All of us have those days when red lipstick feels too overpowering and nude lipstick feels just too boring. So, what’s a girl to do then? Reach for a pretty pink lip colour, what else! A pink lipstick adds the perfect amount of drama without hogging attention from the outfit. Invest in a pretty fuchsia colour and see magic unfold.

We recommend: Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color - Pink Heels and Elle 18 Go Matte Lip Crayons - 05 Fuchsia Burst.

 

03. A nude MLBB lipstick – for want to look poised and sophisticated

There are some days when we really want to just chill and play it down, and the same goes for our lipsticks too. This is when you need a pretty MLBB (my lips but better) shade in your vanity. It gives your lips a nice wash of colour, minus the drama and OTTness.

We recommend: Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color - 301 Morning Coffee and Lakmé Forever Matte Liquid Lip Colour - Nude Dream.

 

04. A plum or berry – for when you feel daring
