From neon mattes to ultra-pink glosses, lip colours have never been more inventive. And that means there's no better time to perk up your pout.

So why not kiss goodbye to lacklustre lips and prepare your mouth for this season's pretty pucker.


Buff away rough skin with Clarins Extra Firming Lip and Contour Gentle Exfoliator. Use it once or twice a week for a gorgeously hydrated pout.


Quench your newly scrubbed lips with a protective lip balm. While petroleum jelly like Vaseline simply covers your lips, a hydrating balm like Clinique Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm will nourish as it hydrates.


To build up body in your lips, use a primer to add a buoyant foundation. Elizabeth Arden Advanced Lip Fix Primer will minimise lipstick bleeding and smudging for a model smile.


Faintly line your lips with a nude lip liner suited to the colour and tone of your lips. Max Factor Lip Tint Pens have a perfectly angled tip to for defined contours.


With a clear gloss, carefully dab over your bottom lip before dabbing a little concealer under the centre of your bottom lip for a fuller 3D effect.
