Beauty: Fuchsia Lipstick

Always keen to keep you up-to-date as to what the stylish set is reaching for in the beauty department – this season it’s a bright and bold fuchsia lip colour.

It all started backstage at the Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S 10 catwalk show, when Shiseido’s Artistic Director created an OTT look that is probably the most outrageous version of this look you’ll see.

If the full on fuchsia catwalk version is too much for you, try wearing the tint just like Maggie Gyllenhaal did at The Oscars – she used NARS Schiap lip colour.

I also like the way that Gwyneth Paltrow makes it look so wearable at an event in the Hotel La Mamounia in Marrakech – use Dolce & Gabbana’s Lipstick in Shocking to achieve her look.

If you’re a Mac fan, their fuchsia pink version is called Violetta which is worn by the likes of Chloe Sevigny.

My personal favourite lipstick to achieve this look? Rimmel’s Moisture Renew 320 shade in Funtime Fuchsia (€7.22).  Their Diva Red has never let me down and so this fuchsia pink shade in stepping up to the mark nicely too.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor wears it and it’s a good lipstick choice if you’re a pale Irish make up like me, as it warms up your complexion.

So if you have a vibrant sense of style and confidence, then this shade is for you.

You’ll also know what to wear with all those nude and neutral coloured spring outfits!
