Ever had that feeling that you just want to try something new? Looking through your lipstick collection and make up bag you see tired and tatty tubes and bottles, but not sure where to start. Like clothes, hair, and music even make up has trends. Colours come in one season and out the next. So that glitter eyeshadow may come back in (it has!) and white eyeliner will do another turn of the pages of Vogue.
Switching up your look is not always budget friendly and not always easy. Women spend from their teens to their 30s finding the right products, the right colours and the right brands for what becomes a woman's unique look. We all have one! But what about when we walk through department stores in Debenhams, lovingly looking at the girls perfectly made up with a great look or the rows on rows of enticing colours?

Not only that but we are full out Hollywood drama with our exclusive 15% off Mac at Debenhams voucher code.
Dare to Try Our 6 MAC Lipstick Colours
Relentlessly Red – Red Lipstick
Is there any make up wearing woman that hasn’t tried a red lipstick at least once? From your Film Noir Femme Fatale to Monroe and Hepburn. The red lip is an iconic look and one that everyone can pull off regardless of skin tone, lips shape or lipstick style. There is a shade for every woman, a gloss for every girl and a finish for every female.
Who it Suits Best: Like the LBD, the black patent stiletto and the leather clutch. The red lipstick is a timeless classic that can be moulded to every look. So, it suits everyone, just match your shade to your tone.
Hack: We would avoid using a red lip liner, you never manage to find one that matches, and two-tone red does not look striking, it looks messy. Do try deeper reds and bolder shades if you have a slightly darker tone to your skin as the look can be striking but don’t be afraid to look at taking a lighter shade if you have lighter tones to your skin.
Celebrities Who Have: Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift.
All Fired Up – Hot Pink Lipstick
If unlike our classic red ladies, you prefer something slightly more modern but just as striking we would direct you to All Fired Up by Mac. Pinks from the subtle floral hues to their brilliant beautifully hot shades offer a great alternative to the red lip. We look to pair a red lip with a colour contrasting blue or green eye shadow for something quite ethereal.
Who it Suits Best: Not ready for the ultra-trendy orange but feel far to young to be going red? Hot pink is great for people that are still experimenting as it offers not only a mid colour ground but a range of shades. You can even layer your colour to build impact as you build confidence.
Hack:: Keep your eye makeup simple and natural to give those rosy pink lips the full effect.
Celebrities Who Have: Beyoncé, Marisa Tomei and Reece Witherspoon
Dangerous – Orange Lipstick
We love the name of this lipstick if nothing else. The thought of wearing an orange lipstick makes us fill slightly wild and simply dangerous. Orange lipstick can be one of those colours that can be overlooked on the high street. Mac have the most perfect bright orange shade for the truly dangerous of us out there.
Who it Suits Best: If you are too cool for school and prefer something alternative to classic colours, the orange offers a great alternative. It’s a great colour for all ages and skin tones.
Hack: Orange is a great all year-round colour and gives you multiple looks from sun kissed summer beauty to autumnal awesomeness. Try wearing it slightly darker as the months turn from Spring to Summer and Summer to Autumn. Your skin tone is likely to have darkened and the effect will be striking.
Celebrities Who Have: Kate Bosworth, Zendaya, Jessica Alba.
Flat Out Fabulous – Purple Lipstick
The Pantone colour of 2018 is …. yes, you got it, purple. Not only that but we called this fashion trend way back in January. Now we are revelling from 15% off the cost of this oh so perfect ultra violet shade or purple lipstick. We love the purple lipstick not only because it is on trend but because it ensures that we will be seen in thos great night out photos (the before ones not after).
Who it Suits Best: Unfortunately, purple washes out fairer skin tones and can end up ageing the wearer. But for darker skin tones of any age it can be a great alternative when wore with purple accessories.
Hack: For a truly sexy look go completely matt with your purple lipstick. Purple lipstick can make your lips smaller so try to dab a little white eyeshadow in the centre of your lips if you want a fuller look.
Celebrities Who Have: Rhianna, Katy Perry, Kelly Osbourne
Muscu Linity – Nude Lipstick
Remember when your Collection 2000 concealer doubled as your lipstick way back in the 90s? Remember how your dad said it made you look dead? Well Daddy, your little girl is all grown up and she is rocking a nude look and there is no sex tape in sight (we know what you were thinking).
Who it Suits Best: When it comes to nude we are not talking about one colour. To describe a nude lipstick is like trying to describe the exact colour of your skin tone. The trick is to what tone you are - warm, neutral or cool and match to the right nude for you.
Hack: Its all about texture with a nude lipstick. Too matt and you could just look washed out and glittery or frosty shades can leave even warmer skin tones looking grey.
Celebrities Who Have: Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, All the Kardashians and Jenners.
Valiant – Black Lipstick
We have showcased a straight black lipstick but really this advice applies to any of our colours but in their darkest and deepest shades. Not just for goths and those with dark souls. A black and dark lipstick can have a devasting impact on your look. So, make sure you check out the deepest colours in the Mac range.
Who it Suits Best: This is truly the original anyone colour. From the ancient Egyptian princess to the modern oh so cool woman. A black lipstick is a statement to really switch your look up. If you tend to always opt for girlier pinks and glitters this could be a real impact winner.
Hack: Avoid too much other make up so you don’t look like your going for sexy Halloween witch. Try adding some lip gloss or a frosty shade for a paired down look.
Celebrities Who Have: Gigi Hadid. Lady Gaga, Alexandra Burke.
