These colour-bursts are all about having a bit of fun, so choose a shade that says something about you! Are you Feeling Fizzy- flirty? Deep With Envy-dramatic? Or perhaps a Matte Royal-queen? Which ever you go for, make sure it reflects a part of your personality that you love to flaunt.

2. Know Your Skin Tone

Check the veins on the inside of your wrist- if they look blue, you have a cooler complexion. If they look green, you have a warmer complexion. Armed with this knowledge, you can venture into the world of bright lips more prepared. Cooler complexions are likely to suit shades with cooler undertones, including daring blues and greens! Those with warmer skin tones should veer towards pinks, yellows and oranges.

Also think about the ‘depth’ of your skin colour. If you are porcelain-light, perhaps stay away from dark berry shades, and consider whether lighter shades will wash you out. Those with darker skin may find the deeper browns aren’t dramatic enough for the look they are after.

Lastly, keep trying- these bold shades are about playing around and not taking things too seriously, so if at first you don’t find the perfect colour, experiment until you do.

3. Stay Hydrated…From Inside and Out

Matte lipsticks can be less forgiving than their glossy counterparts, and bright colours are more likely to highlight chapped, dry lips. Keep your water intake to the recommended eight glasses daily for pout-worthy lips, and a gentle exfoliation every few days will keep them silky soft.

4. Build Up To It

Some of us are confident enough to wear a bright new lip to a big event- with no practice needed. For others who tend to stick with a more minimal makeup look, a bold lip is a big deal! So build your confidence wearing these shades by starting slow and light. You can tone down your new shade by gently dabbing the colour over clear lip balm, and use your finger or a brush to blend on the lip. As you feel more confident rocking this new look, gradually move to a full daring colour.

5. Keep The Rest Simple

You’ve invested time and practice into your new look, so let it be the #instanticon it is, and keep the rest of your make up look simple. Steer away from overly dramatic eyes, and you’ll ensure everyone else’s eyes are on your selfie-worth lips.

6. Line It Up

Bold colours are a perfect time to break out the lip liner to ensure your colour stays under control. If you rarely use liner, set aside some time to practice achieving that perfect outline before stepping out for a big event.

7. Rock It!

Confidence is key to a bright lip. Choosing the correct colour for you, one that makes you feel SJP-confident, will help you feel amazing. Remember that makeup allows us to express ourselves and bold lips are just another way to show the world how fabulous we are!
