6 of 2020’s Biggest Lip Trends

- - No comments
From purposefully blurred lipstick to dark, moody shades, these are 2020’s most trending lip looks.
From ultra-shiny lip lacquers to neon-painted pouts, these are the top new lip trends that will be vying for face time this year.

1. DARK AND DANGEROUS

We love the sheer drama that a dark lipstick so effortlessly brings. This summer we have been inundated with bright colours and sheer balms that it suddenly feels like the time is right for moody hues. From vampy plum and brick red to glossy and matte blacks, the spotlight will be on your lips, so it's best to keep the rest of your make-up minimal.

2. ULTRA-SHINY SHOTS OF COLOUR

While our beloved matte lipsticks will always have a place in our make-up bags, this year’s new vinyl-effect lip trend might just outshine the mighty matte and be the lipstick finish of the future. Think glorious colour meets high-impact shine that will not only last all day but keep your lips moisturised too.

3. NEUTRAL TERRITORY

With 676K (and counting) posts currently hashtagged #nudelip, it’s safe to say that these barely-there shades are a big deal. From pale pink to powdery peach, the perfect neutral can really perk up your complexion, giving it a fresh and youthful glow. Think pink- and rose-based hues for fair skin tones, beiges and browns for medium skin tones and shades ranging from creamy, dark caramels to rich cocoa for dark and deep skin tones.

4. METAL MOUTH

When the metallic lip trend made its return to the runway recently we knew it wouldn’t be long until it made its way to our lips too. Bold, vibrant and oh so decadent, sparkling metal shades are a fun way to add a dazzling element to your make-up look. And the best part? The shine creates the illusion that your lips are just that naturally pillowy – love!

5. NEON IS SO NOW

If you’re not best buds with bright colours by now, it’s time to get acquainted because this year’s hues are even punchier and more vibrant than ever before. Think traffic-stopping fiery reds and hot pink hues that will instantly breathe life into your make-up. Trust us, it’s the trend that will be on everyone’s lips.

6. BLURRED LINES

For some of us the struggle to perfectly apply lipstick is real. Thankfully the stained blurred-lip trend is rewriting the rulebook – that is, you can (and should) purposefully mess up your application, within reason of course. Using lip stains and cushion applicators will create the diffused look with ease but you can also apply a bullet lipstick from the centre of your lips and smudge the colour to the outer corners and edges with your finger.
