Plum Lips

We think there's nothing more wonderful for a winter lip than a deep plummy stained lip.? It feels more modern than a classic red and we love its brightening effect on our skin tone. It adds an ethereal moodiness to winter beauty especially when applied in a slightly messy fashion (tip: press it on with a finger to give that soft, stained effect and make sure to ditch any remnants of tan - play up the pale, people!)
