Amongst the inky purple pouts and powdery pigments set to rule our AW13 beauty bags, there are timeless lipstick shades that remain the same from season to season.
Sometimes nothing by a glossy red tint will do, as Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery demonstrated at an Emmy Awards party this week. And after closer inspection, the bob-haired brunette turns out to be quite the classic lipstick pro.
On the Emmy red carpet, she teamed her two-tone Prada gown with an award-winning pink shimmer. Glittery without being gloopy, that’s no mean feat in make-up land.
A pretty pink pout was the perfect partner to her Erdem florals days earlier, as she hit the BAFTA LA TV Tea Party wearing a slick of bright fuschia.
Then toned down and totally wearable on the front row, the Downton star also worked matte nudes at New York Fashion Week.
The outcome? We’re adding Michelle to our lipstick wall of envy with immediate effect. JB
