Our daughter Marla keeps up with the hottest make-up trends. All through college (SFSU) and graduate school (Boston U) the latest cosmetics has been a hobby for her. This season, Marla says, is all about red lips. Celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal agrees: If you invest in nothing else for fall, treat yourself to a red lipstick. It will make your skin radiant and your smile sparkle. Apply gloss first. This creates a sheer red that is less dramatic than opaque red.
Use your skin tone as a guide. Fair skin? Go for a pinky red. Medium or olive? Try brick red. Ebony? Try crimson, red wine.
