Plum Lipstick Trend


Plum, berry and burgundy lips have to be one of the coolest winter makeup trends right now.

Whether matt or gloss, such shades have been spotted on some of the hottest celebs this season including Amanda Seyfried who wore a plum lipstick at a recent awards gala.

Organic and natural makeup brands, such as Nvey Eco, Ere Perez and Bite Beauty, have a fabulous selection of lipsticks in these wintery shades so you can keep on trend, naturally.

To help decide which colour and finish to go for, see our guide:

Plum (or wine) – Tends to be a cool shade and looks great on cool tone white and black skin; as well as blondes.

Berry – Usually a deep red, neutral shade which suits most skin tones and colourings but is particularly flattering on Asian women and brunettes.

Burgundy – Contains more brown than plum or berry and is usually warm in tone. It looks great on warm and neutral skin tones and flattering on redheads.

Matt – Matt finishes are longer lasting than gloss and create a bold statement. Avoid matt lipstick if you have lines around the mouth as the colour can bleed.

Gloss – Gloss can provide a softer yet more glam look and is great for any age.

Top Tip

Use a matching natural or mineral lip liner to outline and fill in your lips, create shape and a base for your lippie or gloss. The liner will make the colour last longer.
