TEST It’s officially spring, even if the weather doesn’t agree, and time to roll out those stunning, poster-paint brights as seen at the Spring/Summer 2011 fashion shows. If you’re still waiting for the sun to come out and give you that glowing tan, you might be worried that all of this neon could leave you looking a bit pale and washed out in comparison. The solution? Some equally bright lipstick to keep your make-up in tune with your outfit.
Bold, bright lipstick popped up time and again on the catwalks, where pink was the choice du- jour. Far from the natural, blushing pink of past seasons, this is Barbie gone haute-couture. Designers such as Diane Von Furstenberg and Marc by Marc Jacobs chose brilliant fuchsia as the ideal complement to their dazzling collections, whilst Fendi saw it as the perfect way to off-set their colorful, tinted shades. They key note to remember is to keep the look matte, not glossy, which gives it a fresh, modern, grown-up appeal.
Great high-street buys to get this look at home are L’Oreal’s Color Riche in Intense Fuchsia and Barry M’s Lip Paint in Pink Sparkle.
