There’s nothing prettier than a bright bold lip at the start of spring. This season, pretty much anything goes. From matt, opaque and even gloss, it’s your choice and your style.
Remember to keep the rest of your look minimal as the focus is on your pout. As for the colour spectrum, think fire engine reds, bright fuchsias poppy shades and corals. If you really want to be on-trend, wear both sides of the spectrum and create an Ombre lip (petal lip). Apply your first colour to the outer corners of your mouth leaving the centre bit open, to which you’ll then apply your second shade of colour. Top tip: use a lip pencil first to stop the colour from bleeding.
