Fashion Trends 2012

So, It looks like Lipstick has got an upgrade! with temporary tattoo lips.

We have all read about permanent makeup- which is ultimately, makeup; that usually, isn’t really ,THAT permanent, BUT lasts a few weeks or months- individual eye lashes for example tend to last 2-3 weeks if you are lucky and don’t wash your face or touch your eyes!

Whilst eyebrow tattoo kits can last up to three months or real permanent eyebrows can last – well permanently!

But now, at long last the lipstick has got its permanent partner and this is found in the new craze that has seemed to have swept the American nation…not so much British just yet but we thought we would get in first to tell you about it!

Violet Lips call it “Temporary Lip Appliqués” which is basically temporary lip applications.

They sell them in packs of three- so thats three dramatic lip tattoos that can supposedly last 8 hours, which is longer than any normal lipstick or gloss.

The pack retails on their website from $9.99 and upwards depending on the style you want.

It has a similar concept to the Minx nail applications which you cut, wet and stick on for dramatic designs which cannot really be done free hand.

Jessie J, is one of the most popular artists that have worn the union jack lip application- in this particular picture it has been retouched so it gives the effect of dripping but she also wore the similar pack to the set whilst she was performing her song.

More recently Kendall Kardashian must have got the stickons sent to her through the post for a bit of “FREE” advertising aka ‘plugging’- she tweeted a picture of her in the stickons looking very pretty as usual.

She commented on the picture “Just tried these super cool purple leopard lips I got them from Violentlips tattoos. Love them!

I’m sure she also loved the cheque that came through as well!

Can’t blame the princess..

Her sister also got a pair for the twitter pages as well as Vanessa from the Saturdays.

VANESSA WHITE SATURDAY'S LIPSTICK

VIOLET LIPs seem to be everywhere and its like one big hidden secret – so for a semi permanent lip colour try out these exciting stick ons!

This Saturday marked the charity social event of week with Hollywood’s finest teetering down to sip champagne and watch the polo for the annual Veuve Clicquot polo held at the Will Rogers State Historic Park.

Of course the usual celebs were pouting and ready to be photographed whilst they pretend to understand the rules of polo! One actress Zoe Saldana, caught my eye in her Jason Wu dress from the spring summer 2012 ready to wear collection.

She paired the black and white dress with Brian Atwood Zenith Platform Pumps which we thought was a ‘different’ combination but it worked!

The Shoes are simple elegant and patent style and are a cool beige/nude colour which really complimented her skin tone and gives her calves lovely definition.

The Dress by Jason Wu is a superb design and it is this I want to focus on for the upcoming trends of 2012.

An asymmetrical line to a skirt really is a dramatic feature to any outfit- and just as much as we liked it, Jason Wu used it,  it can be seen prominently throughout his latest collection from large lines of asymmetry to shorter less noticeable coy lines. It is a great collection..

This bold lime green dress featured below is a lovely statement of colour with the added mini peek in the front of the dress which gives envious onlookers a clear view of the shoes (which must be the perfect set of heels!)

A simple black bow enables the lower half of the dress to become the feature and focus and makes this our favourite in the collection.

The way the dress flows behind the wearer is always a lovely to see as you walk away practically bellowing in the wind! The only part that would be missing would be dramatic background music for a really over the top exit.

We Love it!

One of the best features about a asymmetrical skirt is that it is a great way to show a bit of skin and still be chic and classy, so a short skirt designed with a long tail can come across as more demur which is a great way to mix the two looks of party girl and reserved.

Jason has really gone for strong stiking colours in this Spring Summer 2012 collection and I think thats what summer should be all about!

Hot tip for summer 2012 – Vibrant colours and Asymmetrical skirts.
