Vivid Red Lips – Fall’s Top Beauty Trend

If there’s one word that sums up all the beauty trends this fall, it’s “dramatic”. Yes, dramatic red lips are this season’s hottest look, so you can ditch the pastels this season and opt for more vivid colors of red for sexier, more luscious lips. Be careful with your choices though. Not all shades of red will go well with every skin tone, so it’s best that you know what degree of lipstick redness will suit you best.
For those of you with fairer skin, opt for deep red or wine red – the kind of red with some bluish undertones. If you’d prefer something that you can wear at daytime, try the one with a peachy red hue.
If you have a pinkish glow, matte red lipstick will suit you best.
If you have medium complexion or neutral skin tone – something that falls between fair and dark – try reds with a tinge of orange. Reddish brown tones of lipstick will also look great on you.
For you ladies with darker or warmer skin tones, pick something red with a hint of purple or black, mainly more intense and darker shades of red like black cherry, plum, burgundy, or maroon.
The trick to finding the best shade of red lipstick for your skin tone is to go for the one that makes you look vibrant.

If you think you look much paler than normal or darker than usual, that means you picked the wrong shade. Do a skin test when picking out your red lipstick. If budget seems to be a problem, you don’t have to worry because you can achieve those luscious red lips for under $10. Among the best and quite affordable choices are:

Revlon Renewist Lip Color ($9.99)

Neutrogena Moistureshine Soothing LipSheers ($8.99)

Sonia Kashuk Luxury Lip Color ($7.99)

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor ($7.50)
NYX Round Lipstick ($0.99)
Now that you have an idea on what shade to pick at the price that fits your budget, the next step to achieve those dramatic red lips this season is proper application. To prevent feathering, use a lip liner that’s the same color as your lipstick and use it to trace around the edges of your lips. Once done, use your lipstick and fill in the lip area within the lines. You also have the option of applying concealer around your lips to prevent smudging.

If you’re using bright colored lipstick and you want it to brighten up or take away some years from your face, put on some lip gloss after applying your lipstick. The sheer color will liven up your face, making you look younger and fresher.

To prevent your lipstick from sticking to your teeth, suck your finger after application. This should remove any excess gloss or lipstick from the inside of your lips.

Red dramatic luscious lips are definitely hot this fall. Just remember – if you’re going for bold red lips, avoid painting your nails red. You want your lips and not your nails to do the talking.
