We’re super psyched that frosted lipsticks are making a comeback. The ’90s staple was once the holy grail of lipsticks with top celebrities like ESSENCE Headliner Mariah Carey and Bad Boy favorite, Lil’ Kim and Jennifer Lopez pairing the staple with berry and brown lipliners. This summer, the frosted lip joins brown lipstick, lip gloss and glitter lids in the ranks of classics being made new again. Recently, we’ve seen everyone rock the trend from Danai Guriria and Uzo Aduba at the 2016 Tony Awards and now, R&B songstress, V. Bozeman.
If you haven’t been formerly introduced to the musical force that is V. Bozeman, you’re late to the party. The soulful songstress and Empire star is definitely a force to be reckoned with, and she’s got killer style too. The ebony skinned beauty was spotted at the 2016 BET Experience rocking her signature bald head and a gorgeous frosted coral lip, and if you’re like us, you’ll want to rock coral for the rest of the summer!
The trick to wearing lipstick the right way is all in the prep. Start by exfoliating your lips with a gentle exfoliating sugar scrub to smooth your lips like Fresh Sugar Lip Polish ($24, at sephora.com). Follow with a hydrating balm and before your apply your lipstick, wipe your lips clean with a damp cloth or your favorite facial wipe, them apply your frosted lip of choice. To copy V. Bozeman’s perfect summer coral, try Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Lip Color in Micavel ($35, at sephora.com) or Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Wildfire ($17, at sephora.com), both pictured above. Top your lashes with a volumizing mascara, add a little highlighter to your cheeks and you’ll be ready to slay the summer!
