Celebrity Makeup Artist, Vardan Nayak Recommends 5 Lipsticks That Will Make It Through Every Season, Outfit, and Occasion

Mellow Mood

The perfect understated colour to wear - every woman should have a nude lipstick in her dresser. I recommend customizing your nude lipstick by using a different shade of lip liner underneath. If you use a pink lip liner, your nude lipstick will be a pinkish nude. This is a trick I use on a lot of brides and celebrities to customize a nude lipstick to match their skin tone perfectly” says Vardan. If you’re trying to ace that no-makeup-look or you want to find the perfect lipstick to complement that smokey eye, the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color in Peach Rose or the Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color in Coffee Lite are perfect choices.

The shade Peach Rose is best suited for women with a light to medium complexion since it’s the perfect blend of peach, pink, and everything in between. But, the shade Coffee Light is the perfect ‘my lips but better’ lipstick for women with a medium to dusky skin tone. It can also be used as a blush! 

The Girl Next Door

Vardan recommends a peachy pink lipstick that’s versatile enough to be worn all through the year. “A peachy pink lipstick is feminine, flirty, and absolutely charming. It’s also the perfect shade of lipstick for anyone who hasn’t warmed up to bold reds and corals just yet. Peach is such a lovely colour – it’s not bold like red, neither is it delicate like pink. Staying in between both these colours, peach is a very versatile option. It’s the perfect all season lip colour, you can use it in winters, summers, monsoon or spring. It is one of those colours that spells elegance. It doesn’t look over the top, it doesn’t bleed and it sits pretty on your lips. This shade makes your skin look even brighter” he says.

A muted, peach lipstick looks good on every skin tone. It’s also the shade of lipstick that most celebrities love wearing. Opt for the Kareena Kapoor Khan by Lakmé Absolute Pout Definer in Mischievous Love.

Bold and Beautiful

There’s nothing more empowering than a bright red lip. It’s the perfect way to make a bold statement. It brightens up a no-makeup look and is also the perfect accessory to a little black dress. Vardan personally loves a bold red lip. “This lip color never goes out of trend, it’s always on fire! Everyone enjoys wearing a red lipstick because the colour brings so much drama to your face. It instantly brightens your complexion and gives you a glamorous look” he says.

The Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Lip Color in Red Coat is a stunning red that flatters all skin tones. The formula is rich, creamy, and matte and will last you all day.

Vardan recommends a bubbly orange lipstick through summer. “A bright orange or coral lipstick is perfect for a hot summer’s day. Orange brings out and complements the warmth in Indian skin tones perfectly” he says.

Grab your sunnies, slip into your beachwear, and pop on the Kareena Kapoor Khan By Lakmé Absolute Pout Definer in Orange Showgirl. Apply a little and dab it off with some tissue for a light coral lip. If you want to go all-out, two or three coats should do the trick.

Berry, burgundy, and bright fuchsia, these colours are perfect for sweater weather. Since the lipstick is quite bold, it covers up and takes attention away from any discolourations around the mouth. It is also the perfect lipstick shade to pick when you’re in doubt since it looks great on all skin tones!” adds Vardan.

The Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Matte Lipstick in Plum Spell and the Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color in Burgundy Lush are beautiful deep-berry colours that you should get your hands on.
