Strong lipstick colours this season's hot new thing

Ladies, colour your lips bright this season. Get your kissers ready for a top make-up trend that is set to dazzle. The look of spring and summer is anything but bland. It starts with strong hues.

"This spring, strong statement lips lead the way for that 'casual glamour' look. A vibrant lipstick is not to be reserved just for the night, casual glamour is for the day or night and the trick is to keep the skin looking fresh and light so the lips can be the focus of the face," says Daniel Sandler, top make-up artist.

Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera are no strangers to the statement-making pouts, and even Sandra Bullock has been known to rock the look.

"A vibrant shade such as Boots 17's Lasting Fix Lipstick in Pink Power will definitely make a statement but there are 20 shades to choose from - take your pick of the bright ones!" insists Sandler.

He advises using colours that suit you and applying them properly.
"Practice makes perfect," he says. "My top tip is to prime the base brush with a little water to speed up application and help prevent bad blending."
