Brighten up your fall look with a poppy red pout. As bold as it is pretty, a crimson lip adds instant glamour to any ensemble. Get inspired by the exaggerated lips from the Prada Spring 2013 runway or take a cue from our InStyle Makeover cover girl, Julianne Hough, who recently stepped out with a prominent pucker. Everyone can pull off the look—the key is finding the right color for your complexion. If you have fair skin, look for hues with blue undertones, while warmer skin tones should stick with shades that have a yellow-orange base. Just remember when wearing a bold red lip to dab a light layer of concealer onto your pout before applying product. This mutes your natural lip color and allows the true shade to come through. Gabrielle Union, Cobie Smulders, and Solange Knowles all recently made beauty statements with red lipstick.
