This season’s runway shows have been flooded with daring pops of colour and sparkles. The first step to pulling off the look like a pro is to tone down the rest of your makeup so that your mouth is the main focus.
Models at Fendi were proof that sparkly lipstick is the new way to shimmer this summer. Don’t want to go OTT glittery? TRY a shimmering gloss, like Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss in Fabulous Fuchsia (R39.99).
Gucci’s bright indigo lip is easy to emulate with a bold lippie, like Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Heroine (R230). For something more subtle, use a blue eye pencil, like Revlon Colour Stay Eyeliner in Sapphire (R179) combined with a clear gloss for extra shine. We love Clarins Gloss Prodige Intense Shine & Colour in Crystal (R290).
Mix and match your favourite lipsticks to mimic the pouts seen at Cushnie Et Ochs. Choose two colours of a similar palette, like pink and red. Go for Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Vinyl LipColor in Controversial and Shock (R345 each).
