BEAUTY BAR: Crimson Stain

Lip palette is a key beauty trend to watch out for for every season. It’s exciting to see which colors and shades come and go. For the fall/winter 2015 collection, we saw a range of color palettes take the stage. Out of them all, the shades of red definitely stood out. We had Carolina Herrera work the berry lips contrasting against the icy blue atmosphere of her collection, Marc Jacobs rock the dark plum lips and 3.1 Phillip Lim take over with crimson red.

What’s great about playing with bold lip colors is that you could be wearing the simplest outfit and your lips could complete the look. This Fashionista’s style is a prime example of this. She keeps it nice and casual by pairing a white and oxblood red raglan sleeve crop top with high-waisted black velvet leggings, finishing the look by throwing on a khaki coat. Her berry red lips complements the other shades of fall in her outfit including her nude-peach scrunchie, her soft rose eye shadow palette and her brown and burgundy knit socks. Ponytails are another reoccurring beauty trend that could be seen from this season’s collections. Whether it’s high up on your head or a low side-pinned style, it’s a simple way to manage your hair. Over all, the combination and balance between her outfit’s simplicity and the neutral-burgundy fall color scheme works well with the red lipstick pulling the outfit together.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To achieve this look, add a little crimson red lipstick to your fall outfits. For people who don’t usually wear lipstick, start off with a gentler color. Try out something less intimidating, like a softer cognac red. This Fashionista wears the bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick for a berry rose tint and then adds a layer of shimmer by applying the Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss on top, also from bareMinerals.
