This season’s hottest lip trends can be found at Mecca Cosmetica’s beauty express workshops.





This season is all about bright pops of colour on the lips: think bold, bright, neon colours.

These are three tips to keep in mind when going for a bold lip colour:

#1: Keep everything else simple

#2: Use concealer for flawless skin

#3: Go for classic understated eyes. The focus should be on your gorgeous pout.


Hot colours this spring are tangerine oranges, hot pink and fuchsia. To intensify colour, line the lips with a pencil and swipe a similar coloured gloss over the lipstick, which also gives an irresistible shine. For perfect lips subtly round out your upper lip around the Cupid’s bow with a lip pencil for an iconic, heart-shaped pout.


To downplay bright punchy colours, use matte lipsticks, ensuring that lips are free from flaky skin. For a longer lasting product, place a single ply of tissue over your lips and sweep some translucent powder over the tissue to set the product with a truly matte finish.


Mecca recommends NARS Velvet Matte Lip pencil ($39). Try “Red Square” the tangerine orange colour or “Never Say Never”, a vibrant pink, Smashbox has also got fantastic bold shades in their new “Be Legendary” lips ($28.95). Their ultra-luxe formula offers saturated colour for long lasting wear, vitamins C and E to protect and a silky matte finish.




Popular shades from Smashbox include Fuchsia Flash and Electric Pink . For extra tricks on how to master the perfect lips, watch the Smashbox video tutorial.



Head into Mecca Cosmetica stores to discover your perfect lip shade for Spring. Be brave and go for something bold and daring!
