It does the soul good to switch things up from time to time, especially at the beginning of the year. And this doesn’t only apply to your wardrobe, your beauty look can also change up a bit. Where better to start than with your lip colour? Take a break from your tried and tested lipstick and try on a different shade. It will really make a world of difference.
Here are 5 of the best lipstick shades at the moment seen on our fave celebs. Which do you wanna try?
We’re still loving the bright fuschia colour that was hot last year but it’s also great to calm things down a bit and play with lighter shades of pink and lilac. Subtle yet striking.

2. Navy or Black
Be daring and try a bolder look this year. Navy and black lipsticks are all the rage right now and they don’t have to give off a grungy appearance. Just pair the colour with your regular attire and it will work wonderfully.

That fresh-faced, barely made-up look is still very much on trend. A nude lip is great for those days when you want to accentuate features like your eyes and cheekbones.

Have some fun and go for this lipstick shade. A lot of people worry that this colour will be too garish but actually if you find the perfect shade for your skin tone, it looks lovely.

The classic red lip never ever goes out of style. If you’re still too weary of wearing one and would rather stick with more tamer colours, make 2016 the year that you try it. It will change your life!
