SUM­MER LIPS

With clean, dewy skin, un­touched eyes and groomed, brushed-up brows, the only thing left to do to get that per­fect sum­mer look is add colour to the lips

Look 1

Orange is hardly new on the colour wheel, but it is in the spot­light this sum­mer, adding spice to a pared-down look. Tone is ev­ery­thing – pick a bright tan­ger­ine for full ef­fect. A matte tex­ture mod­ernises any shade and, for lip­stick longevity, line and fill the lips with a sim­i­lar colour liner.

Look 2

A bright pink does amaz­ing things for pale skin tones. When wear­ing such a state­ment colour, keep the rest of the face ab­so­lutely bare, with the ex­cep­tion of a slick of mas­cara and a dab of high­lighter along the cheek­bones. Don’t be afraid to find the per­fect shade by mix­ing dif­fer­ent pinks to­gether with a lip brush.

Look 3

Ev­ery sea­son red lips come out to play – and this sum­mer is no dif­fer­ent. Start by ap­ply­ing your cho­sen red to your lips from the mid­dle out. Next, de­fine them and in­crease longevity by us­ing the match­ing liner after the lip­stick. Ap­ply it around the edges of your lips, con­cen­trat­ing on your Cupid’s bow. Fi­nally, lightly press your lips to­gether to press in the colour and use an ear­bud to clean up any mis­takes.
