How to create the perfect bold lips

What can we say? Bright and bold lips are here to stay! With just one swipe, you can transform your appearance from meh to stunning. Bright corals, pinks and strong nudes – read on for a step-by-step guide on how to create the perfect bright, statement lip.

Prepare your lips
Anytime is a great time to show off a bright lip, but of course, it all starts with healthy skin. Make sure your lips are soft and smooth before applying bright lip colour. Need a quick and easy tip? Gently buff your lips using a soft toothbrush to remove any dry, flaky skin. Apply a moisturizing lip balm then leave for 5-to-10 minutes to allow it to sink in. Now you’re ready to create a perfect pout!

Choose the right colour
Anyone can rock a bright, statement lip, but you need to choose the shades that work for you. The One Colour Stylist Super Pout lipstick in hot pink, fuchsia or maybe ruby red? Where do we even start? We love them all and the good news is that there’s an easy way to choose which colour that complement your skin tone.

Cool-toned lip colours tend to have more blue undertones and are suitable for people with cool-toned complexions. Warm-toned lip colours, such as those with more hints of yellow and orange, work well on those with warm-toned skin.

But don’t forget, the golden rule of gorgeous lips is to experiment and have fun. From dark plums to vibrant pinks, test-out many colours and go with the ones you instantly connect with.

Let your lips do the talking
A statement lip is always a sure-fire way to turn heads and has been a trusted beauty hack since the days of old-school Hollywood glam. But paring a strong lip look with a smokey eye can distract from your perfect pout. Most of the time, all that is needed is glowy skin, defined brows and lashings of mascara!
