Don't rush to put away those bold statement lip colors just yet! Spring is right around the corner and you definitely will want to be sure that you pull out your reds, pinks, oranges and magenta lip colors as they've made a triumphant return this spring. Here are a few tips on nailing the look:

Choose the right shade of red, pink, orange or magenta color. If you're a little hesitant start off with a fuchsia color like our Lovumba and Oh Carolina matte lipsticks or our Timeless Liquid Lacquer in Starstruck rather than a classic red color. It's easier to wear because the blue undertone flatters a lot of complexions. Definitely go more for the deep, highly pigmented hues when looking for the perfect statement lip.
Apply directly from the tube rather than using a lip brush to apply your bold color. You'll get more drama that way and you won't have to apply so many layers like when using a brush. To prevent smudging you definitely want to stay away from the corners.
Clean around the edges with a lip brush to create the perfect lip shape. To avoid feathering use a clear lip liner to trace around the edges.
