The Expert’s Pick
Make-up artist Samira Olfat’s perfect pout product is Max Factor’s Lipfinity Lip Tint in Royal Plum. “For deep, intense colour that stands the test of time, this is just the ticket. A vibrant plum hue to fit in with this season’s trend, it offers matte, kiss-proof colour that won’t smudge. My top tip? Remove dead skin by scrubbing lips, then line lips with the tint (ensuring there’s no moisture on them first) before filling them in with berrylicious colour. Kiss a clean tissue, repeat the process and you have the perfect power pout.”
