Beauts, it's time to put away your soft and subtle lip colours as we exit neutrals and go straight into fifth gear. The power pout is back, and after a long two years of having to rethink our beauty habits, the deep but audacious lip using fifty shades of purplely plums has made its return.
Whether your makeup style is full glam or laid back and natural, we're looking to some of our favourite makeup artists and Instagram beauty gurus for inspiration. Keep reading to find out how we'll be wearing our bold and beautiful lip this winter.
Brushed Through Brows & Burgundy
The juxtaposition of barely there makeup and a bold lip is what makes the brushed-through brows and deep plum pout the perfect pairing. This look is ideal if you want to add a pop of colour to a natural canvas for a stand out lip.
Do like Danessa Myricks, one of the most creative makeup artists of our time this festive season by going full gloss accompanied with high shine lid, if there was ever a time to go all out.
Mulled Wine Magic
Wine-hues are timeless for winter and we're totally in love with the enhancement of the freckles makeup artists, Nikki Wolfe added softening the look but still keeping it powerful.
The Eye To Lip Co-Ord
Make it matchy matchy a la Katie Jane Hughes by teaming your bold lip with even bolder eyes, dare to add similar shades of pinks and purples to your peepers for a look that is strikingly stunning.
High Light, Low Lit Lips
Glass-like skin and deep matte lips for the win, and makeup artist Nick Posely crafted this oh so well
Drama, Drama, Drama
We couldn't complete this post without including one of the most memorable makeup looks from one of fashion's biggest nights. Super makeup artist, Hector Espinal created this overtly beautiful look for Rihanna using deep plums, rose pinks and a lace of gold. Oh, and of course diamonds, lots of diamonds.
