Lippies are probably the most common makeup staple of women, plus they’re also the most versatile since you can basically use them on your cheeks and lids as well.
If you’re looking to update your stash, you may want to try these recommendations. What’s great is that many of the beauty trends for 2019 are pretty much applicable to your daily look, so not only are you going to up the sophistication a notch, you’ll also be timely and timeless:
Red will always be classy and classic—even the folks over at Harper’s Bazaar think so. It looks great on every woman and it immediately takes your look from zero to 110. If you’re in a rush, go for the red-lip-and-mascara combo and you're good to go.

Nudes and MLBBs
Nude lippies are said to still be huge in 2019, especially since the “My Lips But Better” movement has upgraded itself to “My Face But Better,” which is basically hugely about skincare (glass skin, anyone?) sporting minimal makeup that only aims to enhance your features. A nice, creamy nude lippie just few shades darker than your natural lip color can give a fresh finish without looking too pale.

With Living Coral being the Pantone Color of the Year for 2019, you’ll continue to see a lot of sunset-hued lippies in beauty counters.
Smudgy, just-kissed lips
Korean gradient and stained lips has been the trend for quite some time now, but Vogue is still loving the bright and blurred two-tone puckers that ruled the Spring 2019 runways (and we’re all for it, too)!
TRY: PeriPera Ink Velvet
FN Tip: Hoard this K-beauty cult favorite from December 21-23, 2018 as prices drop to P300 each in Club Clio boutiques in Trinoma, Festival Mall, Lucky China Town Mall, SM North EDSA, SM Fairview, and Cloverleaf!
The ‘90s gloss trend is very much alive and well according to Elle, and we’re here for it! Lip oils are a great moisturizing option for this, but if you want it glassy, go for tinted gloss!
