Right now we’re into making a statement with a look that’s all about the bold lip. Four of our Beauty Stylists from around the country show us their favorite products and tips for mastering fall’s boldest makeup trend.

Bold lips are my jam! To create the perfect bold lip, I start by priming with Guerlain KissKiss Liplift (available in store). Priming helps your lipstick to adhere, and this one has a bonus of plumping and smoothing lips too! Then I line my lips with a lip liner in the same color family as my chosen lipstick to prevent feathering. I start in the center or bow of my lips and sketch outward. Some of my favorite colors are Nightmoth and Burgundy lip pencils from M•A•C and CHANEL Aqua Crayon in Rouge.
Next, I apply my lipstick starting in the center and working outward. I prefer a matte, bold lip and some of my go-to products are NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Damned and Cruella, M•A•C Matte Lip Shades in Instigator, Matte Royal and D For Danger and Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Femme Fatale.
Pro tip: Use Anastasia’s Highlighting Pencil over the bow of your upper lip and under your lower lip to get some extra POP!
