Why Vivid Lip Color is the Makeup Trend of the Year

If it’s bold and bright, it’s probably in fashion in 2019. Vivid makeup colors are all over the runways and the red carpets, so now is the time to start playing with shades you might have considered to be off-limits in the past. Don’t shy away from glitter, metallic shades or mattes in hues designed to stop traffic. Go vivid with lip color this year, and get the popular look to make your style stand out.


Reds Are on Fire

The hot lip color for 2019 is any shade of red. From dark shades like oxblood to candy apple, red is in this year. Pat McGrath Luxetrance lipstick comes in a range of bright and bold red and pink shades that give lips a standout, eye-catching look. Don’t rule out glittery and glossy lip looks this year, but don’t ever think that matte red lipstick is old-fashioned. It may be classic, but it’s also trendy — and you can almost never go wrong with this look.

Purple is Perfection

Get bold with your lip color this year, or you’re going to be behind on the trend. Don’t be afraid to step out wearing purple shades of lipstick in hues of plum and violet. Shades of deep purple pair beautifully with many different eye and cheek colors, and they immediately make your mouth stand out.

Be Metallic

No matter which trends heat up and which cool down, metallic shades are always going to be in style. This year, they’re going to be all over lips. Glitter or shiny lipstick shades in gold, silver, copper and bronze are going to be all over mouths all year long, so get bold and add some gleam to your mouth. Glitter lips are already starting to dazzle on the runways. Get the look with M.A.C. Frost lipstick and Focallure Metallic Waterproof lip gloss. You can find both in bold metallic shades that will help you create this year’s popular look.

Orange You Glad It’s Trendy?

This year, make it a point to try bright orange lipstick. Deep, vivid shades of orange look amazing when paired with contrasting eye colors, and this color looks lovely on a wide range of complexions and skin tones. Get glossy orange lips with NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick, which is available in more than one shade of orange.

Paint It Black

Be extra in 2019 by creating extra drama with your lips. Black lips are suddenly in style, and you don’t even have to be into gothic fashion to enjoy wearing this eye-catching look. Black isn’t usually associated with bright, vivid colors, but it definitely stands out in any look when you’re wearing it on your lips. Make your mouth trendy this year with e.l.f. moisturizing lipstick or liquid matte lipstick. Both are available in black.

Make Them Look at Your Lips

Eye-catching lip looks are trendy in 2019, so get on board or get left behind. Try orange, red, glitter and gold, and try experimenting with shades that are going to make your lips stand out. Maybe you’re a slave to fashion, and who says that’s a bad thing?
