How to Wear a Bold Lip Color
A little lip goes a long way. When you need something to liven up your look, lipstick can polish your freshly done face or add a little standout color when there's no time for a full face.
It is amazing how your makeup looks can vary dramatically depending upon which lip colors you apply. Here are some great choices to help you achieve the lip you love.
Prep Your Pout
Before applying lipstick, there are things that you can do to maximize the effect. It is important to start with healthy, smooth lips so your lipstick goes on smoothly and doesn’t look gloppy.
When you are in the shower or while washing your face each day, take a washcloth and gently exfoliate your lips. Then use a lip balm to seal in moisture.
If your lips are on the thinner side, you may want to try a lip plumper to increase your pout. This miraculous product helps to:
- Augment the size of your lips
- Bring softness to your lips
- Provide lip hydration
We have two great recommendations for a plumping product. The first is Grandelash Grandelips Hydrating Lip Plumper, which can be used as a clear lip gloss or in conjunction with other lip colors.
Our second suggestion has a bit of a tint to liven up your look. Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper NYC contains amazing ingredients such as shea butter and avocado and sunflower oils to moisturize your lips while giving them a little something extra.
Don’t forget that lip products make great stocking stuffers. Who doesn’t like a little bit of luxury in their life? And while you are picking up some gifts during a Black Friday pre-sale, be sure to choose a little something for yourself, too.
Select Your Shade
Lipstick is a powerful tool. You can use lip colors to transform the entire look of your face depending upon whether you go with bold, natural, bright or neutral.
If you are seeking something natural, find a neutral shade that is in the same color family as your skin tone. This gives you a soft look that is perfect for daytime or when you feel like a simple yet polished look.
However, when you want to be a little more daring, a bold eye and brave lips go well together. This may mean going all out with false eyelashes or lots of black mascara and a vivid lip. Experiment with different hues until you find one that calls to you and decide whether you want shocking, classic or trendy.
If you are looking to brighten your face with a true beige rose, a good choice is Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Sandwash Pink. This luxurious formula goes on smoothly and delivers lovely color to your lips while flattering all skin tones.
When you are picturing lip colors that take you from day to night, you should check out Glo Skin Beauty Lip Gloss in Plum Glaze. Warmer than a light pink but not as daring as a dark pink, it kisses your lips with an infusion of a deep but sheer color. A formula that contains vitamins and green tea extract means that your lips feel relief each time you put it on.
