While bold, look-at-me eyes have always ruled the fall trend report (and are still hot this season), the bold, red lip has made a fierce and very glamorous comeback. Everything from a classic, smooth-finished cherry red to a vampy and rebellious bordeaux were seen on the runways during Fashion Week. We recommend that if you are not sure if this will work for you, or fear going too bold on your lips, press red lipcolor onto lips for a stained look, or try it as sheer gloss. Keep cheeks and eyes softly colored in light and neutral tones.

When it comes to retro-glamour and classic makeup looks, Dita Von Teese has made her mark in the beauty and fashion world. With her distinct style, the celeb has many wondering how she does it. We are here to share a few of her beauty secrets (which really aren’t a secret since she did post these on her Twitter page).
When it comes to foundation, Dita isn’t a snob. She loves using L’Oréal True Match in N1 ($10.95, drugstore.com).
To give her fair cheeks a flush of color, Dame and The Perfect Cheek both by MAC ($18.50, maccosmetics.com) are the ones she wears most.
