What better way to amp up your fall makeup look than to add in a bright, bold and eye catching statement lip. Whether you opt for fire engine red, flowery fuchsia, zesty tangerine or petal pink, your sure to score some major chicness points if you go for a statement pout this season. Celebrity Chicistas are loving this look for fall with some of our favorite ladies like Emily Blunt, Nicole Richie, Sofia Vergara and Gwen Stefani (the OG when it comes to this look) rocking this very chic beauty trend. The best thing about this trend is that it makes the rest of your makeup process so much simpler since a fresh faced nude look is the perfect complement to a bright bold pout.

It important to note that the first step to mastering this trend is to prep your lips, we’ve got some great tips on how to do that in out How to Master The Perfect Pout post. Aside from healthy happy lips that are lipstick ready you’re obviously going to need a shade of lipstick that will complement your skin tone and this is the tricky part.

For ladies with tan to dark skin tones we love super saturated colors like oranges, fuchsias and pinks. These hues will all play well with your skin tone and are perfectly suited for fall.

If you are on the fairer side we suggest going with classic bold red lips, fuchsia or even a berry-ish wine hue, these type of colors will give you that bright bold look without totally overpowering your face.

When it comes to the application technique we are loving the matte lip look. To get an easy and simple matte finish to any lipstick just simply apply the lipstick to your lips then dab a light layer of translucent powder onto your lips. The powder will mattify the finish of your lipstick and give your lip color some serious staying power.
