Luckily for me, as a mad-about-matte-lips-lady, matte lipsticks in bright and punchy shades grazed SS13 catwalks everywhere from always OTT Prada to always understated Erdem.
Two of my favourite shades to create a summer-friendly pop of colour are from the genius that is Francois Nars in the form of the famous Semi Matte Lipstick; first up we have the perfect blue-toned pink Schiap and the orangey-red Heatwave which isn’t far from Mac’s Lady Danger but brighter in the orange department.
Draw your inspiration from the ever-gorgeous Miss Delevinge – keeping the visage naturally flawless and dewy, concentrate on simply contouring and highlighting your cheekbones, eyes and high points of your face for supermodel definition and of course – tidy up those brows but leave out any colour to allow the lips do the talking. Fresh yet dramatic perfection.
With a neat slick of lipliner and carefully applied matte pigment, these Nars lippies should see you through the hottest of summer nights.
