5 lipsticks shades THAT WILL MAKE YOU HAPPIER

Posted on 17 May 2016

Colour theory proves that certain hues affect us and our emotions in different ways, but have you ever thought about how this philosophy applies to your makeup? If a red can inspire passion and brown can inspire you to be industrious, maybe a swipe of coloured lipstick can do the same thing. Studies support colour psychology and it’s used in everything from marketing to interior design, so why wouldn’t it apply to your make-up…

Here are 5 lipstick shades we think can {and will} make you feel happier….

1. RED
We know red as the colour of passion, but it can also excite different emotions. If you’re after an energy kick or are lacking in independence, it can be just the thing you need to boost your vitality and courage.

2. ORANGE
Colour psychology says that this vivid shade relates to our gut instincts, which means it’s great to have around when you’re making decisions. It’s also said to offer emotional strength, so don’t think twice about reaching for tangerine lipstick in tough times.

SHOP The Lip Lab TUSCANY

3. PINK
Feeling disconnected from your family and friends or even just from yourself? Pink is said to represent universal love, so swiping it on your lips during these times can help promote intimacy and understanding.

SHOP The Lip Lab ROSE

4. PURPLE
Purple promotes a different kind of happy—it represents peace, creativity and magic. A combo of fiery red and soothing blue, it delivers the best of both. Reach for this hue when you need your spirits uplifted and your nerves calmed.

SHOP The Lip Lab NOVEMBER REIGN
