BEAUTY BAR: All About That Lip

Lipstick is like an accessory. It can add a bit of style to a look just like a great pair of stilettos can. Lately, I’ve been loving deep, berry lipsticks for fall. On most days, I can’t be bothered to put anything on my lips besides chapstick; however, spotting this Fashionista made me think twice about my low key beauty routine.

There’s nothing that screams fall more than a vampy lip. Red lipstick’s sultry cousin, a great berry hue is just as dramatic but a little more unexpected. For a night out on the town or even just a day of classes when you want to look like you made an effort, a berry lip is the perfect accessory. Take a cue from this Fashionista and pair a berry lip with simple, clean makeup, especially if you’re wearing it during the day. What’s great about a dark lipstick is you instantly look put together, even though it takes only a minute to swipe on. No need to worry about your cat eye when your lips are taking center stage.

This Fashionista rocks her berry lipstick with edgy, ripped black jeans and a loose chambray shirt. The bold lipstick takes these casual, go-to street style pieces up a notch.

Round aviator sunglasses are a great alternative to the classic aviator shape. The statement piece paired with the lipstick add personality to the look. Lastly, a pair of patterned black and white Nike sneakers are the perfect finishing touch. In a sea of basic black or white trainers, these really stand out.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: For a bold berry lip like this one, start with a lipliner to help make it last. Next, choose a great berry lipstick. Done!
