BEAUTY TREND: THE LIP

 We’ve seen a lot of beautiful makeup looks for Fall 2010 including glowing skin, smoky eyes, and ethereal “barely there” makeup, but one thing that is sure to make a statement are the lips. When you are feeling a little pale as winter approaches, the easiest way to spice up a look is with a dramatic lip. A deep red shade can add glamour to a cocktail dress, while a bright red will lighten your mood on those dreary days. A dark burgundy will flatter both petite and voluptuous lips while making a serious impact. Keep the eyes soft and light so as not to overwhelm the face. Check out these hot off-the-runway looks from the Fall 2010 fashion shows.

A bright, uneven orange stain was smeared on at Max Azria to create a sun-kissed glow. Dab a lip stain on your finger, gently smear it on the lip, and add a tiny bit of gloss to replicate this look.

Vena Cava painted a pretty, perfect lip in hot red. For this look, try a liner and fill your lips in with a satin lipstick for a perfect pout.

Gorgeous and just a little goth in dark purple lipstick over at Peter Som, the key is to keep the hair soft and clean and the skin natural to really show off this deep color and make a statement.

A deep burgundy looks elegant at Luca Luca, creating a sophisticated, classic look that’s perfect for an evening out.

A strong lip will make it look like you spent tons of time on your pretty little face when it only took seconds. So grab a deep red or bright orange in a tone that flatters your skin, and you will be beauty trend-ready for Fall.
