6 Hair and Makeup Statement Looks for 2013
A bold red lip and ombré hair color were huge last year. What's poised to become the hottest trend for 2013?
Lavender lipsSpring is always a great time to try a bright lip, and there will be plenty of women wearing corals and pinks, says MAC Cosmetics Senior Artist Christopher Del Castillo. But he suggests going a slightly different route and trying a lavender lip.
"Lavender in general, on eyes and lips, can be worn by anyone, even on women with skin tones who wouldn't normally use it," he says. "It's sort of one of those overlooked colors when it comes to neutrals."
If you have fairer skin, Del Castillo suggests starting with a neutral lipliner (close to your natural lip shade) and then layering a lavender lipstick on top, like MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick, $15. "It makes it look a littler cooler -- more plum-like and wearable," he says.
If you have a darker skin tone, start with a magenta or plum lipliner before applying lavender lipstick for a bolder look, Del Castillo says.
