Gigi SS17 berry


Post by Hannah Tyrrell

When Gigi Hadid walked the Anna Sui SS17 catwalk wearing berry lipstick, the world assumed Anna had forgotten summer and skipped straight to autumn. But, no – surprising as it is, your favourite autumnal lipstick shade is summer’s hottest lip trend. Here’s how to work it IRL this August…

Bite me!

Throw out the lipstick application rulebook this season – no lined, filled and perfectly structured lips here. A care-free attitude to application is key! Try out a Rosie Huntington-Whiteley ‘bitten’ stain of berry lipstick, with blurred edges. Plump, with a simple flush of colour is the look to go for.

Get this look by taking Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Cathedral on the end of a lip brush and blend into moisturised lips. Start in the middle and work out to avoid a perfectly outlined look. Mwah!

Soften up

Autumn berry lip looks are bold, unapologetic and a little bit vampy, but summer requires a somewhat softer approach. Instead of a block of deep purple, opt for a hint of pinky-plum – it’s both summery and sexy! This (blurry, but you get the idea) shot of Priyanka Chopra is a perfect example. Two words – beach Goddess. Snm!

Get glossy

The final way to wear your berry tones for summer is (of course) in a lipgloss – although be sure to avoid windy days. Buxom’s Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly is a sultry, shimmery mauve shade, and our summer staple! Not only is it a stunning muted berry shade for August, it boasts plumping and moisturising ingredients for a beautiful bombshell pout. Try it!
