Beauty by the Book: Color-Blocking Lips

Spring officially begins tomorrow but you wouldn’t know that with the wild temperature swings of late. To get in the mood of spring, I have found myself gravitating towards my seasonal bright makeup such as bubblegum pink blushes and sizzling coral nail polishes. One such trend for spring that was seen on this year’s and last year’s runways was color-blocking. Color-blocking is where you juxtapose two bright shades to create a brilliant yet modern take on color. I love the idea of color-blocking my lip color as this would add a touch of whimsy to what would otherwise be an ordinary spring bright lip. The key to this trend is pairing up the perfect two shades for your skin tone.

  • For those who have cool undertones, I would suggest going for a bright bubblegum pink paired with a light lavender or purple shade. It’s all about working with lip colors that have cool undertones.
  • For those with warm undertones, I would suggest going for a hot coral paired with a dazzling bright fuchsia. The effect is sure to get you noticed.
