Alesha Dixon laughed in the face of 'normal' lipstick colours this week, when she dissed red and pink for a much more off-the-wall, electric blue pout.

And if anyone can carry off blue lips, our Alesha can!

The Britain's Got Talent judge debuted her new look on Instagram on Monday (6 May) after sitting in the make-up chair of slap supremo, Karin Darnell.

"Seemed like a good idea at the time!" Alesha posted. "@karindarnell is the lip queen! She can convince me to try any colour!" she added.

Karin has showed off her creative skills on the faces of Jessie J, Rihanna, Myleene Klass and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton over the years and we're big fans of her make-up handiwork.

She was also responsible for Alesha's amazing look on the BAFTAs red carpet on Sunday night (5 May), below.

When it comes to make-up colours, blue certainly wouldn't be our first choice when walking down the lipstick aisle (ooh, if only they existed...).

Blue eyeliner? Yes. Blue temporary hair colour? Definitely. But blue lips? Not high on our priority beauty must-dos, we have to admit.

Somehow, though, Alesha manages to carry off this rather 'out there' look pretty well. Eat your heart out, Kelly Osbourne!

Fancy turning heads and trying a similar look yourself? Then we love Illamasqua Lipstick in Disciple, £19.50, which is a deep navy, matte lippy that works amazingly on dark skin types.

You could also try MAC Cosmetics Lipmix in Blue, £14.50, or Stargazer Lipstick in No. 105, £3.50,

Just remember, this kind of colour-pop, in-your-face lip colour should be coupled with VERY little else on the eyes. Mascara will suffice nicely.
