Grey Hair Needs Bright Lips

I’m really liking this grey hair trend at the moment. Why wait until I’m going naturally grey when I can have it now? The question is, how does this work with non-elderly skin without making it look washed out?

The answer has been showcased by several celebrities – bold and bright lips! Mirina Diamandis wears her grey hair with bright orange or Barbie pink lips (two colours I love) and Lady Gaga wore hers with dark blue glitter lips which is clearly not for the faint-hearted.

I love bright lips so here are the colours I think will go best with grey hair:

Orange – opposites attract!

Illamasqua Flare & MAC Morange

Pastel blue – it’s only a few shades away from grey – take inspiration from Jourdan Dunn

Blue

Makeup Revolution Immoral

Pastel pink and purple – I can imagine a grey/pastel pink ombre for lips and hair!

Lilac

Barbie pink – because it’s fun.

Hot Pink – hot pink and grey is just, well, hot!

And of course, grey hair looks great with red lips which works for all ages. It will go with all of my shades of red because they are all so bright but I’ve picked out MUA shade 13 for a red crème and Rimmel Apocalips Lips Velvet in Burning Lava for a matte finish:

Will you be rocking grey hair with bright lips this summer?
