Whether you prefer red, pink or fuschia lips, there is a bold color out there for even the shyest of girls. Depending on what looks good with your skin tone, choose a hydrating formula lipstick that has staying power.

When rocking a bold lip, it's essential to balance it out with your eye makeup. Minimal liner, lots of mascara and soft eyeshadow colors are a great way to complement bright lip colors and create a beautiful, streamlined look.

There is nothing worse than an overly streaky or too-dark blush! When wearing bold lips during the daytime, skip the heavy rouge and choose a sheer blush that will also serve as a highlighter. Blush that has a slight sparkle and sheen to it will give you just enough shimmer to accentuate your lip color without overpowering it. Cream and powder blushes are perfect for pairing with a daytime statement lip.
