Bold lips are one of my favorite beauty trends that luckily enough transitioned from fall to winter. Even though it can be intimidating, it’s something that you should try at least once. I remember the first time I wore bold lipstick. It felt like all eyes were on me. I kept thinking to myself—what if it bleeds, flakes or leaves stains on my clothes?

But when done right, bold lips can create a great look that complements all skin tones and draws attention to the face. That’s why I approached Jasmine. She seemed to have her bold lipstick game on right and matched perfectly with the rest of her makeup and outfit. This burgundy lipstick is a classic shade that looks great with her skin tone.

How To: To get this Fashionista’s bold lips, start by choosing the right hue for you. If you have a fair skin tone, opt for a gloss because its transparency will let a little of your natural lip color come through and soften the overall contrast between lip color and skin. If you have a medium skin tone, choose a rich opaque burgundy or a blue red to show off cool undertones. For warm undertones, try an orange base. If you have a dark skin tone, go for a deep burgundy in a glossy finish because you can get away with dark colors. Here are my favorite bold lipsticks to try: Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Vintage Wine and Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color SPF 16 in Currant 84. So be daring, and rock that bold lipstick look!
