:: Lip colour trends for Spring/Summer 2011 ::

Now that we are coming to the end of the drab winter weather, it's time to think about the sun!!!! (If we see it in Scotland lol.)

“Nude” seems to be the key when it comes to spring/summer 2011 makeup trends. 
This is one choice that is applied not only for the skin and eyes, but for your lips too. Whether you choose a soft pink,coral or beige.
 You can wear a completely nude makeup or, to really mix it up for day or a night time look, go for a more intense and dramatic eye makeup and nude lips. 
When applying a nude lip colour, remember that your lips should be moisturized in order to look healthy so using a good lip balm is key.(I like Burt's Bees or E45) 

Also, zesty fun colours really complement your summer glow! Think bright pinks,reds!

Light colors work great on thinner lips as they make them look plumper and with a little clear lip gloss they really fill out!

Here's some colours I've tried.....


Girlie baby pink! I used Avon's Colour Trend in Iced Champink with a clear gloss.


Colourful coral! This one is Barry M's number 53 again with a little gloss


Then a zesty raspberry twist! This one is a red glitter gloss from Barry M in strawberry glitter, this one is great as you can use it all through spring/summer and is great in winter over a red lipstick for a great festive look.

Are you guys experimenting with your spring/summer look yet?
