Paint the Town, I Mean Your Lips, RED

Fall always beckons a new set of trends, whether it’s fur vs no fur, silhouettes, or prints, but one of my favorite trends for this fall is the reemergence of the red lip.  Though timeless and classic, the red lip can, and often does, go wrong.  It may take a little tweaking and forethought at first, but wearing red lipstick can be easy as pie once you get the hang of it.


The preparation: Make sure that your lips are conditioned when wearing lipstick.  This general rule will help your lipstick look smoother and last longer.

Don’t forget the first step: LINE THOSE LIPS!  Lip liner is crucial when wearing red lipstick.  Liner helps keep the color from bleeding outside of your lips, which means you won’t end up looking like the Joker at the end of a long day.  Try to match your liner as best as you can to your lip color or go for a neutral lip liner.  Don’t forget that the color of your lip liner will affect the shade of your final product, so try a few combinations to see what works best for you.

The color: For this fall’s trend, steer clear of the orangey-reds and go for crimson or purple-red shades that complement your complexion.  These colors tend to be more flattering on most complexions, unlike orangey reds.  If you want to be a bit daring, try a plum lipstick, but make sure that it isn’t so dark that it makes your face look flushed.

What do you think? Are you going to add some va-va-voom to your fall wardrobe with a red lip?
