This huge makeup trend for fall 2017 is one of my absolute all-time favorite makeup looks, and is also my personal go-to look, the Statement Lip. Making the focal point of your look a big, bold, glorious lip is one of the fastest ways to look fabulous, effortlessly.

The Statement  Lip gives you a way to look polished when you don’t have a lot of time.

5 Tricks To Pull Off The Statement Lip

You need to have some tricks up your sleeve in order to pull off this look.

  1. Create a creamy complexion. Stay away from heavy or powdery foundations, instead choose something that makes the skin glow and look pretty.
  2. Use a soft blush. Keep all the power in your lip, and scale back the cheek to a neutral, soft shade.
  3. Balance the lip with a soft brow. Avoid hideous Instagram-style eyebrows, but do add some depth to your brow, making them a little more defined and adding a little extra color.
  4.  Accent the lashes. Add a few coats of really great, high volume mascara. My top four high volume mascaras are Clarins Supra Lash, Diorshow Blackout, Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes and Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara.
  5. Choose your texture wisely. Statement lips don’t look so good in high gloss. Choose a matte finish or a satin finish. Longwear formulations are fantastic for a bold, statement lip.

Who Can Wear The Statement Lip

The Statement Lip really works best on slightly fuller lips. If your lips are thin, a bold lip may not be your best choice.

The Most Searched Lipstick Shade Of 2016

Do you follow The Zoe Report?
I get it in my inbox every day, I follow The Zoe Report on Instagram, and at the beginning of each season I receive the Rachel Zoe Box Of Style.

I recently read this article written by Andrea Navarro on The Zoe Report, and thought it was fabulous.

Red has long been the reigning lipstick color in the beauty world—it has the uncanny ability to take nearly any makeup look from plain Jane to bombshell status in an instant. However this year, a new shade has given the classic rouge a run for its money. According to an annual report conducted by Polyvore, searches for nude lipstick skyrocketed by 553%, making it the most searched color this year. This trend could mean that consumers are opting for more toned-down beauty looks, as nude hues are meant to resemble one’s natural lip color. To honor the newly crowned lipstick shade, we’ve compiled some of our favorite nudes for you to shop now.

So far each time the Box of Style has come out I have been overseas and I have to wait to get home and open it, but I get so geeked out over it that I have made it into an event. Because let’s face it, if you are an average girl like me, how often do you get to open a luxe box of individually wrapped presents, super chic statements for the new season ahead? ( try 4 times per year!)
