Muted, sultry and slightly dewy: it’s the ultimate pink lip that pairs with anything, and a style that will take you from desk to dinner date. Whatever look you’re going for, it works – it’s the fallback style for any occasion. Ultra natural, just-woke-up-like-this; pair it with pink. Winged eyes and rosy cheeks; pair it with pink. Dark, out-all-night shadow; add some flirt by pairing it with pink.

Sure, we’re all for a bold lip – and there can be nothing more daring than an apple red bold lip, or a deep sexy shade of bordeaux – but a soft pink lip is a weekday staple that’s wearable afterhours too (with some extra liner, of course).

Here, some image inspo and some pretty shades to try.
