Plummy Red To Neutral Tone Red Lipsticks Are The New Beauty Trend On Oscars’ Redcarpet.

Red lipsticks are one of the most powerful beauty products in a woman’s life. Wear a neon orange red lipstick and see how your eyes will brighten up, or a true red lipstick and see how your mood changes for better, what about the plummy burgundy ones that gives you that vampy powerful look.

These are the pros of wearing red lipsticks. This new Spring Summer’21 beauty trend found its way to the 2021 Oscars red-carpet where celebrities like Celeste opted for a cherry red lipstick  which matched the overall tones of her attire, manicure and not forgetting the statement making heart clutch that finished the look.

The Covid-19 pandemic has locked most of us in, that we can’t wear our favourite red lipsticks and wearing our favourite masks has become the must-have beauty accessories. Well, lockdown and health crisis are making their way out of our lives now, we now usher in the red lipsticks. The colour shade trend was spotted on the Oscars’ red-carpet which range from deep berry reds, oxbloods and plum shades. The new drama is now on the lips while the eye-looks are kept minimal. Dramatic brows like feather brows but with depth and lick of mascara is what has been defined as what goes with the red dramatic lips.

Vanessa Kirby, who was wearing a velvety deep red lips with strong brow and little to no eye-makeup was spotted wearing this beauty trend, the beauty look on her was so beautiful that her alabaster skin and blue eyes were accentuated.
