BEAUTY BAR: Bold And Berry

With Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas upon us, fall is coming to a close. Leaves are currently littering the ground, and holiday displays are up at Saks Fifth Avenue. It’s time to bring out the dark jewel tones that the colder months are known for.

This Fashionista chose to take a neutral outfit and pair it with a bold lip, one of my favorite looks. This Fashionista keeps it simple with some blue skinny jeans and an oversize brown coat. She accessorizes with a plain black scarf and combat boots. The oversized coat pairs well with the blue skinny jeans by keeping the coat looking oversized instead of just bulky. By keeping the look simple, the Fashionista is able to go big with her makeup.

This Fashionista goes for a bold lip in a deep berry color ,a dark red that’s a classic choice for the holiday season. Bold lips are on trend right now and picking a classic color such as this one makes the look versatile for any occasion the Fashionista might decide to attend. She keeps it neat with a matte finish that keeps her looking polished as well as allowing the look to last all day. The Fashionista lets the bold lips really shine by keeping the rest of her makeup neutral. She keeps her eye shadow basic with just a bit of eyeliner to tight line the eyes. Her blush’s warm undertones draw more attention to the lip color, and the bold brows are always a perfect complement.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: There are many options out there for a bold berry lip of all varying shades and price points. A more lower end option is Maybelline Color Sensations Creamy Matte in Divine Wine, while a higher end option is NARS Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte. Complement the bold eyes with neat brows that can achieved through the use of a good brow brush and pencil such as the Brow Whiz.
