Get the Bold Lip Look, the Bullseye Way

By  October 02, 2013

One trend we never get tired of during the chillier time of the year is a bold lip. Regardless of the hue, a pigmented pout easily pulls together a look with polish and aplomb, even if you’re in a rush. While pricier lippies are certainly appealing, you don’t need to break the bank to go bold. There are myriad ways to take the trend from the catwalk to the sidewalk.

Berry Pretty: Whether it’s more of a wine, has a hint of red, or maybe a pop of plum, a berry shade is a great way to say hello to the new season. Swap out your pastels and neon for a richer tone that complements your refreshed wardrobe.

Matte Magic: For both style and beauty, texture was a huge trend on the runways throughout Fashion Month. Turn the deep hue of your choice on its head with a matte formula instead of a high shine to infuse a bit of old-Hollywood glamour into your look.

A Hint of Tint: We admit, the deeper the lip color, the harder it can be to wear during the day. But if you want to touch on the trend without getting overwhelmed, reach for a colored lip balm or sheer lipstick in a deeper hue for just a wash of color.
