Lipstick is that one beauty product that can totally transform your look and take it from drab to fab in a matter of seconds. While there are no rules to makeup, and you are free to do as you please, there are certain lip colours (oh, and MUAs agree too), look great on all mature women, and therefore are a must-have!

To make our case a little stronger, we’ve come with proof! Read ahead for a guide on the must-have lipstick shades for mature women, courtesy our very own B-Town beauties.

While nude lipstick suits people of all age groups, you need to make sure it has the right undertones or it’ll look flat on mature lips. To avoid this, take cues from Sushmita Sen and opt for a pink-based nude with a slightly glossy finish. This will give your lips a plump and youthful appearance.

Just like every woman needs a really nice, flattering true red lipstick, same is the case with pink. A fuchsia pink lipstick is a great way to perk up a plain Jane outfit and give it a nice feminine spin.

This may sound a little stereotypical, but brown or brick lipstick is another must-have colour. Wear it when you are not in the mood for your usual nude lipsticks for a muted glam look. A slightly darker brown looks incredible for an impromptu Friday night plan when paired with a little eyeliner and mascara. Either way, this lipstick colour is a sure-shot hit.
