  • Coral Lipstick

    A good lipstick in our wardrobe is as versatile as a good white shirt. Although we usually favour reds, we do venture into coral hues when summer arrives. The key is to never go into the shimmer zone – it’s a bit Florida Keys granny, and not in a chic way. We would also tend to steer clear of anything pale to avoid it looking too retro; with this look it pays to go bold or go home.

    YSL Rouge Pur Couture Orange Electro£ 28

    This is more sheer than I would normally go for, and once on it looked more like a lip stain than a lipstick. However this actually made it easier to wear during the day, especially to more formal meetings (it was less fashiony), and it felt hydrating rather than drying. Still a bold pop of colour, but not too ‘in your face’.

    Rodin Lip Wardrobe Lipstick Tough Tomato£ 28

    We adore Linda Rodin’s eponymous lipstick range, and Tough Tomato doesn’t disappoint. It has a vibrant orange shade that is very flattering on and will enhance any hint of a tan. The finish isn’t quite matt, though, so I blotted it a tad for a less glossy effect.

    NARS Red Square Velvet Matte

    I discovered this shade after Jenna Lyons revealed it to be her favourite lipstick, and I am now addicted to it too. It’s a really good red-orange hue and I love the pencil applicator that gives me precise application all the time.

    Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Tell Laura£ 24

    I’m a huge fan of the entire Charlotte Tilbury make-up range, and her collection of lipsticks named after the celebrities she mixed unique colours for is amazing. Tell Laura was created for supermodel Laura Bailey, and I adore the geranium-red formula – it comes up super-matt, but in a very modern way, as it’s still supple and moisturising. Perfect all year round.
