I love nothing more than a statement lip, my staple is a scarlet red; this season I’ll be adding a number of other colours to my repertoire.
Take a bit of neon to your face with a bold pink lip a la Giles SS13; if you’re not feeling that brave go for a slightly darker hue a la Dries Van Noten SS13

Turn up the heat with a tangerine lip a la Moschino (centre); if you don’t want to go too zesty opt for a reddy orange a la Paul Smith (on the right); and if you want to be a bit more creative add a pop of orange to the centre of a hot pink lip a la Holly Fulton.

Go over to the dark side for the summer and make your lips dark with a deep grape colour a la Jason Wu and Jonathan Saunders. You know what they say, “the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice”!

The ever faithful red never goes out of fashion, it’s a classic all year round. Wear with a fresh face for the summer and if you want to add a little somethin’ somthin’ add some weight to your brows and line your cupid’s bow with a white pencil a la Prada (middle); or keep it simple like the Burberry and Rochas looks.
Which colour will you be poppin’ this summer?
