I can’t tell you how many makeup artists have told me lipstick would be their “desert island” beauty product pick. Before I began my career, I was a mascara diehard. Now, not so much. I’ve learnt how to balance the look. I mean just look at the late Caroline flack in this image below, doesn’t she just look spectacular? Truly missed.
Never underestimate the power of a bold lipstick
Turns out a lipstick, especially something bold can also be dotted onto the apples of cheeks and the lids of eyes for a monochromatic look you can pull together in two seconds flat. We regularly do this with whatever lipstick I have on hand. We love a hot magenta or coral in the summer; a classic red in the winter.
If you’re a bit gun-shy at the idea of a one-colour-fits-all look, try a lipstick close to your lip colour for a neutral effect. My go-to is Tom Ford Lips & Boys in most stores nationwide.
