WY? Beauty Contributor, Claire Vyverberg tells us how to achieve the perfect lip.

From runways to red carpet, spring racing to summer bbqs. A bright bold lip is your best accessory. I have scouted, sampled and sourced the best of the best for the Who’s Your? beauty aficionados and want to share my top five lip products for the perfect lip:

Lip Liner - you can’t go past a nude non-descript colour that allows you to fill over the natural lip line to give the illusion of fuller more luscious lips.
My fave: ‘TONGA” Lipliner by NARS

Lip Stain - a longwear option with a softer effect. Something that says ‘I am fun and flirty but not high maintenance”.
My fave: Stila Crush Lip & Cheek Stain in “CHERRY”

Lipstick - an old-school beauty staple that has come a long way in terms of durability, wear ability and on trend colour options. The choices are endless these days, in terms of finish and application.
My three faves:
MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in “BOOYAH!”
Chanel Rouge Allure in “INIMITABLE”
NARS Velvet Matte Pencil in “DRAGON GIRL”

Lip Gloss - a fresh effortless option when it comes to lip colour. The perfect solution for a woman on the go, who needs to reapply at the traffic lights for an instant hit of colour.
My fave: Chantecaille Luminous Gloss in “GUAVA”

Lip Plumper - for a full lip service and a plump pout without the pain- get yourself a lip plumping product that stimulates circulation and collagen. Think tingling bee-stung lips. Naturally full and enhanced to perfection.
My fave: Fusion Beauty Micro-Injected Collagen Lip Plump in “SUN”
