Bright, neon-coloured lips were a ubiquitous presence on the runways of DKNY and Prabal Gurung’s Spring/Summer 2014 shows, alongside saturated streaks splashed across this season’s arrivals from Dior, Prada and Celine.
And if you’re wondering if the look works outside fashion shows, yes, we’ve tried it and it does. Sporting a bright lip does wonders to your face. Not only does it make you look well put together, it also perks up your complexion instantly. You can work the beauty trend by keeping the rest of your face bare yet polished, with a single flick of black liner peeking from the side of your peepers. For that perfect pout, remember to line and fill in your puckers with a lip liner of a similar shade, followed by your choice of colour.
