#BeautyBar: 6 lip colours every woman should try by age 30

If you’ve ever had on a stunning, matte red lip then you understand just how powerful a good lip is when it comes to completing an outfit!

There’s no better time to experiment with outfits, hair styles and makeup than in your 20s. Be it a muted matte or a girly gloss, a great lip can be a perfect way to bring some fun element to your makeup and seal your look with a perfect kiss.

If you’re looking to be a little adventurous in the lip department,  be sure to try out these 6 colours:

There’s nothing like a perfect red lip to make a bold statement. Be sure to use some concealer to help perfect the line and clean up any mistakes.

Perfect for the colder days, a plum colour would be a great way to add some edge to your look.

Similar to the nude style, this is a great way to add just the slightest hint of colour to your lips and complete your look.

Arguably the most complicated colour to find in the right shade (but well worth it once you do) orange is a great way to usher in the warmer seasons.

Need we say more? This natural look is a great way to keep your look simple yet chic – perfect if you’ve got a lot going on with your outfit!

Could we get any prettier than in pink? Depending on your skin shade and taste, don’t be afraid to move between bright matte shades and more subtle, glossy ones.
