Bright-colored lips continued to be all the rage at the Fall 2011 shows this year (Sonia Rykel, Ralph Lauren, Thakoon, Mui Mui Ready-to-Wear). Purples, Fuchsias, Oranges and Reds… it’s a make-up artists dream come true! And it’s easy to translate this trend into real life by remembering these simple guidelines:
- Pick a creamy or matte formula lipstick while avoiding shimmer, metallic and glossy finishes.
- Go more minimal on the rest of your face by skipping eyeshadow or opting for a lighter shade, or even an eye gloss. If it’s a must for you, cheat liner between your lashes or only inside on your waterline.
- Go ahead and go bold with your mascara by applying a couple coats or by creating spider lashes.
To make it last all day, follow these steps from my So Fancy tutorial and you’ll be all set to make a statement this Fall! Such a simple and easy way to be brave…
