Lipstick. When it comes to deciding between soft pink, bright magenta, statement red or something with a hint of shimmer, Lush Cosmetics' makeup artist Charlotte Howe says all you need to remember is one simple rule.
That being? Red is sultry, pink is flirty.
Short, simple, to the point. She does however, have a few more tips to share with us (hurrah!) on the kind of shade you should choose within the two shade families depending on your skin tone etc...
"To get the ultimate red lip, choose a blue-based red tone like Lush's Decisive (£14.50) as its going to lift any skintone and make the teeth appear whiter.
"A red lip can turn a dull day time look into something sexier instantly. Last minute date? Power (£14.50) is a coral red that will rock out.
"For the perfect pink lip, choose pretty pastels if you have a paler skin tone such as Charm (£14.50) or Glamorous (£14.50).
"But if you have a darker skin tone go for raspberry and hot pinks such as Passionate (£14.50) and Believe (£14.50). Pink is flirty but subtle."
Thanks Charlotte! Fancy a closer look at those Lush lip colours?
