Since lips have made such a statement this year so far, we had to write about lip trends on the runway. Here are some of the final looks that made our cut from NYFW.
It’s no secret that antioxidants are incredibly beautifying and super healthy–not only do they prevent oxidation of molecules including collagen (slowing down the aging process), but they also protect against heart disease, cancer, and reduce blood pressure. We love antioxidants so much we had to make a list of foods that have the highest amounts of these miracle molecules:
Deliciously provocative, berries are full of fiber, minerals, and vitamins that delay the onset of age-related loss of cognitive function. Who knew–berries keep you sharp!
Healthy Tips: Add berries into vanilla yogurt with honey and granola for a healthy snack.
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene that help prevent lung, colon and breast cancers. Bring on the salads!
Healthy Tip: Add Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, and olive oil with pasta.
Broccoli is known for it’s compound indole-3-carbinol, an antioxidant that breaks down estrogen and reduces the risk of breast cancer. The beta-carotene found in broccoli also helps protect against cancer and heart disease. Broccoli and cheese anyone?
Healthy Tip: Steam broccoli and season with olive oil. Add chopped black olives and dash with red pepper flakes.
Resveratrol and quercetin are anitoxidants in red grapes that help veins stay open and flexible. Resveratrol also protects against gastric ulcers, cancer, stroke and even osteoporosis.
Healthy Tip: Freeze grapes for a summer treat that is as sweet as it is healthy.
Studies prove, that tea significantly reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Although green tea has been said to have more antioxidants as black tea, recent observations suggest that both are equally beneficial. You may want to make your next coffee date, a tea date!
Healthy Tips: Try using green tea to boil soba noodles in. Season to taste, voila!

When celebs like Lady GaGa, Rihanna, and Kim Kardashian all wear a certain something, we have to wonder is this a trend? If you are inquiring about lavender lips, we would say yes! Lavender lips have been seen all over the red carpet, celeb bashes and galas so much that we needed to gush, we are crushing lavender!
DIANE VON FURSTENBERG: started piling on in layers black then a blue that turns green on the bottom lid, then a blue/purple on the top inner lid, then some multicolored sparkles in the inner corner. Lips were pale, worn with a contoured cheek.
