Fall 2009 Beauty Trend: Bold Lips



While bold, look-at-me eyes have always ruled the fall trend report (and are still hot this season), the bold, red lip has made a fierce and very glamorous comeback. Everything from a classic, smooth-finished cherry red to a vampy and rebellious bordeaux were seen on the runways during Fashion Week. We recommend that if you are not sure if this will work for you, or fear going too bold on your lips, press red lipcolor onto lips for a stained look, or try it as sheer gloss. Keep cheeks and eyes softly colored in light and neutral tones.
