Dominating the runways this summer and adorning the lips of everyone – from Miroslava Duma to Olivia Palmero – were three colour stories, each expressing a rather distinct view for a variety of social occasions.

Burgundians – Channel explosive energy in the colour so often associated with power, Tom Ford’s Smoke Red lip colour is perfect for night-time, while Chanel’s Rouge Allure in 99 Pirate is good for steering you through the working week.

Pink Brigade – Empower yourself and exude femininity with MAC’s Angel in frosted soft-pink, essential for a work luncheon or afternoon errands. Gucci’s Exposure comes in a special formula that keeps your lips moisture rich, a must-have for those extended flight plans.

The Hue of Zen – Embody the spiritual vibes of the orient in Coral Silk, adding an instant glow to all skin tones. For a satin-couture finish try Rouge Dior in Zemire Amber, an essential for beach-bar days. Then, for a bolder night on the town Lancome’s Miss Coquelicot shade will last up to 6 hours with high colour potency.
