BEAUTY BAR: Sugar Plum Fairy

Fall is one of my favorite times to try new lipstick colors. It is about being bold and confident in those trendy fall shades of lip color. This time of year the temperature has started to get chilly and what better way to warm up your look with a warm, rich lip?

What’s trending now: the perfectly lined plum lip! Her fresh face and simple eye makeup make this color pop. Not only does this color look great on everybody, but it is such a great shade to match with multiple different outfits. Our Fashionista is wearing an over-sized Aztec sweater, jeans and black and gold military boots. Pairing this type of bold lip color with solid colors or simpler ensembles will really make the shade stand out.

In order to achieve this beautiful fall lip, start by carefully lining your lips with a liner that either matches or is a bit darker than the plum shade to really define your lips and get that full look. Make sure when you apply the lip liner that you blend the liner inward toward your lips so you get a more gradual color change once you apply the lipstick. Next, apply your lipstick and remember to take your time! Working with darker colors on your lips can start to get messy if you aren’t careful. Once you are done, you can clean up around the outline of your lips with a foundation brush to guarantee a precise line.
