Summer calls for sunnies, so there’s little point spending hours perfecting your cat eye. A great lipstick is as transformative as it is strangely uplifting and the only thing anyone will see so you may as well pick a goody.
My go to brands are Topshop (because they’re a bargain), Tom Ford (because they’re really hydrating and Tom Ford) and Chanel; what can I say I’m a sucker for packaging. But in truth of all I’ve tried I find these three to be the best. All 3 are hydrating, highly pigmented and in colours you actually want to wear. I could upload lots of pics of myself trying them on but it’s not really my style, and as we’re all different skin tones, it seemed more fun to copy my mum and blot.
