After the summer we thought would never end, Autumn has finally made an appearance. Time to put some pep in your step with a plump, punchy pop-lipped pout. Here's my pick of the top colours to look for. The best bit? Bright lips don't need as much makeup on the rest of the face so you can look 'put together' in half the time. Pair your pucker with a bb cream, mascara, soft brows and a touch of blush for pure polished perfection.

Orangeade
Orange is the new red- try a lighter, brighter shade for the day or a deep orange for night- this is power dressing for your face.

Pink Perfection
Pink is no longer the domain of the innocent princess pout. New season pinks pack a punch with matte, high pigment shades that won’t run out on you.

Grey Days
Grey lipstick. It’s a thing. I know it sounds crazy but hear me out- this actually looks amazing with a charcoal outfit, sleek hair, and a decent dose of ‘fashionista flair’. Ok, so maybe it’s not a long term trend, but it’s definitely on my list once the weather gets chilly.

Purple Puckers
The strongest trend in lips right now is purple- and I mean dark-burgundy-almost goth purple, not light-shimmer-2002-lipgloss purple. It’s chic, it’s striking, and it will make your skin look super creamy. Turned heads guaranteed.

Red Alert
Last but definitely not least is a show stopping red. Every skin colour can wear what’s known as a ‘true red’ – this means it is a perfect balance of cool and warm, not too orange, not too plummy. Bonus points: it makes your teeth look whiter, too.
