The key to a perfect pout is well-nourished lips in tip top condition. With the right lip colour, you can upgrade your look in seconds; from subtle stains to high-impact pigments, we’ve got just the shade to make the transition from desk to dance-floor a breeze. And don't forget a lip liner such as Charlotte Tilbury's wonderful Lip Cheat to ensure a crisp outline and prevent colour bleed. Ensure lips are moisturised before picking your weapon of choice – a good tip is to gently exfoliate with a soft-bristled toothbrush, then slather your buffed lips with balm before bed. After all, every great artwork begins with a perfectly prepped canvas.
