BEAUTY BAR: Mauve-lous

May 12th, 2016 at 2:05am

In case you haven’t stepped outside this year, liquid lipsticks are the go-to lip accessory taking over the makeup industry. They can come in any shade, but more often than not, they are mauve. Mauve is the number one most purchased lip color, and surprisingly enough, they can come in hundreds of shades. Supposing you’re out of the loop, mauve is a color between pink, red, brown and nude. Mauve is such a popular color in beauty right now because it looks good on any skin tone, and it can be dressed up or dressed down.

Mauve is truly the chameleon of lip colors. Mauve can be more red, more pink, more brown or even nude. It never clashes with anything, and if you get the right shade; it looks like you just have beautifully colored natural lips. Almost every makeup line is coming out with shades of mauve. Even Kylie Jenner has released her new collection: featuring mauve, mauve and more mauve.

This Fashionista pairs her neutral colored outfit with Kylie Jenner’s lip kit color ‘Posie K.’ This mauve is more on the pink spectrum, and looks #RAD with this Fashionista’s dark hair. While Kylie Jenner is making her statement with matte liquid lips, another company is testing Kylie’s limits. ColourPop is literally everyone’s new obsession, and if it isn’t, then please hop on the ColourPop train. Their most popular item is their matte liquid lipsticks, which are available in almost any color. These babies are priced at a whopping six dollars; you can’t beat that. The colors are very matte, and they stay on for an outrageous amount of time. My favorite mauve color from ColourPop is their Lumiere 2.

This Fashionista looks perfect in any mauve of the rainbow. Her dark long hair mixed with her light blue eyes makes any shade of mauve pop! She paired her luscious mauve lips with dark eye makeup and perfectly highlighted cheekbones. This sassy outfit features a trendy denim skirt by Kendall & Kylie’s newest collection at PacSun. Turtlenecks are all the rage this season. This Fashionista added some depth to turtlenecks everywhere by wearing a mock neck, black and white striped cropped sweater. They make your face pop, while allowing you to be super cozy. No matter the occasion, and no matter the outfit, mauve should be your go to color this season.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Dying to make a statement with your lips, but feeling a little clueless? Pair a neutral and soft smokey eye with one of my favorite ColourPop liquid lipsticks, Clueless. Clean up your lips with going around the corners with foundation, and always be careful to not over line your lips.
