Lipstick is likely to be the only type of make-up you’d wear alone when you don’t have the time or desire to apply anything else. It’s interesting to see what message you’re sending when you’re rocking your favourite shade…

Nude: Simplicity is indeed the ultimate sophistication. For the down-to-earth lady who likes to keep things classic, wearing nude tones reveal her as warm and caring.

Pink: This is often seen as a softer version of red, mostly worn by younger women and lovers of all things pink! Pretty pink hues show off your sweet, fun-loving and soft-natured side.

Red: The word screams “hot” and “sexy”. Women who wear this shade are often seen as daring, bold and sensuous. There’s nothing more powerful than a woman with the confidence to rock a red lip.

Purple or mauve hues: Women who wear these colours are seen as independent, edgy and sexy. They have an air of confidence and like to stand out from the crowd.

Darker shades: Dark shades are no longer uncommon and the women who wear them have an aura of mystery that surrounds them. They’re different and usual, revelling in their uniqueness.
