider NARS ‘Fast Ride,” which gives your lips that deliciously pouty flavor.
* Red Plum Purples
If you are after something more fun and flirty, look for a very reddish purple. A red purple allows you to warm up a rather dull outfit, while giving you some fantastic color to your face. This is a shade that does well on people with very warm skin tones, so if you have a lot of olive or yellow in your skin, this is the lipstick for you. One great choice in the red plummy purples is Clinique’s “Richer Raisin” Chubby Stick. Their Chubby Stick line is loaded with shea butter, which makes this a fantastic choice for keeping your lips soft.
* Raspberry Pink
When you want to call to mind an absolutely delicious color and flavor, consider using a raspberry pink lipstick. Raspberry pink typically needs a warn outfit to go with it, but it is a shade that suits people with most complexions very easily. Another great advantage that comes with wearing raspberry pink lipstick this spring is that it works well for both a nighttime and daytime look. An example of a raspberry pink lipstick that you might enjoy is Bobbi Brown’s soft and lovely Tulle Lip Color.
* Brick Red
Brick red lipstick is the perfect choice for the person who loves vivid colors and isn’t afraid to show it. A vibrant brick red is a color that goes well with very stark outfits. When you have a lot of outfits that utilize the color blocking philosophy, a brick red adds a vibrant flag of color to the finished effect. Take a moment to look at Buxom’s Barcelona Big & Healthy Lip Stick for an example of this color and to see what it can do for you.
* Icy Pink
If you are someone who wears a great deal of monochrome clothing, and especially when you love stark black, choose to offset the severity of your outfit by using an icy pink lipstick. Icy pink is an ideal choice for the last cold days of winter and the first cool days of spring. For a fantastic icy pink lipstick, check out Illamasqua’s Plunge lipstick.
To add a little bit of color and life to your outfit consider some of the hot lipstick shades available. This is the perfect time to revamp you look and to add a splash of color to the way you do things.
