Right ladies, it's the 1st of November and that means Winter is well and truly here. Yep, one member of Grazia Team Beauty has only just donned her first pair of tights and Christmas is now just 53 days away, so pack away those last summery clothes and get yourself ready. If there's one way to instantly update your makeup for the month (and season) ahead, it's with a killer berry red lip. And thankfully, the very lovely and utterly gorgeous Daisy Lowe debuted a textbook lip last night at a swanky red carpet do.
Now we couldn't have chosen anyone more perfect to model the look for us. Daisy's lip is the perfect shade and not too glossy. Or matte for that matter. The key to this is to start with a flawless base - so that means hydrated lips that are even and smooth. We love Lanolips or Lucas Paw Paw Ointment for this (it's a handbag staple for the Winter months). Then just layer on at least 2 coats of your berry lipstick and touch up the edges with a Q-tip. Hey presto, you'll look just like Daisy!
John Richmond & Gucci
Rouge was seen backstage at lots of AW'12 shows and two favourites of ours were Gucci and John Richmond. The Gucci girl looked groomed and beautiful and the red lip finished it off in a chic and Wintery way. Likewise, the John Richmond girl was much more 'done', with full black eyeliner but the punchy lip was what made it. Perhaps Daisy took her own inspiration from one of these?!
To help you kick off the look we've chosen our 3 favourite shades of burgundy which we reckon you should try yourself at home:
