Get ready for a night of dance-floor decadence with springy curls, bronzed lids and bold lips fit for any disco queen.
Studio 54 regulars Jerry Hall, Marie Helvin and Angelica Huston were rarely seen without scarlet lips with a vinyl effect. The new NARS Velvet Lip Glide marries the effortlessness of a lip gloss with the coverage of a lipstick for a creamy finish. Try it in Mineshaft, a poppy red that adds warmth to paler complexions, or No. 54, a flattering shade on virtually every skin tone.

The perfect bare-lip look takes prep work. Usa a gentle scrub followed by a conditioning balm for soft and smooth lips. NARS’ Oil Infusion Complex also helps ensure a smooth glide so lips stay hydrated and comfortable. Stripped is a creamy beige pink shade that works well on yellow undertones, while Unlaced has a slightly rosy tint to complement those with pink undertones.

Beyond a liquid lip colour, the Velvet Lip Glide also doubles up as a handy lip stain. Blend foundation over lips to create a muted base. This keeps touch-ups to a minimum as it prevents the colour from sliding. Next, dab Velvet Lip Glide in Toy on the centre of your lips, blending outwards to the edges of lips for a just-bitten effect.

Be the centre of attention with gilded accents and immaculate deep red lips. Start by outlining your lips with a lip liner, paying special attention to the cupid’s bow, before topping off with Velvet Lip Glide in Unspeakable. Its uniquely shaped applicator gives you unparalleled control for ultimate precision. Blot with tissue and reapply for headturning intensity.

For a night of brazen revelry, an unexpected pop of pink does the trick. Velvet Lip Glide in Danceteria is a vivid red-tinged pink that lights up any complexion. For maximum impact, layer over a clear gloss on the centre of your lips for a high-shine, lacquer effect and keep skin luminous and bare.
