Even though the restrained, maximally natural look will remain one of the hottest trends in 2023, that doesn’t mean that everything has to be dispensed with – after all, natural doesn’t mean being naked! However, it depends on the right amount and textures that are optimally tailored to the skin type, which then merge with the skin as if invisibly and as such are not really visible, but rather subtly emphasize the natural beauty. In addition to moisturizing serums and light-reflecting foundations that cover the face with that desirable, youthful glow as if you had just walked through dewy May meadows, delicate lipsticks and lip balms tinted in natural shades are considered the make-up essential of the moment. The most important care steps and make-up tricks for a natural look with Natural Lips are listed below.
MAKE-UP TREND 2023: HOW TO SUCCESS NATURAL LIPS IN FOUR STEPS AND TWO VARIANTS
THE RIGHT PREPARATION: PEELING AND CARE
Regardless of whether a colored lipstick (e.g. in bright red or pink) is applied or the lips are only subtly emphasized as natural lips, the prerequisite for beautiful lips is optimal preparation and care. Loose skin flags and dry lines disappear after a special, nourishing peeling; Deep-acting care fluids, glosses and balms that are specially tailored to the needs of sensitive lip skin smooth the surface and ensure noticeably more suppleness.
VARIATION 1: NATURAL LIPS IN CREAMY BEIGE AND BROWN TONES
Anyone who wants a lip look in creamy beige and brown tones like Zimmermann’s can watch the right make-up trick from the professionals backstage: Neither lipstick nor gloss was used here – the surprising key piece of the natural lip look was lip liner light brown and rosewood nuances. Gently apply to the model’s lips from the outside in, leaving the center of the lips exposed. Then gently blend the color with the fingertip towards the lip surface and finally dab on a transparent balm.
VARIATION 2: NATURAL LIPS IN SUPER SOFT SORBET SHADES
A second variant are natural lips in very light sorbet tones, which are hardly recognizable as such, but immediately make the whole look look more radiant and rosy. Or as Victoria Beckham would put it: as if you had gently bitten your lip and pinched your cheeks to look fresher!
For natural lips with a super soft sorbet glow, dab a transparent but fruity tinted lip gloss, lip balm or face balm onto the center of the lips, but avoid the lip contours and corners. Then spread the texture outwards with the fingertip or a lip brush and dab the lips with a transparent gloss or balm. Add a little of the tinted balm to your cheeks.
THE FINISH: A TRANSPARENT BALM ON TOP
Whether directly after the peeling or as a finish to Natural Lips in light brown or sorbet tones, a transparent care balm that is dabbed over the lips on top ensures ultimate suppleness and a maximum natural, youthful look. It’s available with or without anti-aging extras, as a classic stick, in a tube or in a jar – and shouldn’t be missing in any handbag (now at the latest).
