Hen Party Lipstick Trends


Pucker up! The lipstick trends to complete your hen party look!

Lipstick Fun

A really fun way of remembering your hen party with all your closest friends is to create a DIY kiss mark canvas! 

The above is a glamorous yet unique gift idea that you can give the bride-to-be on her hen night!

For some, lipstick is the ultimate accessory to add the finishing touches to any outfit and a hen party is the perfect opportunity to experiment. Here is some of the best lipstick colour trends so that you have the perfect pout all night.

The Classic Look

Let’s start with the classic. A red lip is the simplest, most fun and daring way to completely change an outfit and make you feel like a million dollars.

Getting the perfect red lip is not as easy as it seems; make sure to exfoliate your lips beforehand to rid of any dead cells. Then line and fill your lips with red lip liner, such as Nars Velvet Lip Liner in Nihiwatu, to give your lipstick a strong base to cling to. Get inspired by Dolce and Gabbana’s Spring Summer 2016 collection and try their Red 620 from the campaign. Or if you don’t want to be too matching when wearing all red, experiment with a lipstick in a slightly deeper shade, similar to how Kendall Jenner was styled for their runway, or Revlon’s Red Velvet. If you’re looking for impact on a budget try Rimmel London Provocalips in Kiss Me You Fool or Play With Fire for a deeper tone, with a matte top coat that keeps your lipstick lasting all night.

Shine Bright

If you’re looking for a bubblier, more feminine lip colour to complete your hen party look try a fun, bright pink.

Looking to the Diane von Fursteberg catwalk collections for inspiration, the bright lip has taken a more subtle turn; softer in edges and colour since the 2011 days of neon paint. Bright colours highlight an abundance of flaws, such as cracked and flaky lips, so prep with a lip moisturiser like Clinque’s Superbalm Lip Treament. To get a dewy, fresh faced pink lip like the one above try Maybelline’s Super Stay Lipstick in Perpetual Peony or Topshop’s Petal. Use a brush to apply the lipstick to give you a more even overall finish, and to leave you with softer edges for a more natural look.

This look is perfect for an afternoon tea hen party or even fun to contrast with an edgier evening hen party ensemble, such as leather, to keep the look fresh. If bright is what you’re looking for don’t be afraid of trying a coral lip either. Charolette Tilbury Matte Revlution’s Sexy Sienea gives a delicate pop of colour to the lips while Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick Vibrant Coral 110 packs more of a punch. Dust bronzer where the sun naturally hits your face for added warmth - perfect for a sunny hen party weekend away by the pool, and is great to take you from day to summer nights.

Nude You

A party look that always gets discarded due to its lack of wow is the nude lip.

The nude lip is not a lipstick to be underestimated and is a great card to play when teamed with a dark smoky eye or when you want your dramatic outfit to do the talking. If you’re feeling daring try a shade the same as your skin tone, such as Nars Satin Lipstick in Honolulu Honey for a stark contrast with a dark grey eye shadow and lashing of eyeliner and mascara. Or if you’re after a more natural look YSL’s Sweet Fig lipstick is a great natural shade to work with any look your choose. And don’t forget, a nude lipstick should always be in a hen’s weekend make up bag for breakfast the morning after!

Vamp The Night

In complete contrast to the nude lip if you really want to make a bold statement why not try a dark berry or purple lip...or go even darker with matte black lipstick?

An off black colour with a hint of red or purple hues is the best way to pull off this look and can be great for a vampy evening hen party look. Team with dark floral prints for an ethereal gothic look or why not pair your black lip with a red dress for a reversal on the classic red lip and little black dress? Par back you eye make up to just a slick of mascara to avoid looking too heavy. MAC’s Black Night lipstick gives a rich, strong colour, and if you’re worried about maintaining the look use Lipcoate Lip Sealer to seal your lipstick and stop it moving whilst you’re drinking your cocktails.

There’s a lipstick shade for everyone, every outfit and theme, and is the easiest, most fun way to change up an outfit. Whether you love a simple, sophisticated lip; experimenting with the most daring shades; or always wear a classic, seductive red, your choice of lipstick can really pull your whole look together and make for a killer hen party outfit.
