Why They’re Favourites: “My favourite lip colours are deep plums and warm scarlets with a semi-matte texture. I'm loving the Sigma Power Crayon in Own It for a deep plum and Charlotte Tilbury's Revolution Matte Lipstick in Love Liberty for a warm scarlet. Both are my makeup-bag must-haves!”
The Makeup Artist: Lora Arellano
Why They're Favourites: “My favourite lip colour this season is 6six6 lipstick from Melt Cosmetics. It’s a deep burgundy ultra-matte lipstick. Paired with Urban Decay liner in Blackmail, you get a long-lasting matte finish that’s gorgeous to wear!”
Why They’re Favourites: “My favourite lip colour is fairly new; it's the Nars Killer Shine Lip Gloss in Provoke from the Nars/Steven Klein holiday collection. It's a deep berry purple that can dress up any outfit. Sometimes I pair it with MAC's Currant pencil to make it even vampier.”
The Makeup Artist: Heather Currie
Why They’re Favourites: “I love the Nars Charlotte lipstick colour—the texture is really nice. It stays on long, but it’s not drying. I’m also in love with a MAC’s Vamplify gloss. The colour is called Anything But Demure. It’s reminiscent of something I wore in the ’90s, but with a modern twist. It’s a long-lasting gloss that wears well.”
The Makeup Artist: Ricky Wilson
Why They’re Favourites: “I’m really feeling this combo because it's long wearing, bold, and looks good on light, medium, and darker skin tones. It’s Dior Lipliner Pencil in Thrilling Plum to define and feather with Nyx Cosmetics Soft Matte Cream Lipstick in Copenhagen. I like the Nyx lipstick because it's matte but doesn't dry the lips, which is common when working with so many bold colour products.”
Why They’re Favourites: “My favourite lip is a mix of Bruised Plum by Tom Ford Beauty as a base and a touch of Black Metal Dahlia by OCC in the center. Love the deep plum richness with a metallic pop.”
