Per­fect pale lips Plus, Gemma Cair­ney

The Observer Magazine - - News - Words EVA WISE­MAN

Here is a look that is de­cep­tively dif­fi­cult. A gen­tle pop of pale pink, it should be the sim­plest of things, like a sub­tle sweep of blusher or a del­i­cate French man­i­cure. But it re­quires at least a week of lip balm. Cracked, dry lips are re­vealed as mon­strous un­der girl­ish pink, so prep­ping is es­sen­tial. And then, time must be taken to test the tones against your skin, to gauge how dra­matic you’re will­ing to go. The paler the trick­ier, but also, the most sat­is­fy­ing.
