THE SHOT OF
Diego Dalla Palma’s lipstick gives a high-impact, sophisticated finish that’s perfect for brightening up your winter look, says Style & Living’s Isabelle O’Carroll
Think of 1930s designer Elsa Schiaparelli’s shocking pink, or Bette Davis wearing striking scarlet in the classic film Jezebel, and you can see the power of colour. I love Diego Dalla Palma’s lipstick, which comes in a range of bold shades– it’s the perfect way to amp up your style in an instant. The highly pigmented formula is long-lasting and gives silky smooth coverage. To get a picture-perfect pout, prep lips with a balm, then wipe off and dab foundation to provide an even base. For a precise look, gently trace the contours of your mouth with lip liner in short strokes before using a lip brush to apply the colour. Blot with a tissue and then reapply for a perfect finish.
