I love a bold lip. As Rachel Roy's fall 2011 runway show illustrated, fall is a great time to play with the warm hues of the season in your clothing and makeup as well. From apple reds to deep magentas, a great colored lip can really bring a sense of confidence to any outfit.

And while most Fashionistas reserve bright hues for evening, this Fashionista turned nighttime glamour into daytime drama with a strong lip. Your makeup can act as an accessory, as seen by her bright red pout acting as the focal point for the rest of her outfit. When wearing a bold lip, it's important to keep the rest of your look simple, like the featured Fashionista. It's your smile's time to shine- let your lips do all the talking.

Wearing a bold lip takes an little effort, but the impact it makes is well worth it. Prep your lips, apply your favorite bright lipstick, and get ready to take on the day with confidence.

Expert tip from Eva Chen (@EvaChen212): A bold lip is a definite fall (and perennial) must-try! Apply product with a brush (we love Make Up For Ever's!) for the more clean and precise look—there's nothing worse than a sloppy red lip. And if you're afraid to take the color plunge, consider dipping your toe in the bold lip waters with a stain. Our two favorites are by Tarte (a super sheer and moisturizer crayon-style stain) and NYC Color (which has a great, super pointy tip for precision).
