Bold lips are HOT right now, but we want to show you guys how to take it to the next level. Take Dianna Agron for example- she just turned the typical red lip into something more with just one easy step. To really pull this look off without looking too scary, don’t neglect your skin or eyes. Conceal any under eye darkness to avoid looking like a zombie and add bronzer for subtle definition. Don’t forget your eyes! The perfect balance to a dark lip is nude eyeshadow, black eyeliner and mascara! Here’s how:

Step 1: Exfoliate lips with our Lip Exfoliator for smooth, flake free lips.

Step 2: Line the lips using a black pencil eyeliner (try our Mineral Eyeliner in ‘Black’). Fill in just the outer corners of the lips for more dimension. Using our Retractable Lip Brush, blend the black liner out into the lips.

Step 3: Grab a bold red or plum lipstick (try our Matte Lip Color in ‘Rich Red’ or our Lipstick in ‘Fearless’) and apply to the lips, making sure to blend the liner and the lipstick for a smooth look. If you want more intensity, re-line the lips with the black eyeliner over your lipstick.
