Lipstick is always going to be on trend whether its a nude, a pop of colour or a gorgeous berry. For me the best way to brighten up your complexion is to wack on a lipstick it totally changes everything. If I am tired then I go for a bright lip, if I am working a smokey eye a nude lip or sometimes a dark lip just looks amazing.

In the Cosmo beauty editorial we focused on lips and kept skin dewy and just super fresh. There are literally so many shades to choose from depending on the occasion and skin tone. I am really a lover of Mac when it comes to lipsticks because they have so many shades and textures.

The bright orange lip is definitely a spring/summer shade perfect for day or night I am a massive fan of Mac Morange its def a go to colour for me plus I love the Tom Ford Wild Ginger.

A berry lip is great for winter or great for a night out there are so many variations of the berry from the more purple under tone to a more red undertone. Mac definitely have the berry shades down with Hang Up being a firm fav.cosmo beauty 3

A pink nude lipstick is great for the lighter complexions there are so many brands to choose from I am loving the nudes from the Rimmel Kate Moss collection and the new Smashbox Nude beach that will be coming our way In Feb/March.

Red lipstick is perfect to lift your complexion its def a go to for me if I am tired or on a night out with the girls. My fav’s are Mac Ruby Woo and Russian Red, Elizabeth Arden Red DoorRevlon Really Red and the list goes on. There are different shades depending on your skin tone some have a more orange under tone and some a blue undertone make sure you try it on before you buy. Medium to darker normally suit most but if you are paler you defin itely need to test out.cosmo beauty 4The purple lippies are definitely a big trend I am totally obsessed with the new shade from Smashbox Tabloid its just a perfect alternative to the usual bold shades. Watch this space this week on the new Smashbox lippies I will be posting about.

cosmo beauty 5Pink lipstick is another fav of mine you don’t always have to go as bold as a shade like Mac Candy Yum Yum you can go for a more raspberry pink or a candy pink check out the new L’Oreal La Vie En Rose collection for all the gorgeous pinksCosmo beauty 1I love Lilac lipsticks its definitely to pale for my skin tone but it looks amazing on paler complexions and just looks really cool. Its a harder shade to find but you can definitely find a the shade in the Mac SS16 Lip palette.

    I’ve just purchased the Mac Ruby Woo…but never worn red lipstick in my life. Still trying to psych myself up to wear it. lol. I struggle to believe any colour besides a nude gloss works with my skin tone.
