You’ve spent years perfecting your go-to makeup look, and that’s lovely. But on those days when you feel like stepping out of your smoky eye-nude lip norm, consider trying out one of spring's hottest lip colors: poppy red.

Equal parts bold and classic, this universally flattering lip color—while never actually out of style—is super trendy this season.

Opt for satin or shiny textures to add dimension. If you're feeling particularly bold, make like the model above (on the runway at Rodarte) and pair a red lip with an equally colorful eye. To let the lip color take center stage, keep the rest of your face subtle. 

If you're choosing a matte look, you're going to want to be precise. Start by hydrating your lips with a balm. Then use a liner to define the shape of your lips before filling them in with lipstick.

So put-together and so chic.
