Fall Beauty Trend: Adding Edge to the Classic Red Lip

Mindy Kaling Displays a Dark Red Pout at the Emmys

mindy-kaling--435
Funny girl Mindy Kaling (whose new show, The Mindy Project, premieres tonight) showed up at the Emmys in an elegant, dramatic look perfect for fall. In addition to her deep, forest green gown, coral and gold drop earrings, and perfectly sleek, tousled mane, she showed up in one of the most popular makeup trends right now: bold, dark red lips.

Classic, cherry red matte lips will always be a makeup mainstay and glossy citrus colors are a fun trend to try, but deep, wine shades or bold berry colors give an edgier look for fall. The merlot-stained shade of Mindy’s lips was the right dark red hue to complement her jewel-toned dress. Dark lips work on nearly every skin tone, and are meant to make a statement to instantly add a touch of drama to any outfit.

When investing in darker lip colors this fall, you can create several different looks with just one lip shade. A bare faced look with the same pop of cranberry color for both the lips and nails creates a chic statement. If you are more daring and want to try a smoky eye, go for a traditional navy eye shadow with a purplish-tinged red lip hue or keep it more subtle with a golden smoky eye and rust-red shade for the lips.

The beauty of a dark lip color is that you can enhance it or minimize it to fit your specific style. If you buy a color that is a tad too dark for daytime, soften it up by blotting the color and then applying a light layer of sheer gloss. If you want a richer, fuller look, use a matching lip liner before applying the full color and pay special attention to the center of your lips to create the perfect pout.

Which dark red color do you consider a must have for fall?
