Have you fallen into a lipstick rut?

If you’ve become the person who always wears the same lipstick shade, you are not alone. It happens to the best of us. You find a product that feels amazing to apply, in a shade that complements your skin tone like a dream. Then naturally, you get comfortable. Months go by – sometimes even seasons – and still you return to the same trust-worthy tint.

We don’t want you to ditch your favourite shade – after all, breaking up is hard to do. But sometimes it’s nice to shake things up. Nothing updates your look quite as well – or as quickly – as changing your lipstick.

But when you're used to rocking neutrals, it's hard to fathom wearing orange, red or pink. So where do you begin?

Keep reading for the six celebrities you can always rely on for a little lipstick inspiration…
