Bold Lips to Brighten Your Day

If ever I’m feeling a bit down in the dumps, wishing for warmer brighter days or simply wanting to pep up my makeup routine, I’ll always reach for a bright lip. Usually of the orange family too!

I think even if you can’t be bothered to do a full face and just whack on some mascara with a bright lip – for me personally, I get a good vibe from it and I’ll instantly be in a feel good mood.

So whether your pick me up colour’s red, orange, pink or purple – you can change this look for your personal favourite. I’d actually love to know what colour lipstick makes you feel ‘on’, so let me know in the comments!

  1. Wow! Love it, suits you really well. Mine is Russian red from Mac but I recently got a super purple one too which I can’t remember the name of. Colour always puts me in a better mood. Great post! Anna x (one half of the Cinnamon Buns and Roses blog)
