8 Pictures That Would Convince You To Try Bold Lip Colours Now!

Written By:

Blue, oxblood and purple shades seem to be all the rage in terms of bold lip colours on the runway! But, a lot of people are really hesitant to try them out. And the hesitation is pretty normal, as we have all been conditioned into thinking that red and pink lips are attractive.

Remember the 90s, when brown was the trending lip shade? Dark matte browns, and even frosted browns used to be a big hit during that time. And sometimes, people ventured off to a really dark mocha shade to give off the Gothic vibe.

Well, they say trends do a full circle in history, which is to say that 90s trends are coming back into the limelight, but with a twist.

We really love how bold lipsticks can look on people if carried off well and with the right attitude and confidence!

So, take inspiration from these lovely ladies from all over the world and rock that trending bold lipstick look now.

Remember, confidence is your greatest accessory. Have true confidence and, trust us, nothing on this entire planet can ever stop you. There is definitely a bold lip colour out there to suit every skin tone.

3. Light Navy Blue:

Yes, blue is a really loud colour for a lipstick, so one doesn't really expect it to look subtle or soft. In that case, you could keep the rest of your face bare and minimal, like she has done here, to let your bold mouth do all the talking. Image courtesy: verdier_laure_(Instagram)
