MIC's Louise Thompson champions pale lips as the next big beauty trend

Made In Chelsea's Louise Thompson is a beauty trendsetter - there's no question about it - but her latest look goes against every single lipstick rule we've ever learnt...

The reality star took to Instagram earlier this week to let us know that pale lips are back with a bang (yep, really) but we have a sneaky suspicion that Lou looked to a slick of concealer rather than of a stick of lippie.

In the snap, Louise rocks a full face of foundation but kicks the beauty rulebook to the kerb and goes a few shades fairer on her lips. And even though it shouldn't work - we adore the ultra-nude, catwalk-worthy look on her.

That's right people. Concealer lips are no longer the stuff of secondary school and we have a feeling that they're about to catch on again.

But there's a knack to nailing it! To avoid looking a bit like a mannequin, your best bet is to opt for a concealer that is one or even two hues lighter than your foundation base - and it'll only really work with a high shine lacquer over the top.

We love Pommade Divine's Nature Remedy Balm, £19.50, as it'll stop your lips from drying out or cracking.
