Red lipstick

This year, the focus is on darker shades of red than classic lippy shades: aubergine, cherry, crimson and copper, and at the other end of the colour spectrum, candy pink is also in.

Textures are swinging between ulta matte and super shiny. The only rule is whichever you go for, don't do it by halves! And make sure your application technique is up to scratch as these bold colours don't leave much room for error...
