Fall’s and winter’s biggest beauty statement is a rich, bold lip. Besides, bold lips are a perfect solution on some special occasions, to dates, important presentations and to attract attention if you are wearing glasses. Don’t dare to rock a rich color on your lips? We have some tips that may help you to master the trend and look gorgeous.
Prep Your Lips
Apply a lip balm to smooth your lips. If you have very chapped lips, also brush the lips first with an old toothbrush. This will slough off the excess skin. Then add a moisturizer on top to smooth it out. Blot your lips with a tissue to remove the excessive balm.
Line Your Lips
Find a liner that matches your natural lip color, it will help to keep your bold lipstick in place. You can also use a Q-tip coated in Vaseline to get any lipstick off the edges.
Choose The Color
For those cool-toned girls who, like Kristen Stewart and Gwen Stefani, choosing a brighter shade is the way to go. But to stay on trend, steer away from orange-toned reds that can look too forced and find a deep, rich red that will make your lips pop!
Medium skin tone is the most versatile to match, as it normally has neutral undertones. Lipsticks with a blue undertone are a great choice, as they brighten the skin tone and, even better, give the illusion of whiter teeth!
Olive and dark complexions usually have more golden undertones, perfect for a deeper, more purple tone.
Apply The Color
The key with applying lipstick is to fill in the lips enough for a rich color, but not to go outside the lines. To keep the color bold and rich looking, to top of the stain with a lipstick in a matching shade. To balance out rich lip color, keep the rest of your makeup minimal and modern. If you have thin lips, don’t choose dark shades, stick to bold and light ones.
