The Moments: Caroline

It’s feeling like the right moment for a brown lip, perfectly applied and striking against a bare face. Clean skin, no mascara, no color other than this rich chocolate brown. The key here is using a lip liner along with the lipstick, to define and lock it in place. Directly from the tube, apply an even layer of Charlotte Tilbury’s Birkin Brown to your bottom lip, then blend your lips together. Armed with her Foxy Brown liner, go in and carefully sketch around the edges of your lips, with special care taken around the points of the cupid’s bow. Add a little more lipstick on top, as necessary, and blend with your fingertip. Also, don’t forget to take both items with you. Why not be a little high maintenance for once?
