Trend Alert: Red Lips

19 Oct

The trend of red lips can’t seem to fade away, especially not in the face of the fall season.  Nothing stands out more than a subtle red-hot pucker (done correctly, of course).  Read on for tips on how to achieve siren lips in no time!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Before you get started, choose a lip liner that matches your lip tone.  Don’t apply too much liner to your Cupid’s bow (the center of your top lip) or you could wind up looking overdone.

Now for the fun part: choose your perfect color!  Don’t be afraid to try out different hues before you settle for a favorite.  There may be one hue that perfectly matches you, or several; you’ll never know until you shop around.  If you have thin lips, steer clear of darker red shades; this can make your pout appear even smaller.  To fake fuller-looking lips, don’t be afraid to trace your liner a bit outside your natural border to fake it.  If you already have full lips, try classic red shades that will compliment lips nicely without going overboard.  Chanel’s Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Color is my absolute favorite and comes in a variety of hot shades, and will give you a gorgeous finish.

Have fun experimenting!
