While many of the outfits are risk-taking ventures by some of today's hottest designers, bold lip colors paired with winged liquid eyeliner and tube mascara have emerged as common threads throughout the week's many fashion shows.

While winter is all about the perfect pouty red lips, spring gives ladies the chance to try out something a bit different. Thus far, some of the hottest lip hues have been tangerine, lavender and even varying shades of red. When paired with neutral eye makeup, it's the easiest way to make a statement with your ensemble.

The best part about these looks is that you can wear them during a night on the town or adapt them to your work ensembles. As long as you use a matte option or one that's not as shiny as other products, these lipsticks should blend with your outfit beautifully.

Spring is one of the most exciting times of year for fashion-forward individuals, so this is the perfect opportunity to stock up on lash curlers and other dynamic cosmetics in time for the season.
