Bold lipsticks are every girl's BFFs when it comes to easily switching things up in the beauty department—they give a classic yet modern, romantic yet edgy, look, depending on how you wear them. Whether you go bright and striking or dark and moody, a quick swipe of the right shade is guaranteed to instantly transform your look. But if you're new to this trend and want to steer clear of looking like a clown, here's a tip: Better keep your eye makeup light and go easy on the blush to ensure that your pout is the focal point of your face.
You might be asking: Why is trying an unusual lip color a big deal? Yes, they can be intimidating, but as you also know there are trends that are worth taking risks for, and this is one of them.
