What We've Learnt: Neon Lips

If there’s one image from the shows that the world remembers it would have to be photographer Luca Cannonieri’s shot of Fendi model Julia Saner via

Take a look at the 70s blow-wave, full brows, pared-back matte complexion and, of course, those neon lips perfectly executed by Chanel make-up extraordinaire Peter Philips.

Jil Sander and Marni also set bright lips to be the next cult trend. Beauty editors from around the world took note of standout colours including the hottest of pink and the brightest of tangerine.

They’re ideal for summer and manage to give every face suffering dullness an instant pick-me-up. A word of warning: keep your base and eye make-up relatively netural to avoid an overload of clashing colours.

For a pucker with a punch, try:

YSL Rouge Volupte in Extreme Coral, $55

For those of you who don’t dare ditch the classic crimson, I've found a rouge that reaffirms why every woman’s beauty staple should be the seductive red lipstick.

When I recently attended Vogue’s Fashion Night Out, every person I passed commented on the lovely beauty editor Sigourney’s lip colour. Her pout was graced by the presence of Chanel’s Rouge Coco in Cambon, $50.

For those of you still looking for your sexy shade of red, Cambon is ideal for those who can’t get enough of a creamier textured lip colour. Rouge Coco is a personal favourite of mine and I always have it at the ready for an instant hit of glam.
