Statement pouts are oh so hot - and the perfect winter pick me up! From hot pink and blood orange to electric purple and danger red, it really doesn’t matter the colour as long as it can be seen from a distance.
Statement lips are perfect for winter - they liven up cosy outfits and brighten pale winter complexions. The most flattering shade for all complexions is a bright hot pink - just make sure it's not too deep - the key is to find a colour that POPS!
Unfortunately you can't just slap some bright lipstick on and go (ok, you can, but flaky lips and lipstick all over your teeth should be left to Courtney Love). It is a good idea to exfoliate your lips with a soft flannel or gentle exfoliant beforehand, and condition them well - dry lips and bright colours do not go well together.
Liner is a MUST - so a nude coloured lip-liner or clear is a great investment as it will work with all shades. It helps the lipstick stay in place and stops it from bleeding outside the natural line of the lips.
The team love the matte look, but if you are more of a juicy lips type of girl then a dollop of clear gloss in the centre of the bottom lip will look fab.
In terms of the rest of your face, keep in simple - a perfect base, a little bronzer, and some fat lashes is all you need.
