Flawless Fall Lips
While pastel pink, peach, and coral lipsticks were a huge hit this summer, fall is getting an intense make-over with more dramatic reds, fuchsias, and nudes. This fall, everyone can pull off the bright and bold lip trend, but the trick is getting a perfect application. With the following tips, you can easily get a fabulously flawless fall look.
Start by selecting your favorite intense shade. The best shade will be one or two shades lighter or darker than your natural lip color. Try Aveda’s Nourish-MintTM Smoothing Lip Color. Available in several shades, this lipstick not only helps moisturize lips, but it also smoothes fine lines and creates fuller, plumper lips.
Before applying any lip color, prep your kissers! Get a color that last longer by using a conditioning lip treatment, like Aveda’s Nourish-MintTM Renewing Lip Treatment. A lip treatment like this not only helps color last longer, it helps color glide on more smoothly for a flawless application. Now you’re ready to create those glamorous, autumn lips!
Begin by using a lip pencil to out line and fill in lips. Instead of using a different lip liner for every shade of lipstick you have, use Aveda’s Nourish-MintTM Lip Definer. This colorless pencil can be used with any shade of lip color, and it acts as a base to help lip color last even longer. In addition, this liner not only defines the shape of your lips, it visually plumps lips over time and prevents lipstick from feathering and traveling. Start outlining lips from the outer corners of the mouth and blend toward the center, before filling in the rest of your lips.
Next, grab your lipstick and using a lip brush, outline your lips again. Begin by lining the upper lip at the outside corners toward the Cupid’s bow, and do the same for the bottom lip. Now, fill in the lips with the color, starting in the center of the lower lip. Then, apply color to the upper lip in the same fashion, starting in the center, blending out.
Hold on, beautiful! You’re not done yet. Give your lips some extra definition and refine the lip line by lining the contours of your mouth with an angled brush and some concealer. To finish, add a glossy sheen like Aveda’s Nourish-MintTM Rehydrating Lip Glaze just to the center of the lower lip. Balance this bold look out by keeping the rest of your makeup simple.
Bold lips are sexy, strong and sophisticated. Whether it’s a hot pink, a dark red, or a bruised purple, this fall’s trend is sure to leave you feeling confident and looking stylish.
