As you have probably noticed colourful lips are massive this season. Designers who went for colourful clothes also chose colourful make up to go with it. It could be a clever way of fighting the economy crisis that's giving us so much trouble.. Colours are fun and to wear them cheers you up and can make your day happy and light.

First on the list is Jil Sander who went for a bright fluo matt pink. I was part of Peter Philips team for the fashion show and I promise that that lipstick was full on colour.

To recreate this look leave the skin quite bare but make sure you even it out with a light foundation or tinted moisturizer, once that's done the colour will pop out beautifully. The lipstick is matt, you can find this shade at NARS, LORD & BERRY, YSL.

Fendi went for three killer colours: orange, fuchsia and coral, seriously mat.

Again with Peter P. we did immaculate base but this time we eyelined the bottom rim of the eyes with a soft brown and enhanced the inside with a beige lipliner. Couple of coats of mascara to follow.For the lip colours you can find the same shades at LORD & BERRY they have fab fuchsia and orange, also REVLON has excellent choices. For the coral red you can find amazing variety at DOLCE & GABBANA MAKE UP or BOURJOIS.

The look at Gucci was sleeker by giving layers of glassy gloss on top of lipstick.
Any transparent gloss dabbed onto the lipstick will do the job or Elizabeth Arden 8 hours cream.

At Marc by Marc Jacobs the bright orange and coral lipstick is paired up with rosey cheeks which makes the look very fresh and Lolita like.

To replicate it on the lips you can use the Convertible colours by STILA  and on the cheeks the Watercolour by DANIEL SANDLER in Cherub is just perfect.

Instead at Givenchi is DRAMA. Deep cherry lips and soft beigy eyes gives the look a certain sofistication.Bleached eyebrows for modern and dewy skin for freshness.
