Not a red-lip kind of girl? No problem! While we encourage you not to rule out the power of a red lip, it’s most definitely not the be all and end all when it comes to lip tricks. The key to mastering a neutral lip is in understanding what works for your skin so the final result is more ‘wow’ than washed-out. Let’s get started.

Neutral lip go-to: Creamy beige
What this’ll do for you: This subtly complements your skin tone and the minimal cover-up makes you look ultra-chic and modern.
Your skin tone: Fair with hints of olive
Neutral lip go-to: Sheer pink-coral
What this’ll do for you: The coral works a treat of offset traces of olive in your skin and instantly ‘wakes up’ your complexion.

Neutral lip go-to: Glossy pink-beige
