Lipstick makeup trends 2015
Lips don’t require too many words, I think it better to provide groups of images that demonstrates lipstick as part of an ensemble of the trends highlighted in earlier articles.
Lips are definitely darker, berry fruits of the forest and sultry sexy for a pout with clout or going with “natural”, “minimal” and “real” makeup looks, lipstick must compliment the au-natural-statement with a range of warmer neutral colour tones darker than base or skin colour with natural looking beiges, pinks and softer red lipsticks.
Because we need a few more words on lipstick, I thought it might be interesting to briefly describe 7000 years of lippy-history at the end of this article.
Pursual of the perfect pout has preoccupied women for millennia. Pre-history is not 100% clear on anything, but women and men have decorated and painted their lips from around 5000 years before christ. That’s a long time. Egyptian men and women poisoned themselves looking for the perfect pout. A Muslim doctor who lived in Spain during the 10C created the first range of moulded oily lipsticks to treat lip problems. He also created a perfumed variety to make the ancient mouth smell a little more attractive.
Lipsticks were back in the 1600s when Great Britain’s Lizzie I, betrayed by a man she loved, became one of the world’s first and most feared feminists. Everyone must remember that scene from Elizabeth when Kate Blanchet desexes herself, cutting her hair back, painting her face white and rouging her lips. Her ‘virginity’ crowned with a copper wig.
Of course, Kate was still beautiful even when desexed. Let’s have a look at a painting that we must assume shows Elizabeth I at her best – ouch!
