Ever heard of the Lipstick Index? The term was coined by Leonard Lauder, former CEO of beauty company Estée Lauder. It refers to the increasing sales of cosmetics during the US recession in the early 2000s. The purchase of lipsticks in particular became a kind of general indicator of the status quo of the economic and, last but not least, social situation. A modified theory of this goes on to say that even in hard times, products like lipsticks continue to be bought. A small moment of luxury that gives comfort and confidence.
In the last two years, this theory of Lauder's has been thoroughly tested. Wearing face masks made the choice of lipstick obsolete, if you put on make-up at all, you tended to emphasize your eyes. With the largely relaxed measures regarding the obligation to wear a mask, however, the desire for made-up lips seems to be returning at the same time. In any case, this could hardly be overlooked in the collections for spring/summer 2022. In the following, we will show you the most beautiful lipstick colors for the summer season, which you can now happily wear again.
Radiant colors have a permanent place in our summer wardrobe - and they make it big every year when it comes to summer beauty. In particular, bright coral red like Giambattista Valli's is an all-time favorite, but many people don't dare to try it. There is no reason for this because the nuance flatters every complexion and looks super fresh and summery, especially when worn solo, i.e. without mascara.
The lips are supernatural with soft peach tones that conjure up just a hint of color on the lips. The trend color can be used in two ways: either on particularly hot summer days, when you often don't feel like putting on a lot of make-up, or to underline dramatic eye make-up looks. Either way, these lipstick shades are spot-on for this season.
Red lipstick plus a glossy finish is the ultimate trend combination for beautiful lips in summer 2022 - and the perfect kissable mouth. Add a bit of blush or bronzer, as well as beautifully brushed eyebrows and you have a simple summer beauty look that can be worn anywhere.
The special thing about the beautiful classic red lips is that they can be pretty much anything: from elegant and chic to cheeky and rocking. It is the perfect all-rounder, the must-have in every handbag, and the final touch in every look that needs that certain something. Even an outfit consisting of a white T-shirt and jeans can make the mouth with dark red make-up look incredibly classy in no time at all. The most beautiful nuance was seen at Saint Laurent.
