As a model and an actor, I over makeup is key to achieving a great character. From smoky winks to bright red or orange lips, it’s a simple way of adding drama and nature. So nude lips are perfect for when I am being myself.
The fundamental lipstick I tried was the Mac Cremesheen in Peach Blossom (£16.50). I love Mac lipsticks, and possess a lot of them, but this was slightly too pale for me: it made me look a bit lipless. With blond locks, though, I think it could be great.
I loved the look of Laura Geller’s Iconic Baked Sculpting lipstick in Tribeca Tan (£16, lookfantastic.com): it has accomplished packaging and is really sleek. The tone was a bit orangey for my taste, but the influence would be perfect if you wanted to look a bit 1960s; it would also be outstanding with red hair.
Pür’s Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Oh Bae (£16, hqhair.com) was a disclosure. I used to think that matte lipsticks were wonderful drying, but this wasn’t at all – my lips were really moisturised, and the flush is great for everyday use. It also has a lovely, sweet taste, which is clearly important; let’s admit it, we do eat our lipsticks, a bit.
My absolute favourite, though, was Too In opposition to grimaced La Crème lipstick in Naked Dolly (£18, toofaced.com). It was moisturising and abided all morning, plus the gold packaging is really glam. It’s the bring to perfection tone for me, and I will definitely be adding this to my makeup kit.
