Lip Service: Lip Inspiration

Looking for some Lip Inspiration?  Board with your everyday gloss or neutral lipstick?  Check out these pretty lips for some great ideas to bust out of a lip rut.  Not sure what color to start with?  Click here for a chart of the Best Red Lips Shades for Your Skintone.

Create mega shine!  In sharp contract to the matte, non-glossy pouts of summer, fall lets the gloss flow. Pick your favorite lip color and then top it with a shinny lip gloss in the same color.  For a pre-holiday glow, pick a gloss with a bit of sparkle.  Photo credit.

The Beauty Department  shows you how to get in on the trends: Try their Oxblood Lip Trend for a perfect transition into fall.  This juicy red lip is sure to get you noticed.  See their photo tutorial here.

Want to go more natural?  Create a DIY lip stain.  This tutorial walks you through step by step using beets!  (You'd never guess from that pretty pink!)  Or you can always indulge in a cherry popcicle!

Another gorgeous lip for a fall transition from The Beauty Department: Going Baroque.  Use a gold cream to stamp the center of the lip for a multi-dimensional effect.  Would look smashing with a pair of gold earrings!  See the instructions here.

Ombre has been getting lots of attention in the makeup world lately.  Transition this trend to your lips using a few complimentary opaque colors.  This one isn't for the faint of heart and will take a little practice.  Follow these steps to get the look above.

Want something totally edgy?  These lip tattoos from Sephora would be perfect for a nightclub or Halloween look.

Speaking of Halloween, how fun is this lip look?  Totally impractical, but very fun!  Photo credit.

What lip colors are you wearing currently?  I'm favoring a berry lipstick or poppy pink stain at the moment!  Share your colors of choice in the comments.
