Berry-coloured lips took centre stage at the Carolina Herrera New York Fashion Week 2014 and will be a huge beauty trend in Autumn 2015. We show you how to get the look.
Berry-toned colours are all the rage right now. Think seductively sweet lips complemented by flushed cheeks, bright eyes and a glowing complexion.
Gently cleanse and tone your skin before applying a light moisturiser or foundation primer. Cover any blemishes or spots with a concealer stick and apply a mineral foundation to your whole face and décolletage, which will cover problem areas and give you a natural glow without clogging up your pores.
Brush powder blusher onto your cheekbones in swift upwards movements, starting from the apples of your cheeks. Be careful when you select the shade – it has to look warm and rosy but not over the top so steer clear of very bright shades. For superstar shimmer, lightly apply a touch of bronze highlighter to your brow bones and cheekbones.
For bright eyes, lightly dust your eyelids with a metallic colour from your lash line to the crease. Line the inner rim of your lower lashes with a highlighter pencil and draw a line along the outside edge of your lower lash line with a brown eye pencil, then lightly smudge for a softer look. Use an eyelash curler to curl your lashes and apply a slick of transparent or brown mascara for a natural effect. Don’t forget to tweeze your eyebrows for a neater look!
For smooth, kissable lips, exfoliate using a baby toothbrush and a light scrub. Apply a nonstick lip balm and pat the excess with a tissue.
Finally, to create gorgeous berry lips, carefully line your lips with a nude lip pencil. Apply a coat of lipstick in a rich berry shade. Try Burberry Lip Velvet in Bright Poppy.
