Lasting lips: the stylish, stay-put colours that won't shift all weekend

This season calls for the bold, the brave and the beautiful. Wallflowers need not apply. If you want to turn heads with colour that’s bang on-trend, lipstick is the answer. And when you’re making a statement this bold, you want to make sure it stays strong. So take our tips for stylish lips that won’t fade away…

Play it on Beamly

Royal red

Red lips are as classic as red nails – they never go out of style. But you can make sure your rouge pout is super stylish by adding a slick of gloss over the top – strong, shiny lips were all over the catwalks this season. To make your extra-bold colour last longer, start with a lip liner, like Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in Red Dynamite, £2.99, then layer up with Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate 15 Year Collection in Idol Red, £6.49 for a punch of colour. Blot, then finish up with a slick of Rimmel’s high impact Oh My Gloss! in Rebel Red, £5.49, for a lip that’s too hot to handle.

Pop of pink

Get loud. Amp up your sweet pink lip with a shade that’s so bright, you’ll need sunglasses. This colour will make your complexion pop, and lend a touch of summer to your face with minimal effort. If you’re looking for colour that calls for minimal touch-ups, use a longwear formula that’s guaranteed to stay in place for hours and hours. Step forward Provocalips 16hr Kissproof Lip Colour in Little Minx, £6.99. Up the ante by matching your lips to your tips, and painting your nails in the equally vibrant Super Gel in Red Ginger, £5.99.

Powerful Purple

This season, deep, dark colours aren’t confined to autumn. Get ahead of the crowd with a plummy sweet hit ofMoisture Renew Lipstick in Dark Night Water-loops, £6.49 – a shade that’s as delicious as a blackcurrant lolly. And to keep your tasty lip look locked down, use this classic makeup artist’s trick: first blot your lips with a translucent powder (we love Rimmel’s Stay Matte Pressed Powder, £3.99) to create a budge-proof base, then slick on your layer of lip colour. Blot and repeat. It’s total goals.
