Hot colours this year are in the pinks and deep plums. Add a frost or pearl in a lighter colour for variety. The wonderful thing about lipstick is the option to pick a couple of colours to be your statement colours, if that is your style. Or go with a broader choice if you prefer variety.
As a professional makeup artist here are my tips to keep you current:
- For the bold lip, keep the rest of makeup neutral and simple.
- For a light frost or pearl, add some drama to the eye.
- The focus should be lips or eyes not both.
Look after your lipstick and store in a dark cool place. Preferably not the bathroom.
