img1203Celebrate jewel tones this autumn and rock a ruby lip. While ruby may look intimidating in the tube, it’s actually a very flattering color for most skin tones. With a few simple tips you can own this daring lipstick and avoid any potential lipstick-on-the-teeth faux-paus.

First, choose the right shade. Pick a lighter red to make lips look fuller or go darker for a more dramatic look. Dab a bit of lipstick on the apples of your cheeks and blend with your fingers for a coordinated look.

Give your color a second chance. Soften a bright red with a warm toned lip gloss or top with pink gloss for a warmer hue.

Apply your color with care. Ruby hues draw attention to your lips and should be applied inside the lip line.

Skip the lip liner unless you desperately need the extra volume. Ruby lipstick is eye-catching on its own.

Keep your pout in line by applying concealer around your lip line. This prevents smudges and keep the color in place.

Rock you ruby lips in time for autumn and fall in love with this makeup trend.
