Achieve pouty perfection with this edit of the bold lipstick trends you should be trying

It’s time to go beyond the gloss to adopt a more purposeful pout. Bold lipstick is back in a big way and this is how you should be wearing it. 

Lend some colour to your look by adding a failsafe red lip, opt for ombré, or for a more understated look that still stands out, try your hand at blurred lipstick.

Return of Red 

Give your daily look a certain je ne sais quoi with classic red lipstick. Here, you can channel a low-maintenance French girl vibe with a shade of muted red and simple skin, or go full va-va-voom with a bold red guaranteed to turn heads. 

Ombré All Day 

The ombré look is achieved by applying a gradient of colour across the lips, starting with the darkest tones by the outer edges and cupid’s bow, and ending in the centre with a light, almost-translucent finish. All you need is a lip liner, two shades of lipstick and a gloss. It might take a bit of practice but the end result is worth it. 

Blurred Lines 

For a more understated lipstick look, try your hand at the blurred trend. Here, simply apply your colour to the inner parts of the lips and use your finger to smudge to the edges, resulting in
a blurry, ethereal effect with no defined lines. This look is simple, soft and super feminine.
