A Lorde-Inspired Lip Colour For Every Look

Lorde is known for her incredible voice, energetic dance moves and an awesome aesthetic of natural hair and matte lips. So don’t be Melodrama-tic, “do your makeup in somebody else’s car,” and pucker up for some of Lorde’s best lip looks for every occasion.


Concert: Red lip

Jam out at your next concert (maybe, Lorde’s upcoming Osheaga performance) in a bold red lip. Lorde glows hard in this red yellow shade and it’s a great pop of colour for your all-black ensemble.

Date Night: Nude lip

Our girl Lorde slays a nude lip. She wore this neutral tone for Coachella 2017’s second weekend—it’s subtle yet perfect for when you want to make your eyes to be the focus, especially on that first date!

Errands: Lipbalm

Keep your lippy look fresh and moisturized with something every girl should have in their bag, lipbalm. This is a chill Lorde-approved lip for going grocery shopping, walking through the burbs or going down to the tennis courts, you know, to “talk it up like yeah.”

Brunch: Light pink

Although it’s not the MET Gala, a light pink is the best hue for spring brunch on the patio. Drink up on the bottomless mimosas because this lippy is all about feeling fancy (since “we’ll never be royals”).

Wedding: Bright purple lip

This bright purple lip Lorde wore to the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards is groundbreaking for spring weddings. Dance the reception away in a fun lip that screams celebration.

The MMVAs: Dark plum lip

We’re sending the call out to attend this year’s iHeartRadio MMVAs in style. For Lorde’s first-ever MMVAs back in 2014, she sported the iconic deep purple lip. Rock this dark shade with bravado because not only is it “buzzcut season,” but awards season too.
