Pillarbox red; vampy oxblood; Barbie pink; and even brown, SS16 is all about the colour pop. Spring is finally knocking at the door, with bright skies and blooming flowers brightening up our moods and make-up bags. After a winter of deep and heavy shades a quick coat of crimson will lift your look and your mood. This week we chart our favourite lip looks fresh from the catwalks and the sticks to help you get the look.

Burberry’s Oxblood lipstick is a super-dark red with a semi-matte finish. Not convinced this shade is for anything other than deepest, darkest winter? Just take a peek at the Burberry Prorsum SS16 show in London, models offset the patterns and lace with a moody pouty mouth, giving a stronger edge to a usually feminine, floral season. Follow Burberry make-up artist Wendy Rowe’s lead and keep the rest of your make-up fresh and simple. www.burberry.com
