Sometimes fashion involves taking risks that not all women are willing to take. Some would always choose classic simplicity over an edgy outfit. And let’s face it, simplicity equals elegance and class. Of course, this also applies to lip color because there are some lip color trends that will never go out of fashion.

Timeless Lip Color Trends

A great makeup will always help define a classy outfit. And if you want to simply not go wrong, here are some classic lip color trends that will help you deal with any type of situation.

Classic Red Lips

Of course, red lips are a classic look. It became very popular in Hollywood’s Golden Age and since then, many women started adopting it.

Classic Red Lipstick Shades

Nowadays, red is very intense because the color pigments used by cosmetic companies are stronger and have evolved a lot.  You aren’t convinced just yet? Just watch Marion Cotillard at the BAFTA event, Rihanna at the Grammys or Hunger Games actress, Jennifer Lawrence, at the 2013 SAG Awards rocking a classic red lip trend.

Our choices: Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Red Carpet, Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge Lip Color in Narcotic Rouge or MAC Russian Red lipstick.

Pink Lipstick Trend

If you consider red too powerful for you, then choose a soft pink, it comes in so many different shades and it compliments your look. It will not make your lips pop, as red does, but it will be an important element of the whole ensemble because it will give your lips a subtle yet classy look.

Nude/Beige Lipsticks

Nude lips have been popular quite a few season’s now and they definitely deserve their spot among the classic lipstick tones. Make sure you pick a color that won’t wash you out and add a touch of clear gloss to the middle of the bottom lip for a nice plumping effect.
