Shay Mitchell shows off her plum lips

Shay Mitchell's Plum Lips: Makeup Tutorial

by Kathy Saunders -

Last Fall, Shay Mitchell hit the red carpet with plum colored lips we couldn't forget.

At the Target and Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection launch, Mitchell rocked this perfectly fun Fall look. We especially love how the bright color pops against her dark hair and black fur coat.

Like Shay, we tend to store away all of our peach and pink lipsticks in favor of deep berries and dark reds once the weather gets colder and Fall is well and truly on it's way. Autumn is a great time to lean on a little extra makeup to bring color to our faces (so long, summer tan!) and experiment with moody hues. Here's how:

Pretty Little Lipstick

Step one: Start with a smoothing and perfecting primer to minimize the appearance of fine lines and pores. Next, use concealer to hide imperfections.

Step two: Use a brush to apply foundation to the rest of your face. Be sure to choose the amount of coverage that is right for you, and remember that the goal is to have a flawless base.

Step three: Eyebrows frame the face and can dramatically change a look, but filling them in is somehow one of the most overlooked steps in makeup routines. Use a freshly sharpened brow pencil and fill in your brows with short, light strokes for a natural appearance.

Step four: Use a shimmery eyeshadow all over the lid and your best mascara to maximize lash length and volume.

Step five: Smile! Then, apply a dusty rose blush to the apples of your cheeks.

Step six: Apply a vibrant plum lipstick of your choice, such as L'Oreal's Color Riche in Sparkling Amethyst.

It's as easy as that! Remember, pulling off a bold lipstick is more about confidence than anything else, so wear those plum lips with attitude!
