Beauty Inspiration: A Statement Lip

This season explore your darker side, think colours good enough to eat, even drink!

Paint your pout in plum or stain them in Bordeaux, no matter your preference it’s all about a lip that packs a punch and wouldn’t look out of place on a vampire slayer.

When wearing a bold lip shape is everything, all and any imperfections are noticeable, it’s about the right tools and the right canvas.

Always prep your lips with a scrub to avoid any unevenness, Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub, ($9.95) is a sweat smelling option or just grab some sugar and olive oil at home for an easy (and cheap) solution to dry lips.

Lip liner will work for you double time with this look, not only will it stop any colour from bleeding but think of it as a primer, lightly filling in your whole lip will ensure your lipstick lasts longer and any fading will look more like a stain until you’ve got time to reapply. Keep all other make-up minimal, a hint of mascara is all you’ll need to complete the look.

Check out some lip inspiration below.

    Looks great, but not sure if I can pull this off with my blonde hair and medium complexion.
