In the warm weather months I tend to turn both uber bright and neutral lip colors, but I save the deep, bold lips for fall. There is something about the turning of the leaves (you know the ones I see on Instagram since I live in Florida, bwah!) that makes me want to bust out my reds. * A tip...Before you bring out your deep lip colors this fall, make sure your pout is good and hydrated! If they aren't, exfoliate your lips STAT. You can slick on an exfoliating lip product or take it old school and simply use a balm and toothbrush or terrycloth towel to slough off any dead skin. THEN you're ready to rock bold lips! On that note, I thought I would share some of my favorite bold lip color finds...and they're all in the red realm. What can I say? I'm a creature of habit!
