After 18 months of hiding our faces, the masks are coming off and the lips are out. So how are we embracing our new-found freedom? With bold, beautiful lips, of course. From the classic red lipsticks that never fail us to high-shine gloss and the new trend for soft, smudged lips, we’re going big. Get ready for the return of the lip.

A strong red lip never goes out of style, but it’s been one of the trickier looks to pull off when wearing a mask. Top of our list is Gucci's OD red - just the right mix of orange/red to take you into summer. While Tom Ford's Cherry Lush has just enough of a blue undertone to suit just about any skin tone.

Much like the rest of the ‘90s, high-power gloss is back in a big way. From nourishing oils to high-pigment colours, lip goss has come a long way since its OG days. Layer clear glosses over bold lipstick for the ultimate going out look, or swipe on easy-wear nudes for lips that look healthy every day.

Ever tried to put your lipstick on pre mask wearing? Then you’ll be familiar with the dreaded smudge. Rather than fight it, we’re now embracing it as the new way to work lipstick. With this one, you can skip the painstaking pencil and precision application and go for easy-wear matte textures designed to be blurred at the edges for that just-bitten appeal. 

Tip: Apply to the centre of your lip and use your finger to smudge to the edges for an instant lived in feel.
