To keep the focus on the lips, keep the rest of the face very natural and glowy.

Bright shades on your pout is the  easiest way to add oomph to an otherwise subtle outfit, not much is needed to be done and one can achieve it in a less amount of time.  So it’s perfect for when you have less time on your hands or when you want to take a look from day to night while on the go with very few products. Depending on the occasion, a bold lip can go with almost any make-up look, with simple kohled eyes, subtle shimmery eyeshadows, with an everyday eyeliner or just with lots of mascara on the lashes. That makes it the perfect, go-to make up look. Although a bright lip has always been the easiest way to add colour to your look, this year you’ll see more and more '80s-inspired brights.

How to get the look
Moisturise the skin around the lips and apply concealer and blend well.   
Apply a tiny bit of highlighter or a pale gold eyeshadow on the Cupid’s bow.
Use a lip liner closest to the shade of the lipstick and starting at the Cupid’s bow, outline your lips and fill in the lips with the lip liner as well. Fill in the lips using the lipstick.                                             
Dab a little powder on the lips and re-apply the lipstick. This is an optional step which will help in making the lipstick last much longer.                                                     
To keep the focus on the lips, keep the rest of the face very natural and glowy. For eyes, use concealer to conceal any under eye circles and set it with some translucent powder. Curl your eyelashes and apply lots of mascara.

Colours to try out this season that will match the Indian skin tone are hot pinks, reds, oranges, maroons and oxblood
