Learn how to balance a bold lip with natural eye makeup

Lipstick has a long and interesting history. Bold lips, especially, have been en vogue throughout the years, and today's liquid lipstick makes the trend even easier to follow. Liquid products are often more pigmented, so the product lasts longer while delivering intense color.
