Florals are to spring fashion as frosty palettes are to spring makeup. Or at least that’s what the analytics team at Pinterest is telling us. According to the website, cool-toned beauty products are on the rise this season, with a surprising lip trend taking the lead: blue lipstick. The statement-making shade reminiscent of ’90s pop stars is trending up 50% in the U.S., says our Pinterest contact Amanda Switzer. And while blue hues are in style for spring, Switzer says so too are neutral shades of makeup—the perfect pairing, no?
While we’ve dabbled with blue makeup on occasion (we love a navy liner moment), we have yet to try the cool-toned color on our lips. To figure out just how to navigate the arena of blue lipstick, we scrolled through Pinterest for some inspiration. For the must-see blue beauty looks on Pinterest, keep scrolling.
Try a blue lip on for size with a deep-navy shade like Urban Decay's Vice Lipstick in Heroine ($17).
