Lest you be nervous about their practicality, celebrity makeup artist and red carpet guru, Lina Hanson, puts her stamp of approval on fall’s bold looks for lips. “I love the different vibrant colors. It’s a great fall trend. On the red carpet we will see that a lot, too. The oranges, hot pinks, the berry, the purple, those are big.”
