HOW TO WEAR A BOLD LIP – MY 3 TOP TIPS

The key to a bold/red lip is not only finding the right shade, but also keeping the lip line clean and even.

TIP #1 – Choose your lip color with a bare face. The right color will add the perfect amount of life and brightness to your face. You really shouldn’t need much else to go with it. Try a few until you find the one you like best.

There really are no rules when looking for a bold color, but I’ve listed a few helpful hints when looking for a red:

Fair skin – something with a blue undertone like Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl. Or add some bright berry hues to any red with Nars Audacious Lipstick in Vivien.

Medium - You can play around with undertones and go for a true red like Mac’s Russian Red Lipstick.

Dark – You might want to try something with orange undertones to warm up your complexion. Heat Wave by Nars is a classic.

TIP #2 – Line the entire lip first to create a stain for long lasting color. Many cosmetic lines like TARTE, NARSCLINIQUE and REVLON make chubby lipstick pencils that are great for a quick and easy bold lip.

TIP #3 – After you are done applying your lip color use a small concealer brush with a bit of concealer to correct any mistakes. Simply drag the brush around the desired lip line to clean up the edges. In a rush and on the go – try  NYX WonderPencil.
