You are enviable. Babies are born and have that perfect lip shade: rosewood-colored, a little darker than your own skin. The children do not care about the lip tone. Not so with the older generation: a healthy, intense lip color has always been a sign of vitality. For thousands of years, people have tried to intensify the color of their own lips. Be it with a toothbrush, peeling, or various other products. This is how the beauty trend succeeds in summer 2021.
Like red lipstick, natural lips never go out of style. Made-up lips that look almost bare-baked are a huge hype on YouTube and other social channels. In long tutorials, vloggers explain how to find the perfect MLBB shade, i.e. the best "My Lips But the Better" tone. Even on the runway, natural, healthy lips can always be seen. For the summer of 2021, for example, often in a slightly glossy version. At Boss, for example, but also at Alberta Ferretti, Isabel Marant, and Ports 1961.
Demand determines supply. There are plenty of products to enhance your own lip color. You are almost overwhelmed by the oversupply. So a tip: once you've found a product that perfectly matches your lip tone, sticks with it. You have the choice between:
It may sound strange, but often the color of the inner lip or even the gums gives clues to the perfect lip tone. If the skin there is very light and rather cool, cappuccino and terracotta colors probably look unnatural. These tones are ideal for warm, darker skin types whose lip color is often darker anyway. A rose-colored gloss is perfect for many light skin types. Different lip tones are rare but quite possible. If you are one of the wearers, it is best to mix your lip color. Typically, a shade that is a shade darker than your natural lip color looks best. The lips are more defined, but still, look very natural. Beautician Bobbi Brown once recommended applying your lipstick of choice when you are completely bare of makeup. If it then looks good, the color is really flattering. Make-up artists like to use the following colors for natural lips:
Lipsticks with a creamy, velvety, or matt texture are particularly pleasant to wear. Adam Sidwell, Education and Events Manager at Hourglass Cosmetics reveal that shades are now in demand that is two-thirds stronger than your own lip color and opaque. This trend is called “Powerful Neutral”. The Velvet lip cream from Hourglass, according to Sidwell, is ideally suited for this with its intense color and matte finish.
Regardless of which product you choose, it is important that it moisturizes the lips and does not dry them out, as otherwise unsightly flakes can form. The finish may be slightly shiny and glossy. Very dull lips can quickly appear covered in make-up and even make you older than you actually are. After all, the goal is rosy and vital lips.
