Bold Fall Lips

Hey lovelies! 
Today I have put together a few of my favorite, bold lipsticks as of late. Typically I am a total nude/light pink lip lover but recently I have been obsessed with darker, more fun, colored lips!

MAC Lady Danger// This is an awesome bright coral-red lipstick that is matte. I love matte as they last pretty long throughout the day and do not cake up on me.

Maybelline Dazzling Plum// Amazing find I stumbled across at CVS. This is a dark burgundy/plum that is moisturizing feeling and lasts a really long time too.

MAC Flat Out Fabulous// Latest addition and love her! She is a fun, bright plum that is matte and makes your teeth the whitest I have ever seen!

MAC Vegas Volt// This is my 2nd one of VV and I love this during the summer over Snob or Creme d' Nude and it is also a gorgeous coral (amplified creme) all by itself.

Lip Tips:
Exfoliate// with a wash cloth or a separate toothbrush to make sure your lips are wonderfully smooth in prep for these gorgeous colors
Prime// use a dab of foundation or lip primer to de-color your lips if needed (my lips are really red naturally and I like to start my canvas more neutral looking) or provide a base so that your lips will not compete with the colors
Liner// you can purchase the matching liner as it helps to keep the lipstick in place from running or just provide a solid base to help keep the product on your lips longer
Neutral Makeup// keep the rest of your face simple. Bold lips speak for themselves and your eyes will be sufficient with a simple eyeliner, mascara and soft blush

If you do not already have a wonderful dark or bright colored lipstick I urge you to step out of the box today and try one! They are so much fun. Promise.

Are you wearing dark lips yet? If so which ones do you like?
