Wednesday December 4 2013.


I’m getting inspired this week by some celebrity faces, there are so many Christmas events coming up and it’s good to try something new.  The biggest event of winter so far lets turn our gaze to the British Fashion Awards beauty looks.  The key trend spotted on all the key players gracing the red carpet was a strong lip.  The most popular colour, well that would be the Christmas favourite red, all shades of red.  Leading the pack was Rita Ora showing old school Hollywood glamour.

Alexa Chung’s British Fashion Awards beauty look was a modern take on the classic red lip.  A fresher orangey red with minimal fuss, just get skin and lashings of mascara.

Demonstrating a vamped up version of the look, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.  Lips are matt and teamed with a kitten flick liquid liner for serious va va voom.

But there were some that veered from the scarlet pout brigade but were no less bold.  I loved Clemence’s purple pout, a winter fave of mine.

And Lily Donaldson plumped for pink.  Will you be wearing a bold lip for your wedding day?
