Let’s catch up on lipstick trends from every decade, shall we? Lipstick deserves it, coz women are not just pretty, they’re pretty powerful. And lipstick has been adding “power” to our “pretty” for decades now. The 20s and 30s eras didn’t have the word “trending lipstick shades” in their dictionary, or Instagram to tell them which lipstick shades were going “viral” or were IN. But there were still specific lipstick trends in all those eras.
We have curated lipstick trends from each decade from 1920s till early 2000s, and it’s as much of a fun read as it is something to save & try, coz boy, are these lipstick trends hip even for today! And anyway, since everything is coming back from the golden era, why not try those trending lipstick shades from back then?
