A pair of se­duc­tive plum lips is ir­re­sistibly kiss­able. Pull off a pur­ple pout with prac­tice and a healthy dose of con­fi­dence. A tip from pro­fes­sional make-up artists is to use lip liner af­ter rather than be­fore ap­ply­ing your lip­stick—it looks less harsh. Keep the rest of the face nat­u­ral to avoid the vamp look.

Poppy King, the founder of the Lip­stick Queen brand, has just launched three shades of pur­ple. “I was in­spired by the dark sen­su­al­ity within us all when cre­at­ing th­ese three beau­ti­ful takes on black-cherry lips,” she says. “They’re glam­orous, in­trigu­ing and yet with no hint of goth about them thanks to the warm black­berry tone of th­ese dark mid­night shades.”

“Ev­ery­one can wear bolder colours if they are pre­pared to make a state­ment,” says King, who de­scribes a pur­ple lip as se­duc­tive, dra­matic and in­tense. “If you’re feel­ing un­sure about it, try a sheer ver­sion first rather than full strength. Berry and plum tones tend to suit ev­ery­one and ev­ery­thing. A lip­stick colour that suits you will make your skin, eyes, hair, com­plex­ion and ev­ery­thing else look brighter and more alive.”
