Beauty tips: crisp matte lips for a power pout

Lawyer on a lunch date: Bottega Veneta AW18.

Worn with taupe eyeshadow and creamy skin, the most memorable lip from the Bottega Veneta show was not a wild fuchsia or bold red, instead, a brownish berry shade, in uncompromising matte. Here is a 1990s look, but polished to within an inch of its life. Think corporate takeover, think lawyer on a lunch date, think boss in a cold climate. And exfoliate first.
