It’s the latest statement shade worth copying
Balance bold lips with natural brows
“Ox blood looks especially amazing on paler complexions with just brushed-up brows and mascara,” says Lancôme National Makeup Director Lara Srokowski. Try Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge in Berry Noir.
Go soft for daytime
“Satin and cream lipsticks have lots of moisturising properties and are super comfortable, so they’re perfect to wear during the day,” explains Srokowski. Plus, they’re a happy medium between gloss and matte. Try Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Richer Raisin.
Try an all-matte approach
“Matte lipstick is my all-time favourite – it makes a bold statement and lasts all day,” says Srokowski. Pair with a velvety base and powder blush for a polished effect. On your lips, try Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Endangered Red.
