When it comes to beauty trends, we often turn to the runway for inspiration.
Right now, we’re loving sleek ponytails as seen at Charlotte Ronson and bright lips as seen at Thakoon. But the biggest beauty trend we’re currently obsessed with is matching our lipstick to our nail polish, a trend we saw on the runways at Giorgio Armani, Donna Karan and Jean Paul Gaultier, to name just a few.
How To Match Your Lipstick & Nail Lacquer Flawlessly
Butter LONDON. We love everything butter LONDON so it’s no surprise that we swooned when the polish pros plunged into the world of lip gloss, brilliantly no less, with their new Lippy collection designed to perfectly pair with their iconic nail polishes. The lip gloss/lipstick hybrid goes on smooth like a gloss but is highly pigmented like lipstick and lasts forever. Try Butter LONDON Lippy in Trout Pout ($17), a creamy peach color and match it with their classic nail lacquer of the same name ($14) for sweet summer style sure to satisfy.
Le Metier de Beaute. Neiman Marcus fashion director, Ken Downing, has also jumped on the lip/nail duo with his collaboration with Le Metier de Beaute. As Downing said, “The fall runways were filled with a return to polished sophistication and elegance. The message: ‘Lady Chic.’ Color is paramount!” Get the look with Le Metier de Beaute Twin Set in Bodacious Bordeaux ($24) a rich, wearable wine color for those times when a true red lip is too much.
‘Tini Beauty Lounge. We like to compare the perfect mix of makeup to mixing a cocktail. It’s all about mixing and matching until you find the perfect combination. The folks over at ‘Tini Beauty Lounge feel the same way, and they want to make it easier for you to be your own mixologist. Their Double Fisted Mini Bar Sets ($28.50) include everything you need to test out this look. With a matching nail lacquer and lipstick as well as a top coat and gloss, you’re good to go! You’ll be on trend in no time.
