Exclusive to my blog readers only, I am going to reveal a HUGE upcoming trend for Summer 2013 makeup: Popsicle Lips!
WHAT? Well, I will tell you, calm down!
Popsicle Lips is really just a way to recreate that perfect summer stained lip, as if you just finished a popsicle (in my case, its cause I usually did!)
Makeup artists will be creating this look using lip stains on the inner/center of the lips and adding a clear or shimmer gloss over the top. I saw this stock photo from an upcoming 2013 designer ad and the look is fabulous
The easiest at home way to achieve it, without buying anything new, is to use a chap stick to soften lips and you can brush on a stain (lipstick if you don't have a stain) to the center of lips only
Use your finger for a quick application or touch up by applying lipstick or stain to the center of lips that you've prepped a bit with concealer
Stick with popsicle-like colors
or hey, go for the tried and true method: eat a popsicle!
I'm telling you, it will be HUGE! And its SO summery! I almost can't wait to do the look!
