HOW DO YOU FIND YOUR ‘SIGNATURE’ LIP SHADE?
To find your perfect shade decide first on your overall look and outfit. Next match your lipstick with your mood - are you feeling bold, seductive or powerful? Finally, match the shade to your complexion and eye colour.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO APPLY LIPSTICK?
Step 1: Prep
- The key to youthful, soft and supple lips is all in the prep. Begin by applying Lip Magic to the entire lips; it’s the perfect base for any lipstick. To accentuate the fullness and shape of the lips, highlight the Cupid’s bow. Apply a small amount of the ‘Highlight’ shade from my *Filmstar Bronze and Glow palette ($97) using the Eye Smudger Brush ($48).
Step 2: Lip liner
- A seamless, undetectable lip line can reshape and resize your lips. It also acts a stencil for your lipstick. Outline your lips using the *Lip Cheat ($35), starting with the corner of the top lip. Simply trace the outer edge of your natural lip line.
Step 3: Lipstick
- Now fill in your stencil. Apply your chosen shade straight from the bullet, or for more precision around the corners of the lips use a lip brush.
IS THERE ONE COLOUR THAT IS UNIVERSALLY FLATTERING ON EVERYONE?
There are so many shades that I love and there are so many that are flattering depending on your skin tone, seasonal complexion and eye colour. However, if I have to choose, I would say my Penelope Pink K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick ($48) - which is the perfect nude pink - it’s flattering on everyone.
WHICH SHADE IS YOUR PERSONAL FAVOURITE IN THE NEW LINE?
I love them all, of course, but probably one of the more versatile shades is Super Cindy ($48). A timeless beauty icon, Cindy Crawford is the queen of sophistication and this taupey nude shade - which embodies Cindy’s fresh faced American beauty - makes lips look instantly fuller and irresistible.
