Bold Lips for Fall


Runway show after runway show, the Fall 2009 presentations were full of bold lip colors. From blood red, to berry, to wine, when it came to makeup, the lips made a strong statement. 

If you’re going to go with a bold lip for fall, the rest of your makeup should be subtle. Use just a hint of blush to add color to your cheeks. Leave eyes bare, a well groomed brow (fuller brows are in in this season), and a coat of mascara are all the makeup needed for this look. Many  of the bold lips that came down the  runways were matte, but you can achieve a day friendly version of the look by using a semi sheer lip color and topping it with a dab of gloss. Since the sheer take will be less severe, it will also require less maintenance. 

For the best bold look, make sure your lips are smooth before you start. Exfoliate with a damp towel or toothbrush, if needed, and condition your lips with your favorite lip balm (lightly). Top with your favorite bold hue for your runway-ready look.
