The one rule we swear by when it comes to lip color is that there aren’t no rules! And no, we aren’t using that double negative for verbal prowess, we mean it. While there are no ground rules to picking a lipstick, knowing your basics can prevent many a faux pas. Especially for women who walk the boardrooms with as much panache as any other, it is important to strike a balanced look. We at BB hear you and dig out some lip colors to oomph up your office look.

Pastels and pearls
Spring is the best time to pull out those vintage frills and pastels that team well with rose and hot pink lip colors. While pastels can look too light and hot pink can scream too loud, together they make a balanced professional look. Add a splash of soft pink or berry to pep up this lovely, feminine office look.

We recommend: The Berry Pink from the Lakmé Absolute Lip Tints and Sorbet Tuesday, Candy Closure, Pink Powder, Pink Ambition from Lakmé’s 9 to 5 Matte lip color range can help pep-up this look!

We recommend: The brown tinted, Red Coat from Lakmé’s 9 to 5 matte range can fix your day look, the Rustic Red and Red Delight from Lakmé Absolute Crème Gloss range is perfect for a formal night.
