Pick one in a bold shade that makes your pout pop -- whether it's rich berry mauve as seen at Sonia Rykiel or hot fuchsia a la Diane von Furstenberg and Tommy Hilfiger.
How to rock fuchsia lips
- Find a flattering shade for your complexion. Fair skin tones can opt for bright mauve pinks while tanned skin tones should go for deeper fuchsia.
- Take a cue from Diane von Furstenberg, and balance bold lips by keeping the rest of your makeup low-key. Team with an eyeliner, mascara and neutral blush for a fresh, matte look.
- To avoid feathering, fill in your lips with a lip liner pencil in a shade close to your natural lips before applying lipstick.
- Invest in a lip brush. Backstage at Sonia Rykiel, fuchsia lips were painted with a lip brush for that perfect pout. Precision is key when it comes to strong-hued lips -- applying color straight from the tube won't give you that sharp precise finish.
