  • THE PICK-ME-UP: NARS Lipstick in Heat Wave

    Punchy, matte and bright, this is everything I look for in a lip color. It has a hint of orange, which lifts the face and feels young and vibrant, so the rest of your makeup can be minimal. I could easily wear this all weekend with just a light powder and a simple white shirt.


    THE DESK-TO-DINNER UPDATE:
    YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in 32 Spring Look

    A glossy pout may look chic but it can be high maintenance. This is a game changer: easy to apply and pure glamor for evening. The shine and color are a provocative mix, and the perfect complement to a flawless base.


    THE PROVOCATIVE POUT: Aerin Rose Balm in
    10 Wild Lilac

    Burgundy is a color I love on walls but approach with trepidation when it comes to wearing on my face, as it is very dramatic. The

    ALICE’S TOP LIP TIPS


    1

    Get your shade right: blue-toned hues work best for pale skin and oranges for darker skin.


    2

    The shinier the lipstick, the cleaner and more perfect your skin and base need to be.


    3

    Keep eye makeup simple when you have red lips, unless you want to look like a clown.

    Red is a great quick fix for night, but is equally glamorous with a sweater and pants for day.

    The best texture for me is matte; it is easy to apply and I find it more modern and youthful.


    sheer, natural texture of this balm is great for those wanting to dabble in the cool wine shade.


    THE JUST-BITTEN LIP: Burberry Make-up Lip Mist in Rosy Red No. 205

    With a natural, glossy sheen, this shade looks great on a summer’s day against a fresh complexion, providing a ‘just eaten berries’ look. My son remarked that I had

    “apple lips” when I wore this – the first time he has ever commented on my lips.


    THE SUMMER STATEMENT:

    Sunset Orange

    I first discovered this at 5am on a photoshoot in the desert outside Dubai. Makeup artist Zoe Taylor came out of her villa with the most perfect red lips I have ever seen. It is a beautifully matte, elegant red, while the pencil design makes it easy to apply and define your Cupid’s bow. It’s one of my favorites: it goes with anything, dressed up or down, and works particularly well against skin that has a natural, summery sheen.


    THE SKIN ENHANCER: Ilia Lip Conditioner in Bang Bang

    Earthy, natural and unscented, this lip conditioner is the perfect finish for when you want lips to look like they have a fresh yet deep color. It would look great with a hint of a suntan and freckles.
