Lately we’ve been seeing a few adventurous lipstick looks popping up on the red carpet and at VIP events. Model Teyana Taylor recently attended a birthday bash in New York wearing “Cookie Monster” blue lipstick, while actress Regina King attended a movie premiere in a Crayola-rich purple pout.
While some beauty lovers are just more brazen than the average Jane, we can’t help but wonder if intrepid lipstick colors are the next big trend. Will we be seeing green, yellow or even gray lips anytime soon?
Melissa Butler is the creator of one such out-of-the-box lipstick line, The Lip Bar, and says that this head-turning trend could be here to stay.
“Bold looks are sprouting up near and far, specifically in the wonderful world of lipstick, where bold is the new hot trend,” said Butler. “Touting a bright colored lip takes your look from zero to sexy in even the simplest garb as proven by Teyana’s undone bun, black tank and yes, blue lipstick. I’m so happy to see people stepping outside the color lines of lipstick!”
