A capsule wardrobe includes classic pieces you can wear year-round, with any outfit creation. Makeup can follow the same idea. Your classic black blazer could be your go-to nude, or a pair of perfect pumps are your red matte lipstick. A crisp white shirt is your OG mascara while your best jeans and your perfect-skin concealer are peas in a pod. You get the picture, right? So, let’s talk lipsticks! A perfect lipstick wardrobe consists of bold lipsticks you can wear every season, and appeal to any attitude, occasion, or outfit.
These are the bold lipstick shades you need in your collection.
Go for a bold lip with Spicy and paint your smile with a true red when you want to feel confident, classy, and polished. You can achieve a classic day look with a nude eye to pair or dress it up with glitter and a smokey eye.
Aside from red, hot pink is the lipstick must-have, and it doesn’t get any better than Bragin Fruit. The slightly blue-based fuschia flatters most skin tones and brings a sense of fun, femininity, and vibrancy. Show your playful side!
When we’re talking “bold”, purple always comes to mind. Berry is a true purple, like…felt-tip pen, Barney purple. However, while it is certainly “out there”, it is also wearable if you pair it with a simple eye and a clean-yet-natural base. It brings a modern cyber feel with a touch of 90s dance club glam. (However, if it were the 90s it would be packed with glitter and worn with space buns and frosted brow bones).
A true orange lip color is an unsung hero of the glam world, and Let’s Make Out is a perfect example. It’s a statement, but it’s gentle enough to accommodate bold eye looks or get on board with a more casual day. It’s red’s super cool and groovy cousin and works with almost all skin tones.
Okay, a “my lips but better” shade might not be considered “bold” for some. However, if it’s deep enough and far enough into the coral side, it can certainly make a statement. If you’re a strict clear gloss and balm kind of person, it may as well be neon! Adios Beaches is the perfect example, with peachy, coral tones that fuse beautifully with many skin tones, perfect for enhancing a juicy pout.
