There is nothing quite like a pop of colour in the colder months to banish those winter blues. I love wearing a bright pink lip; it lifts my spirits and adds a bit of colour to my day.

Annabelle clearly takes after me when it comes to pink lipstick!

Here's our fail-proof guide on how to get the perfect pink lip:

  1. Apply a natural liner in a natural colour to define your pout, we love using the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Precision Glide Lipliner, $28.90 
  2. Fill the lips completely with the liner, this will give your lips a waxy texture so that your lipstick will grab onto it.
  3. Apply your lipstick with a lip brush, like Real Techniques Retractable Lip Brush, $13.98.
  4. Blot with a tissue if needed.

During the day I like using a matte lipstick and then putting on a slick of gloss for a sexy night-time look. It’s the easiest transition from the office to dinner with friends.

Keep the rest of your makeup fresh, clean and minimal, as you want your lips to steal the show. A flawless base and little bit of mascara and eyeliner are all you need.
