Fall Beauty: Go RED

Autumn leaves, a cold breeze, pretty trees...I love the Fall season!

Trends are changing as fast as the leaves are falling now that a new season has arrived! Get ready to whip out your jackets, play up new fashions and experiment with new shades. One of my new favorite trends is the bold lip makeup look. 

I love this look because it's perfect for the upcoming holidays as well! You can play it up or dress it down depending on your outfit and other makeup choices! 

Tips to achieve the bold lip trend:
  1. Keep the rest of your makeup low key. Apply mascara, some champagne eyeshadow and you're all set!
  2. If you're going to use a red lip stain, make sure to apply lip balm before applying the stain to ensure soft and pretty lips! 
  3. Find a red that complements your skin tone. I am a warm toned girl so true reds and wine shades work best for me!
  4. You can create a matte red lip by blotting the lipstick with a napkin. If you'd rather have a shiny lip, apply some lipgloss on top!

Products I've used:
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor Red Revolution
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipgloss in Cranberry
NYC Smooch Proof 16 Hour Lip Stain in Champagne Stain
NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Deep Red
