Bold Lips and Luscious Lashes

Try making a statement this fall by pairing bold lips and luscious lashes.  Lashes can take a look from just ordinary to bombshell.  There's a pair for everyone or you can apply individuals for a more natural look.  I usually wear strip lashes as shown below.  They give the eyes a slightly fuller look and more pop!  The lashes are weightless and can be worn both day and night.  If you're a lash novice using strip lashes, here's a tip -- measure, cut, and bend them to fit your lid.  Not all lashes fit every eye shape.  I struggled for a while with the application until I learned that trick.  I also learned to let the lash glue dry for about 30 seconds before applying them.  For beginners I suggest using E.L.F. cosmetics lashes.  They are inexpensive and you won't feel so bad if your ruin them with lash glue or cut them too short.
Wearing a bold lip can be as intimidating as wearing false lashes.  Lipstick smudges and can get on your teeth or anything you come in contact with.  The trick for the perfect bold lip is to prime your lips with concealer before applying.  You can also line the outer edges of your lips with a brush to prevent bleeding and make the lips look precise.  I used a dark lip liner and blended it with a red lipstick in the picture above.  Using a lip liner will make it easier when it's time to fill in the lips with lipstick.  I also applied a pigment to the center of the lips for a slight shimmer. 

So go for it, and don't be afraid to experiment with intense shades!  I hope this post got you feeling bold for fall.
