3 Ways to Wear Bold Lips

trickiest part about bold lip colors is just getting the confidence to
be comfortable wearing them. Yes, you’ll leave lipstick stains on your
cups and likely have to touch-up midday, but they are so worth the
trouble. Nothing brightens your face as much as the perfect shade of
lipstick, so take the time to find the right shade and build your makeup
look for the day around it.

When you’re wearing any kind of pink lip color, embrace
the doll-like look and play it up with thick lashes and porcelain skin.
You want the makeup to be sophisticated, not too girly, so stick to
matte colors and make sure your lip color is crisp and evenly lined
before stepping out the door!


Any unconventional lip color like purples or oranges will be harder to
wear, but keeping the look polished with well-groomed brows and great
skin sets a good base for the trendy look.

The key to working with reds, whether they’re dark burgundies or classic
siren reds, is all about ensuring that there is no redness anywhere
else on the face. Illuminated, fresh under-eyes are also important, so
stick to yellow based concealers. Finish with an accent of shimmer on
the inner corner of the eyes.

Final Tips for Wearing Bold Lips:
-Run a q-tip dipped in translucent powder around the edges of the lips to prevent bleeding throughout the day.
-Use a nude lip liner instead of a colored lip liner so that when your lip color wears off you don’t have a ring of color around your lips.
-Blue toned lip colors make teeth look whiter.
-When in doubt, stick to matte colors instead of shimmer, which can look more juvenile.
