Layers Beauty Tip of the Week

Flaunt some sexy red lips for fall. This notion can be daunting for those of us who have yet to hop on board the bold-lipped bandwagon, but once you do, I assure you, will not be disappointed. The instant glamorizing effect is absolutely undeniable and creates an alluring, iconic look that is always in style.

If you are a newcomer to the red lip rage, start off slow by pairing your vibrant pout with subtle, minimal eye makeup. Once you get a little more comfortable with the ravishing red, experiment with boosting the drama factor by lining your lids cat eye style. (Think Angelina Jolie)

Need some advice on picking your potion? The girls at the makeup counter of your local department store will no doubt be more than happy to help you find your perfect shade. I went with CHANEL's Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour in Lover, which is a bluish red, good for complexions with red undertones. For olive skin, go for a more orange shade of red.
