We all have at least a dozen lipsticks lying around but for some reason always seem to favour a single shade. We’re all for having a signature look, but sometimes it’s fun to shake things up with a bit of experimentation. We give you a fun guide of different lip colours to rock on every day of the week. Follow it to ring in your work week in style!
Getting out of bed on a Monday morning is a task in itself. Just because your mood is dark doesn’t mean your lips have to be. A zesty shade of coral is perfect to bring a bounce to your step and an extra sway to your hips. Plus, no one has the time to apply a full face of makeup on a Monday morning, your vibrant pucker is enough to brighten up your face and your regular work wardrobe.

You’re gaining a bit of momentum when it comes to taking on the rest of the week. Whether you have an important meeting or an early dinner with your boyfriend’s parents, a pretty nude lippie is perfect for just about any occasion. Rock the no makeup look with a light layer of BB cream to give your skin that flawless finish and top it off with a pale pink pucker to help you shine and wow like never before.

Red Hot Wednesdays
Shoo away those midweek blues with some crimson perfection. There’s something about red lipstick that can instantly make a girl look and feel like a million bucks. It’s just what you need for an evening of cocktails (hello ladies’ night!) or a romantic date night with your beau. If you feel like red is a bit much for the office, you can tone it down by using a sheer red lipstick instead of some full-on colour.
