Fall Trend: Bold Lips (Mixing Lip Colors)

Wearing bold lips is just as fun as wearing dramatic eyes. It's nice to step away from your basic smokey eye for Fall and replace it with a bold lip instead. It's also fun to custom make your own lip colors (I do this all the time) into a new shade for you to wear and that's what I did for this lip color.

I wanted a really deep, dark red, plummy lip color so I decided to combine Wet N Wild Vamp It Up and Red Velvet Mega Last Lip Color. Vamp It Up is definitely a difficult color to pull off if it's not Halloween. That's why I paired it with another color to make it more appropriate for daily wear!

I also wanted to keep the eyes very minimal since the lips were the main focus of the look. That's why I went with really soft eyes with barely any color in my crease, clean winged eyeliner, and wispy lashes. :)
