“A smile is the best makeup anyone can wear” Marilyn Monroe
As much as we agree with Marilyn we all know that a girl’s best friend can often be her go-to lipstick to provide that extra little boost in confidence and smile enhancement.
Like many make-up items, it’s easy to get stuck in a lipstick rut, with one particular shade that we gravitate to day in and day out. It’s true, some shades can look better on certain skin tones, and if you’ve found the perfect color for you, go on and rock it! However there’s nothing more refreshing than daring to don a new shade on your next night out.
We’ve put our lipstick loving heads together and compiled a list of our current five favorite lipsticks, all perfect for transitioning from summer to autumn, in case you’re ready to give a new one a go:
Australian brand Lipstick Queen has taken the make-up world by storm with their gorgeous textures and mouth watering colors. The Saint Lipstick is a beautiful range of pink, nude and neutral lipsticks perfect for bringing out that inner Mad Men style. We love the shade Pinky Nude… Brigitte Bardot eat your heart out.
