Beauty Buzz | #TargetStyle Fall 2013 Fashion Presentation Features Bold Lip Trend

Target Fall 2013 Fashion Presentation

I'm thrilled to be partnering with Target again this season to feature the latest fashion and beauty trends for fall.

Last weekend I stealthily attended a top secret fashion presentation held at Hudson River Park's Pier 57 where Target featured its fall 2013 women's and men's collections. Much like its memorable television commercials, Target's fall runway show was pure toe-tapping entertainment. Models floated onto the runway via conveyor belts showcasing this season's hottest trends including: embellishments, tailored pieces, black & white looks, wavy hair, and one of my all-time favorite beauty trends, bold lips.

I pretty much wear a bold lip every time I go out for something special. My lips are on the thin side and I have a gummy smile so bold color makes them really pop. One of my beauty resolutions in 2012 was to wear bright lipstick more often and I've really stuck to it. In fact, I was wearing a bold red at the show and most of the week!

One of my go-to colors is Revlon's Fire & Ice which is a great, universally appealing shade. If you're unsure of the bold lip trend, I wrote about how to get the perfect red lip on Babble this summer, and it applies to all dark shades. To recap:

(1) Make sure your lips are hydrated! Cracked and peeling lips will make your lipstick bleed and look uneven. Dry lips are also a sign that you’re dehydrated so be sure to drink plenty of water and apply lip moisturizer or balm to maintain healthy skin. To get a long lasting finish, apply a primer, which can also help smooth out the lips.

(2) Apply a lip liner. If you’re not using a primer, apply liner over your entire lips. Liner helps control the flow of color to the defined lip area and prevents feathering. Just be sure to choose a lip liner shade in nude or one that will compliment the lipstick you are using!

(3) Choose a bold color that works well with your skin tone. Finding the right shade can be a bit of trial and error (fun too!) but there are a few rules of thumb: Blue-based colors (cool) typically pair better with pale to medium skin tones and orange-based colors (warm) with olive and dark tones.
