4 Fierce Fashion Campaigns for Stellar Spring Lip Inspiration

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

Spring officially starts next week! Besides cleaning out my closet to make room for brighter hues and lighter fabrics, it’s time to reevaluate my beauty sitch. While I can never resist a red lip, this might be the perfect time to get adventurous and experiment with new hues. With that said, here’s a roundup of four additional spring campaigns that shine a light on perfect pouts.

Rouge: Okay, this one isn’t exactly “adventurous” as it’s still a red lip, but this story really wouldn’t be complete without a Cara Delevingne cameo. Polish fashion label, Reserved, was inspired by ’80s and ’90s beauty for this campaign, hence the Robert Palmer pucker. Make’s Silk Cream Lipstick and this handy how-to are all you need to channel the look.

Nude: In classic minimalist Kate Moss style, the supermodel rocks a nude lip for Italian denim label, Liu Jo. Instead of going ultra matte, there’s a hint of glossy peach involved to keep the look playful. To copy Kate, learn how to apply a nude like a pro here, then reach for Pixi’s Beauty Lip Blush in Purity.

Tinted: Okay, it’s not fair that Italian bombshell Bianca Balti has crazy-amazing lips to illustrate this example, but trust me when I say that a cherry stain on the lips looks great on virtually everyone. Shot by the one and only Mario Testino in Capri, Italy, Dolce & Gabbana’s latest ad for their Light Blue fragrance epitomizes spring’s fresh and effortlessly cool vibe. I’ll grab something like Clark’s Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Tint or Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Lip Protectant to nab this look.

Dark: Although the dark lip trend is certainly a fall favorite, I could see it working this season, too—especially on party nights. Brazilian babe Lais Ribeiro rocks it right for Tom Ford’s new Sahara Noir fragrance, which is available exclusively in the Middle East. Mimic this look by taking a crash course in the art of dark here and, if you’re ready to go for bold, give Beauty is Life’s Aubergine a spin.
