Orange Crush

May 27, 2011

Both beauty and fashion have been influenced and overwhelmed by bold, bright colors this season. Fuchsias, magentas, oranges, and reds have defined the Spring/Summer 2011 collections. However, in beauty, bold lips have been favored throughout editorials, covers, and runway looks. A pop of color on the lips can transform any look-not only can bright lipstick hues be eye-catching, but they can also enhance a subdued outfit. I was enchanted by Jil Sander's S/S '11 collection where magnificent colored lips were added to each brilliant ensemble. Teen Vogue has certainly brought this trend into their Spring and Summer issues of the magazine, with Selena Gomez's gorgeous red-colored lips throughout the shoot, and Nyasha Matonhodze's statement orange, pink, and red lips in the editorial, Sporty Spice. 


What do you think of the looks above? This is one beauty trend I am absolutely in love with, and hoping to try out, but perhaps starting off with a slightly softer tone. To get this look, I am craving Dior Addict Lipsticks. Although the lipsticks play around with softer colors, Dior created the perfect beauty collection for Summer. 

For this trend, I believe the boldest, brightest way to go is to match statement lips with statement colors in fashion. Zara, as I have mentioned many times this year, has produced the best possible high-street collection for this season. If you are opting for eye-catching lips, match them up with fresh looks from Zara. As Teen Vogue stated, "Go big and bright or go home!" 



What do you think of statement lips? Are these colors too bold, or are they the perfect S/S '11 trend?
